One of the Baix Empordà's greatest ecological treasures is the Medes islands, a tiny archipelago located just off the coast of L'Estartit formed by seven islets characterised by the lavishness of its marine ecosystem. The proximity of the coast and of the mouth of the Ter river allow the Medes to nurture their unique flora and fauna with abundant amounts of organic matter. The Medes islands are a must visit for scuba divers, who can practise the sport in a regulated setting.
The tourism office in L'Estartit will give you all the necessary information to go the Illes Medes.
