To see Swimming in Rosas

I never knew the existence of a place named Rosas until the day when, In Croatia,  I met a group of Catalans who lived there.

When, in the next week, Fernanda decided to abandon Gavà and to go elsewhere, Rosas was, naturally the first (and last) idea.

We spent there 4 days in a good beach, but never met our Catalan friends.



The city has a long coastline, with several beaches. The local Spanish friend we met in Croatia, Irena, was expected to lead us to one of the better beaches.

The meeting failed, and we used the beach close to the hotel – St. Margarita.

​I don’t know if it is one of Irena’s good or bad beach, but I liked it: not too crowded, warm water, soft sand… and dancing at night in a bar under a thunderstorm.

​The unfinished tower


Leaving town I passed a small town with a nice square, where old walls surrounded a church with an unfinished tower.

​I couldn’t retain the place’s name and browsing internet didn’t add much – Ulla… I presume.

I recommend Empordà – The best meal


We tried a few restaurants in our short stay, but only this one deserved to be remembered. 

Facing Santa Margarida beach, with a good esplanade, served us a good grill, at a fair price.

I recommend Sant-Marc – Good hotel

Prestige Sant-Marc hotel
Prestige Sant-Marc hotel

A reasonable hotel, with friendly service, clean room, a good breakfast, with only two reserves: though being really “close to the beach”, it is not so close as the photos in internet suggested, and… it has no parking.
