Top 6 best beaches in Roses

1. Rastrell Beach

The best views from the hotels in Roses are from those overlooking Rastrell beach, which is why our hotel has the most spectacular views. Just step out of the hotel and you’re on the beach.

Rastrell is the largest beach in Roses and also the most popular. And it’s no wonder, because with 800 metres of golden sand, moderate waves and shallow, transparent waters, it is the ideal beach for water sports such as surfing and scuba diving, and for a day out with the family.

This beach in Roses has all kinds of services and facilities including a children’s play area, restaurants, bars with terraces and small shops where you can buy souvenirs of your holiday. Of course, there’s also a beach umbrella and sun lounger rental service, access for people with reduced mobility, an unattended car park and a bus stop.

Next to the beach, there’s a beautiful promenade, surrounded by palm trees, where you can enjoy a stroll or a cycle. A visit to Rastrell beach is an opportunity to spend a wonderful day with all the comforts, with nothing to worry about other than admiring the sea, and all just a stone’s throw from your room.

2. Nova Beach

Nova beach is also known as La Perola. It is a small beach with all kinds of services, including disabled access, showers and foot washing stations, public toilets, parasols and sun loungers for hire and a children’s play area, all with the security provided by the lifeguard service. It is located alongside the seafront promenade and can be reached from the hotel in less than ten minutes by car. If you prefer to walk, it takes about thirty minutes from the hotel, following the curve of the coast.

With almost 500 metres of fine, golden sand and shallow, clear waters, this beach will delight families and especially the little ones. Nova Beach is the perfect place to spend the day.

3. Salatar Beach

Salatar Beach is one of the most popular beaches in the Alt Empordà region, and for good reason: it’s about 500 metres long and 35 metres wide, with fine sand and shallow, clear waters. It provides a wide range of services and attracts tourists from all over the world. The best way to visit this beach from our hotel is on foot, and it takes less than ten minutes to get there.

Along the promenade, you will find a wide range of shopping, leisure, dining and accommodation options. Salatar Beach also has access for people with reduced mobility, public toilets, sunshades and sun loungers, as well as lifeguard services.

4. Almadrava Beach

Almadrava Beach, also known as Canyelles Grosses, is one of the best-loved beaches in Roses. It is a sheltered, semi-urban beach located about seven kilometres from the hotel, but it is easily accessible by car and there is a car park nearby. To get there from the hotel, you simply follow the road that runs along the coast from the centre of Roses. 

Almadrava Beach has the same idyllic characteristics as the other beaches in Roses, and the fine sand and deep blue waters make it particularly attractive for families. This is also the reason why it has been awarded the Environmental Quality Certificate. It is 500 metres long and around 25 metres wide. Protected from the Tramontana wind, it guarantees a pleasant environment and offers all the services you could wish for. There is no reason not to visit this beach!

5. Cala Murtra

If you’re looking for somewhere a little more secluded, go to Cala Murtra. It is an unspoilt beach around 10 kilometres from the city of Roses. It is difficult to reach, as you have to take a winding road from the hotel and then a 15-minute walk, but it is well worth the effort and the views from the path are exceptionally beautiful. The beach is less than 200 metres long and is not fine sand, but if you arrive early, you might be lucky enough to have it all to yourself. This is definitely a slice of paradise in Roses.

6. Cala Montjoi

Another must-see for its exotic beauty is Cala Montjoi. It has almost 300 metres of coarse sand and beautiful views of Cap Norfeu. If you like snorkelling, this is the cove for you! There is also a bar and restaurant. Scuba diving is a unique experience here, because at the bottom, a few metres down, after a steep drop in the sea floor, you will find the shipwreck of the Phedon, sunk in 1934.

To get to Cala Montjoi from the hotel you will have to drive, as it is about 17 kilometres away and takes about half an hour.
