Nens Club Super 3

At the Nautilus Adventure we are keen for all children to be able to enjoy an underwaterlogo-sello-club-super3 trip, to have fun and learn about new aspects of the Costa Brava marine life and to discover new species of fish, birds and plants that live on the Montgrí Massif coast.

This is why their ticket for Nautilus is free with the Super 3 Pass. We want this adventure to be accessible to all children who want to experience it, which is why we offer this as a permanent promotion so that no-one is left ashore.

Discover the marine fauna of the Medes Islands

Fauna marina Illes Medes

The unique ecosystem of the Medes Islands, combined with its protected status as a Marine Reserve and Nature Park and the fact that it is forbidden to remove any type of resource from the area, has meant that a very varied, native flora and fauna has developed, particularly under the sea.

From the Nautilus boats we can see shoals of fish of many species that are rare in other places:  grouper, zebra seabream, sea bass, scorpionfish, common stingray and red mullet rule the sea in this part of the Costa Brava. There are also other very special, protected species such as red coral, starfish, sponges and sea urchins.

Here at Nautilus we would like to give you a challenge: Spot all the fishes and other marine animals that live among the rocks of the Medes Islands! Just because you are discovering and learning something new every day doesn’t mean it can’t be fun. Enjoy your undersea adventure while counting all the species you have seen on your trip.

The Costa Brava and particularly Estartit are famous for their peaceful beaches and coves where you can enjoy incomparable landscapes. From the stretches of fine sand where you can relax and sunbathe, to the spectacular cliffs and coves all along the Montgrí Coast, here at Nautilus, we recommend the best beaches so you can round off your day with a refreshing dip.

  • Playa Grande in Estartit: a l3.5km long beach with fine sand, which is extending northwards every day because of the river which is constantly depositing sand and forming a breakwater. A peaceful place where you can sunbathe and relax, or scuba dive along the Costa Brava to discover the spectacular underwater world.
  • Cala Montgó: this cove is some 600m long and is the most important geographical feature on the Montgrí Coast. Located near l’Escala, it has one area for swimming and another area for watersports such as kayaking, windsurfing, paddle boat and scuba diving. Perfect for enjoying the Costa Brava with more peace and privacy!
  • Cala Calella: a small rocky cover surrounded by vegetation and cliffs that makes it a privileged place from which to enjoy the view of the Medes Islands. Only 30 minutes on foot from Estartit, it is a perfect mini-adventure for more adventurous types.

And … a bonus beach!

  • Cala Pedrosa: this small hidden cove, surrounded by pine trees and rocks, is just one hour away from Estartit. Scarcely 100m out to sea is Pedrosa Island, which you can swim to for some spectacular views of the Costa Brava.

Have fun on Estartit’s beaches!
