Adresse of the Riells Beach : Carrer Cami del Palau 17130 L'Escala

Riells beach of Escala is a long beach, urbanized, not always with good taste, but which has a lot of seasonal rental opportunities, shops, bars and restaurants. It also has a playground for children and is accessible to disabled. North oriented, it is sometimes prone to tramontane, but has taken adavantage of this inconvinient. In fact, the yacht club is situated on the right, near the port of Clota, is the meeting point of all kinds of sailors : windsurfers, skateboarders, diverters, keelboats or of catamarans.

If you search a little, along the beach, you will find the statues of the Little Prince (who gives his name to a parallel street) of Saint Exupery, as one of the fox of the tale.

On the right, the port gives a nice activity to the beach and countless mini cruises or excursiosns to Meds islands, south or the Cape Creus, north.
