The Medas Islands

This archipelago is the key underwater flora and fauna reserve of the western Mediterranean. At 900 metres from the coast, this small archipelago formed by seven islets with underwater caves and rocky bottoms represents a paradise for divers. The area is set up for controlled dives and initiations for beginners. In addition, boats with underwater views leave from the town of Estartit to tour the islands and the coast of Montgrí.
