Located on the coast of Girona, Spain, Empuriabrava is the largest residential marina in the world and the sun shines for approximately 300 days a year. The town is completely surrounded by mountains and beautiful coastline with a beautiful wide sandy beach, perfect for sunbathers and those who like all kind of water sports. Over the last few decades the area has developed from a small town to a bustling tourist community. With a range of activities available from skydiving (the town is one of the three best skydiving spots of the world) to learning how to sail, Empuriabrava is a great destination for a unique holiday.
On holiday in Empuriabrava you will be in a region with a mild Mediterranean climate. Summer highs can be tempered slightly by winds from the Pyrenees, but the period from May to October is hot when you compare the Costa Brava to places in northern and central Europe.
Hot and humid summers reach around 30°C on most days - though due to its positioning Empuriabrava receives a cooling sea breeze - and rain is scarce until autumn arrives. Winters are moderate, with temperatures average between 10°C and 15°C – still warm enough to enjoy the full range of outdoor activities that your self-catering holiday has to offer.
