Time Out says

A long beach with dunes, a place where kitesurf is allowed and the winds make for good sailing and surfing

Another immense beach, this time one that is more than 6km long, where you can find a peaceful corner among the dunes even in the middle of summer. Close to the Empordà wetlands, extending across a plain that's formed by the estuary of the Fluvià river, it's part of the Bay of Roses, but the fact that it's a long way from the most densely populated urban centres makes this into one of the least crowded beaches in this part of the Costa Brava. It's one of the few places on the Costa Brava where the practice of kitesurf is expressly authorised and regulated. It's also a perfect spot for other sports such as sailing and windsurfing, as it's extraordinarily open to the wind. However, this paradise for those who like to fly on the waves can, on occasion, be a more dangerous place for those who want to swim, as there are strong currents - always be prudent. Bear in mind, though, that it does have a good number of lifeguards, so that should help put your mind at rest.
