With 200km of coastline, 17 marines and ports, more than 30 underwater safaris, sailing and windsurfing schools, two natural parks, and a marine reserve, the Costa Brava is the ideal place for indulging your adventurous side and practising your favourite water sports. On this Catalan coastline, you will find a large number of specialised companies willing to help you fully enjoy the Costa Brava coasts and practise the large number of water sports available without any problems, making it the perfect location for the most daring holidays.
You can practise snorkelling on the Costa Brava, as all you need are diving goggles, flippers, and a wetsuit. This water sport allows you to discover the most attractive areas in the Mediterranean and swim between the secluded coves, islands and islets, grasslands, and the natural reserves in the Cabo de Creus and the Medes Islands. If you would like to go snorkelling head down to Llançà in the Alt Empordá, where you can hire all the equipment you need, as well as guides and get all the help and information necessary to guarantee a fantastic experience. Alternatively, you can go to the L’Estartit-Illes Medes and Medaqua en L’Estartit water sports centres, in the Baix Empordà.
In L`Escala you can also hire equipment and everything else that you need to practise water skiing and wakeboard, a much more dynamic version of water skiing that involves more jumps and spins. The areas and maritime conditions are perfect in this town for practising these water sports.
What if what you prefer is discovering hidden caves, small coves, and lost corners of the Costa Brava? Then why not do things in your own time, with no noise, at your own pace, bit by bit? Becasue, there is nothing like discovering all the hidden corners of the coast in a kayak. If this is what you would like to do, short excursions for beginners, larger trips for experts, and navigation courses can be organised in Llançà, and L’Estartit in Baix Empordà. There is a large range of activities available with different routes and for all levels ensuring that you fully enjoy the beauty of the Costa Brava.
Do you like the wind, speed, oscillating between the sea and the sky, and lots of excitement? Do you the feel of the wind propelling your sailboat, jumping to great heights, gliding, and almost flying? In the Bahia de Roses and the golf of the Pals on the Costa Brava you will find all the space you need to practise windsurfing and all related sports. Furthermore, there are numerous professional companies to teach you and where you can hire all the equipment that you need.
If you are visiting with your family and you would just like to travel around from one town to another, visit inaccessible coves and enjoy the sea, then maybe a cruise would be your ideal choice. This option not only allows you to discover the beauty of the Costa Brava coast, but also introduces you to the underwater world which is directly visible through the glass at the bottom of the boat. There are many options on the Costa Brava and you can choose between trips for taking in the scenery, others with more time to swim or disembark and take a look around a town, as well as glass-bottomed boats so you can freely look at the fish. You will find all this and much more in the towns of L’Escala, L’Estartit, Palamós and Blanes, where there are many different and specialised companies that can help make your family holiday on the coast of the Costa Brava a fun and unforgettable one.
For practising all these activities and many more water sports, you will be able to find different specialised companies in the different towns. Thus, in Port de la Selva head down to the Port de la Selva Yacht club. In L`Escala you will find Funstastic Emporda, whilst in L`Estartit you have the option of Estartit Yacht club or L’Estarti-Illes Medes and Medaqua water sports centre.
