A huge beach with dunes and completely open on all sides and divided by the estuary of the river Ter; it's a changing, solitary landscape

The geography of this part of the Costa Brava gives rise to a series of beaches that seem to be more part of the Atlantic coast than the Girona one. For a couple of kilometres, the pebbles and cliffs give way to white, fine sand and dunes, an area that is divided by the estuary of the river Ter and stretches to the foot of the Montgrí massif and the Illes Medes. 

From north to south (the only way to cross the beaches like that is to do it walking), you'll first come across the Racó beach, which marks the end of the cliffs of Begur; then the beach of Pals, wide, with an extensive horizon and perfect for sports such as sailing and wind-surfing; the beach of Mas Pinell, comfortable and developed; la Gola del Ter, a space that changes with the seasons and also includes a beach for dogs; and, close to L'Estartit, the beach of Riells, which borders the Aiguamolls de l'Empordà wetlands. This river plain is ideal for bike outings from Torroella de Montgrí, and it has to be said that, as a result, the traffic and parking can be pretty tricky in the summer.
