Our opinion on the Playa Grande - Nova - Rastrell - Salatar

Adresse of the Playa Grande - Nova - Rastrell - Salatar : Av de Rhode 17480 Roses

The main beach of Roses is divided into three areas : Nova beach, Rastrell beach and Salatar beach, each separated by a gully. To them three, they accumulate 1790 meters from the mouth of the Riera Grinjolers to the beach of Santa Margarita. Typical of the Costa Brava as we imagine it, beaches are very large and crowded, but without much originality. Their fine sand and shallow waters are ideal for swimming with family and for water sports. For the extra touch of personality, i twill be necessary to look rather torwards the east, on the side of Canyelles Petites, with a flight of seagulls.

Since 1994, the Blue Flag of Europe is regularly attributed to them because of the quality of its waters and sand, and the quality of the services offered.

Note that the supervision of bathers and boat sis not only from earth but also from the sea, along the coast.

Note also the presence of a windsurf school, a mini golf and a playground for children.

For those who love the well equipped beaches but not surprising ones.

Main beach of Roses in Spain

Only the vastness of the beach is remarkable.

Promenade on the seafront of Roses

The palms give fortunately to the walk a small vegetal touch that does not necessarily offer the rather urbanized surroundings.

Sand sculpture in Spain

Art, even ephemeral, and always present in the Catalan soul.

Beach of Roses and view on Empuriabrava

In the direction of Santa Margarita, and especially Empuriabrava, the horizon becomes concrete. But not so much in this back beach (on the right) where it remains architecturally reasonable.

Large beach in Roses

The view is nicer to the east where the relief is softer to the eye. The width of the beach, depending on the location, vary from single to triple.

Advantage of this beach : the shallow water and the lack of dangerous currents that make it a rather safe place for swimming.

Pedalo in Roses

The playful pedalos are legions here. As are sea scooters.
