Go to the town called L'Escala. Close to it is the Spot. It's found next to the Old Greek and Roman archelogyc Runes. There is an old and small town near the beach, called St Martí d'Empúries.

Differnent Points. The most surfed is the big one between the harbore and the rocks which creates rights and lefts. Becareful where you park the car.Some places are privated.
Since now, not so crowded spot. You can surfing and listening the old church bells ringing, giving the time. Seems like surf in an old Roman place, because of the runes. Recomend to visit it.
During the summer (worst season, crowded of people not surfer)
Great spot, ideal situation. Surfing and culture. For me one of the best of the mediterreanan sea. Very clean water and optim weather.

Sin olas - Estuve de socorrista toda la temporada pasada de Socorrista en esa playa y no lo vi romper 1 solo dia, muy decepcionado..

Creo que elegiste un mal día - Como en todas partes,si desfasa...k-k. Espero que en tu próxima visita tengas más suerte. Es un spot que con poco ya funciona.

impressive and mystic place - I am from Barcelona, and this is the first place I tried in the Mediterranean. Certainly it is a mystic place to surf. You even have a roman breakwater on the right side. And it is impressive listening "bells" from the church while surfing. That is the best point. Worst point is the "resaka". When I went there, just stayed for a while as the swell was getting me to the deep sea.
