Bay of Roses
Roses is as beautiful as its name itself. This former Greek colony is located in a lovely bay in the middle of a breathtaking nature site.
Apart from crystal water and white sand beaches, the city of Roses holds megalithic tombs, fortresses dating from the 16th century and other picturesque attractions.
But have you ever wondered whether sailing the Bay of Roses is worth it?
The Advice for the sailor section contains information about the most interesting places to visit when sailing. Our aim is to shed a light on the decision.
Let’s start our route
Cap de Creus Nature Park is full of delightful coves that are completely worth sailing to wholly enjoy the Bay of Roses. We suggest visiting Punta Falconera as well.
Once you pass through Cap Trencat, it is absolutely recommendable to stop at Cala Murtra, where you can have wonderful views of the bottom of the sea.
Let’s continue our voyage. At Cala Montjoi you will find El Bulli, Ferrán Adriá’s restaurant, considered one of the best chefs in the world and winner of several Michelin starts.
Following Cala Montjoi, you will arrive to Cap Norfeu, where there is a peculiar rock called El gato. That is Spanish for “the cat”, so it won’t be necessary to tell you what it looks like, right? Cap Norfeu is considered a Strict Nature Reserve, which is the highest category for protected areas.
Cap de Creus National Park deserves a mention, as you will find an astonishing sharp rock promontory that rises 672 metres above the Mediterranean Sea. The result of this is a tiny peninsula full of abysses sculpted by the sea.
