A beginner's guide to renting a villa or apartment in Empuriabrava

Empuriabrava is one of the more hidden gems of the Costa Brava, bordering the resorts of Roses, Figueres and Girona. Located in the Gulf of Roses in the district of Castelló d'Empúries, it is the largest residential marina in Europe, boasting a vast network of canals and waterways, as well as three golden sand beaches. This luxury waterfront neighbourhood is perfect for those looking for glorious beaches, water sports and upmarket bars and restaurants away from the main crowds. The best way to get around is by hiring a boat or bike, with plenty of cycling routes to choose from.

A visit to Empuriabrava is incomplete without getting involved in some type of watersport. From sailing to canoeing, surfing and skydiving, the Venice of the Costa Brava has it all. If unwinding by the beach is more your thing, there are three to choose from, with the main beach, Platja Empuriabrava along the marina boasting 1.5km of golden sand, a children's playground, sports courts and access to parking. Practically all residential roads lead to the beach, so it's impossible to miss it! For a change of scenery, Aiguamolls de l'empordà wetland reserve is home to over 300 species of bird, with its exotic flora and fauna and local wildlife, from herds of deer to beautiful white horses.

Unlike Emuriabrava which is one of the youngest resorts in the Costa Brava, Castello d’Empúries is steeped in history. Basílica de Santa Maria de Castelló d'Empúries is the second largest building in the Costa Brava and a must see for its elaborate Gothic architecture. Learn about one of Spain's most influential painters in Figueres, just 12km away, where Salvador Dalí was born and now lies the Dalí Theatre and Museum. Or why not take a day trip to Girona, about an hour's drive from Empuriabrava. For families, little ones will enjoy learning about the local wildlife at Butterfly Park, or practicing their swing at Minigolf Carmansó, before the adults have a go at Golf Castello.
