The last time we were here that was 30 years ago so it was interesting to see it again. There were changes but not su much as we expected.

L'estartit is a fantastic place. The big bonus is its enormous free car park next to the huge beach and town centre.
The absence of broken car window glass on the car park testifies that few cars are broken into and points to the high calibre of visitors who frequent this resort; many returning year after year.
Good quality & reasonably priced accommodation, restaurants, bars & shops are plentiful.
Leisure/sporting facilities include: diving at the nearby Medes Islands; jet-ski hire; bicycle hire (to the south the land is flat); horse riding; hiking in the hills behind the town; boat trips or self-drive power boat/sail boat hire to the natural marine park around the islands or into the many coves situated to the north (also accessible over the hills on foot); rock climbing can be undertaken on the Roca Maura behind the town; there is even a nearby airfield for motorised hang-gliding & ultra-light aircraft.
Their is a huge & very wide fine sand beach, where if the curse of Covid is still with us you can easily isolate. The 2 beaches are safe & sheltered by the one mile distant Medes Islands & close to the town. Children & non swimmers can walk out a long way into the sea without losing their depth. There is also a naturist beach & a river mouth, if you walk far enough.
The road stops at l'Estartit so is gifted with slow moving traffic.
Barcelona is easily accessible by good public transport (bus & train)
The only negative is that the local ajuntament (council) fail to act on the suggestions of their tourists.
On the main Levintana harbour jetty, outwards from the Can Pau bar, there should be a ramp leading onto the beach. I have seen many mothers with puch-chairs & elderly people struggle over the rocks between the jetty & beach. I would like to once again inform the ajuntament (council) that there is potential for an accident here, together with possible litigation under health & safety norms.
I'm sorry that I cannot write this in Catelan but I have already informed you via the tourist office & an official form regarding this potential danger.

Absolutely loved it. It is calmer and flatter than the surrounding beaches. Costa Brava is known for it's beautiful rocky beaches which are absolutely spectacular but not that practical for toddlers. L'Estartit is the perfect beach for small children in the Costa Brava area, still close enough to visit the others. The sand is so nice and soft. There are also nearby playgrounds, and a restaurant/bar on the beach with nice abuelas.

Never been so far north in Spain, wow what a beautiful area would recommend to anyone wanting a relaxed time away in stunning surroundings. Great place for beach and country lovers alike. A must is trip into Girona only 50 minutes on the local bus. Will definitely be going back.

3 1/2 stars. Not with friends but with my mom and sister. Big beach, nice sand, near market, not too crowded. That water is not as clear as at Llafranc, but no different to Pals. It was super windy one day, but not sure if that was a one-off or typical for August.

Really nice beach with huge parking right by the sand. Beach has all the services from bars to rentals and all you need at the beach. The sand is great, the water gets deeper very gradually so great for kids.
