Empuriabrava Introduction

Empuriabrava, as the name suggests, lies on the Costa Brava forty-four kilometres from the border with France. It is an area that was reclaimed from marshland and is built around canals with many residences having their own moorings. Empuriabrava has a huge marina which does a roaring trade in second-hand boats. The beach is one kilometre in length and offers a wide variety of water sports. The resort has accommodation catering for all budgets and restaurants accommodating all tastes. Empuriabrava has an outdoor market where you can barter for your holiday souvenirs.

Why Go To Empuriabrava?

An Empuriabrava holiday will satisfy those with an interest in all things nautical. It is, of course, a modern resort but its layout, with over thirty kilometres of canals is very attractive. The beach is sandy, the water clear and there are more than enough recreational activities to keep holidaymakers entertained throughout their stay.

Although an Empuriabrava holiday is popular with a range of interests and ages, it particularly attracts those who have an interest in boats. There is also an airfield with a parachute centre where solo and tandem jumps can be taken.

When To Go To Empuriabrava

April to October is the best time to visit Empuriabrava when the temperature ranges from 20 degrees rising to 30 degrees in the summer months.

Empuriabrava - The Place

Lying on Spain’s wild coast, the Costa Brava, Empuriabrava is an oasis of calm with over twenty kilometres of canals winding their way through the resort. Tiny bridges criss-cross their way through the village. It is the perfect choice for those hiring boats as many of the villas and apartments have their own moorings. Many gardens go down to the water’s edge so extra care must be taken of children.

The marina is huge and there are many boat yards supporting its needs. Crafts of all shapes and sixes are bought and sold here.

The sandy beach is a kilometre long with water providing safe conditions for children and less confident swimmers. A wide variety of water sports are available from the beach including sailing, wind surfing and paragliding. There are also other, quieter, beaches in the area.

Empuriabrava has range of accommodation from hotels to upmarket villas and from apartments to studios thus catering for most budgets. The same can be said of restaurants which cater for most tastes.

Apart from the obvious influence of the marina and waterways, there are many leisure pursuits offered by Empuriabrava. A world famous sky diving school operates from the airfield. Beginners, as well as experienced jumpers, are welcome and tandem jumps are available. Another popular activity, particularly with boy-racers, is the go-kart track. Horse riding is also available and there are at least four golf courses within a thirty minute drive of Empuriabrava.

Car hire is recommended if you wish to explore the surrounding area which has some very picturesque sights. The old town of Castello d’Empuires with the Basilica of St. Mary and the nature reserves around Empuriabrava are all worth visiting.

An Empuriabrava holiday has much to offer visitors including relaxing on sandy beaches, navigating winding waterways, sailing on the sea and jumping out of the sky. With these and many more activities, Empuriabrava can certainly be said to have something for everyone.

Empuriabrava Nightlife

Empuriabrava has a fairly lively nightlife with several nightclubs where you can party until the early hours of the morning. There is even an open air nightclub on the beach complete with swimming pool. There are of course many fine restaurants where you can enjoy a romantic meal overlooking the gently flowing canal waters.

Empuriabrava Shopping

Empuriabrava has a good number of supermarkets supplying essential provisions as well as specialist shops and boutiques. There is also an open air market every Saturday morning where tourists can barter for their goods and buy their holiday mementoes. Popular purchases include leather goods, ceramics, basketwork and jewellery.

Empuriabrava Eating

Empuriabrava has a wide variety of culinary choices to offer holiday makers ranging from the traditional local dishes such as paella, tortillas, tapas and chorizo to an extensive choice of international cuisine. A good way to try Spanish food is to order a plate of tapas which consists of a medley of bite-sized dishes. Tapas are also ideal for filling the sometimes long gap between lunch and dinner, which is served later in Spain than at home. Spanish wines are pleasant and inexpensive. Children are always made welcome and their tastes and portion sizes are usually accommodated.
