Along the Paseo de Ampurias, we find this beautiful beach surrounded by rocks and green forest. la Playa del Portitxol de l'Escala is another small jewel of the Costa Brava
This beach is considered one of the most beautiful of the Costa Brava’s and is located about a kilometer and a half from the center of L’Escala, next to the remains of the ancient Greek port of Empuries, in a beautiful setting, protected by rock formations and pine forests that reach the shore.
For its beauty and the quality of its services, Playa del Portitxol de l’Escala has been awarded the Blue Flag of the European Union.
Access to the beach is done from the Paseo de las Dunas, a footpath just over 2 km long along the coast and L’Escala connects with the pretty medieval village of SantMartíd’Empúries . So, if you fancy a stroll, this is a perfect opportunity where you can see beautiful panoramic beaches, rock formations and the ruins.
