This beautiful and diverse Natural Park in the heart of Costa Brava has three distinctive parts: the Medes Island, the Montgrí Massif and the alluvial plain called Baix Ter. In the marine part (2.037 ha) there is a small archipelago - the Medes Islands -, made up of seven islets and a small number of reefs. It’s an area of extraordinary biological and ecological value, due to the wide variety of environments and species found there (1.345, marine taxons in the plant and animal groups studied) in a setting of an extremely beautiful landscape. The archipelago is situated scarcely a mile from the Montgrí Massif, of which geologically it is the extension into the sea. The massif is a well-defined ridge rising up between the two alluvial plains. The south alluvial - called Baix Ter - has crops, irrigation channels and marshes.
On the coast, the town of L'Estartit is one of the liveliest tourism resorts in Costa Brava, offering a rich blend of culture, history and entertainment. With the Mediterranean Sea and the Medes Islands as a backdrop to its beautiful setting, it is the perfect departure point for neverending scuba-diving, snorkeling and kayaking adventures.
