Located just a mile off the coast in front of L’Estartit beach, The Medes Islands archipelago is part of the Montgrí, Medes Islands and Baix Ter Nature Park.
The Medes archipelago, has seven islets and a surface area of about 23 hectares. The Medes Islands are today one of the most important marine flora and fauna reserves in the western Mediterranean, as well as being a popular scuba diving destination. Twenty years of protection have brought about a spectacular recovery of the wealth of the seabed, the marine environment and the islands themselves.
Companies operating in the area offer attractive trips in glass-bottomed boats around the islands and along the equally stunning Montgrí coast. The wide range of water and underwater activities available must comply with the regulations that have enabled the preservation of this natural space.
