Costa Brava Spain Beaches - Discover
A Beach Desired For Centuries
By Ancient Civilisations...
Sant Marti D’Empuries
The charms of the beach of Sant Marti D’Empuries and its neighbouring beaches, El Moll Grec and Les Muscleres, enticed the ancient Greeks over 2000 years ago to conquer this land and build a town that became their gateway to the Iberian Peninsula (Ruines de Empuries).
These charms have not gone unnoticed today either...
Since 2011, the Bay of Roses (which includes the beaches of L'Escala, Sant Marti d'Empuries, Sant Pere Pescador, Empuriabrava and Roses) is in the Most Beautiful Bays in the World Club! This is a UNESCO endorsed classification.
Sant Marti D’Empuries is a fabulous long sandy beach.
The ruins of a Greek jetty provide for great snorkelling.
A pine tree lined tarmac promenade (Passeig Maritim D’Empuries) that leads all the way to L’Escala, runs behind the beach. A great place to walk, run, cycle or rollerblade.
Behind Passeig Maritim D’Empuries lies the impressive ruins of the ancient settlement of Empuries.
The “modern” (10th century!) walled village of Sant Marti D’Empuries is really beautiful. I always bring friends that visit to this village, as it's like stepping back in time.
