The ruins of a Greek city settled from about 400BC and the later Roman city slightly inland settled in about 200BC after the Punic War. The ruins are ruins but they are well laid out and there is an excellent audioguide which brings the place alive and makes it a most interesting visit. There is a museum which houses the statue of Asklepios, the Greek god of medicine as seen in the picture above. Well worth the 2 to 3 hours, although I guess you would need some interest in history to enjoy it.

This is a very wide stretch of sand with car parking right on the beach. There is plenty of room for all visitors to find their own patch of sand. Not many facilities along it but 1 or 2.

Discover the countryside of the Emporda from above as you enjoy the magical sensation of flying with a balloon. Admire the Costa Brava from 1300 m altitude; the bay of Roses, the Medes Islands, the Pyrenees, old villages...and after we will go to have a local breakfast! Say yes to adventure! Shared flights: 160€ per person older than 10 years old, and 100€
A professional team of balloonists and an excellent pilot made this trip a wonderful and unique experience. All care was taken to brief everyone on the event and every safety precaution was taken. It was a beautiful and remarkable flight with a soft landing without (the otherwise usual) tipping over of the basket. Expert execution of the flight!!!
Afterwards a typical Catalan lunch was served, and a bottle of bubbly spirit was popped :-) Beautiful pictures, the map of the route and altitudes of the flight and a personal magnetic photo are included! Really recommended!!!

Great (incredible) location but needs some more attention to overall maintenance. A few massive mid range restaurants and some housing that could be better taken care and made more attractive. It is not bad, but it could be great with some more attention to detail and investment, given the gem it actually is.

Scuba diving on the Medes Islands, one of the very best diving locations in the Med. Groupers everywhere, eagle rays, tunas, coral, cave diving etc. Top-notch PADI diving center with 2 large well-equipped special-purpose diving boats. Extremely professional and friendly staff. Highly recommended.

We loved cala montgo, the right combination of beautiful cove, lovely sand, shallow water and plenty of cafes and bars without it being too overrun. There's pedalos and sunbed hire, but its all quite low key. Lovely for all ages! And theres parking not far.

At first glance a museum about anchovies may not look interesting but after our visit I was enthralled about the history.
On arrival the lady on the front desk recommended the route around the museum and set up the opening film to play in English for us. It gave a short overview of the anchovy industry in the area. An English translation booklet was provided to guide us around what turned out to be a delightful little museum dedicated to the hard working people who went out in all weathers to fish for anchovies and sardines.
A good way to spend a couple of hours.
