Surroundings: At the beginning the tour takes us through fruit plantations and agricultural fields, passing by several „Masias“ typically built in stone. Following a dirt road at the western end of L'Escala we find pine forests to the left and the plain of L`Estany with extensive rice fields on the right side. We ride over a hill along small side roads to Cala Montgó. The beautiful bay with a sandy beach invites to have (bath) break. On the way back we can see the bay of Roses, following the coastline through l'Escala and the excavations of Empúries towards St. Martí d`Empúries. From there we take the bike path and dirt road next to the beach until we reach Aquarius.
Remarkable: Important architectural ensemble built on a Roman settlement "Cinc Claus", bay and promenade of the Escala, Greco-Roman ruins of Empúries and romantic medieval village of St. Martí d'Empuries.
Don`t forget: swimsuit + shoes, sun protection, sufficient drinks (water, isotonic drinks), energy food, comfortable clothing, spare clothing (when sweating or freezing), rainwear if needed and BEING IN A GOOD MOOD ;-)
