Adresse of the Portitxol Beach : Passeig Dr. Pi Llussa 17130 L'Escala

To find the beach of Portitxol of l'Escala, follow the direction of the archeologic museum of Catalonia-Empuries. Along the sea promenade lined with umbrella pines, the beach is a gem in a beautiful setting. On the right, hand wooden staircase leads to a nice gazebo above the bay of Roses, the coast of Empuries and the Escala. Going up, we can see the arc of Portitxol, a rather notorious rock formation. This beach of fine sand is planted of straw umbrellas that accentuates its little heavenly side. The nearest parking lot, near the hotel, is paid in summer. A good alternative is to go there by walking, taking the promenade of Empuries. By the bike path, we can reach among the pines the other beach that line this bay of Empuries.
