Beaches with charm

The Delta is surrounded by a great variety of beaches: virgin beaches, with blue flag, with lifeguard services, with dunes, nudists, beaches where you can go with pets, where you can fish …

Most of the beaches in this area are sandy, although a few kilometers from the Delta you can find stone beaches, for example in the beaches of L’ampolla and Perello, located in the north; or on the beaches near the town of Alcanar, located in the south.

The beaches of the Delta have several outstanding advantages:

  • They are usually beaches with little crowding.

  • They are beaches where there is ease to park the vehicle.
