A real closed-water beach for anyone who panics in the sea after seeing 'Jaws'

This is a brilliant option if you actually do like the beach but you've not been a fan of open waters ever since you watched 'Jaws'. The reservoir ('pantà') of Darnius-Boadella (the official name now following years of campaigning by the town of Darnius; in actual fact, the reservoir doesn't occupy a single square metre of the municipality of Boadella, which is more to the south) could well be known as the beach on the border with France. On the grounds of Mas Corbet, you'll find the Club Nàtuic Darnius, which has various amenities suitable to a freshwater beach. As well as a large car park, bar and restaurant, you'll find facilities for various activities such as waterskiing, canoeing and sailing. It's all a timid attempt to take advantage of an installation that is unjustly unknown to most, and where the majority of visitors are foreigners.
