La playa de Rubina en Empuriabrava is one of the most complete of the Empordà

EMPURIABRAVA / CATALONIA / SPAIN: The Town Hall in Castelló d'Empúries has long been looking for a solution to find a balance between tourist use and respect for the environment on Rubina beach in Empuriabrava and this has been well done for a few years. The beach is divided into three zones: a larger one for normal summer operation, a part reserved for the kitesurfers and on one piece you can even carry out your dogs and it is one of the few areas of Alt Empordà where this is allowed. On the other hand, the nature reserve Aiguamolls begins immediately, which has to be preserved and it was necessary to ensure that not everyone enters this zone and unconsciously intervenes in a natural area. This limit should not be strict, but smoothly go over and also not immediately unpleasant eye. So you have created natural barriers and usually everyone is aware that in this area has lost nothing. The Town Hall in Castelló says that the current solution for all sides is optimal and you can have fun on the beach and on the other hand, the nature is protected. The work and projects have been implemented in collaboration with the Ministry of the Environment and to provide the greatest possible service to visitors, they have integrated parking zones, installed clear ...

Empuriabrava wants to build on family tourism

EMPURIABRAVA / CATALONIA / SPAIN: One of the top objectives of the Town Hall in Castelló d'Empúries for years has been to transform Empuriabrava and make it a haven of family tourism - which has also been partly successful. And you want to keep working to get the right qualifications.

In order to advance these goals, not only has the beach become a jewel, but also fields for beach volleyball, basketball and beach football.

To preserve the seal of family tourism, for example, the restaurants have child seats and the hotels have extra beds for the little ones. In addition to the service on the beach, the Town Hall wants to expand the bicycle tourism - which is currently being sampled as part of International Mobility Week - and here within the Aiguamolls Nature Reserve. Culture is already offered in the old center of Castelló d'Empúries with its historic buildings and museums. And the nightlife? This was traditionally tailored to Empuriabrava and of course still exists today - but not as excessive as it was a few years ago. And this is how it should stay: sustainable, but not quite as wild and with limited supply.


Roses wants more big and smaller cruise ships

ROSES / CATALONIA / SPAIN: Roses has obviously licked blood in recent years with the arrival of the big cruise ships. In any case, we are looking for ways to allow the passengers of the large ships a more comfortable exit and actually there is a very simple possibility for this: the extension of the mole. This year some of the huge cruisers anchored off Roses and some of the passengers visited the place.

It would be much easier to win the market for the somewhat shorter cruise ships - 70 - 80 meters long - which in part has already been achieved. Contacts have been made at trade fairs and the future will tell if the shipping companies are interested in Roses. In any case, these ships can easily anchor in the harbor.


Exploring Roses, Alt Emporda

ROSES / CATALONIA / SPAIN: The Tourism Department of the Municipality of Roses offers a number of itineraries where pedestrians and cyclists can explore the beauties of the place. The campaign is aimed not only at tourists, but also at the locals, because not every citizen knows the historical and cultural traces left by the various immigration and settlement waves since antiquity.

It goes on the routes u.a. around Punta Falconera, the Aiguamolls, the fishing port, the route of the olive trees, the circular route along the sea, the citadel or the route to the early dolmens.

Ryanair flights for 10 euros - also from Girona

GIRONA / CATALONIA / SPAIN: Anyone planning to fly within Europe in the next few weeks should check the low-cost Ryanair website as soon as possible, as the company currently offers one million flights with huge discounts starting at 10 euros. And: there are also offers from Girona, so you can - at the moment - fly until mid-October for 10 euros to Paris-Beauvais.

Experts believe that they want to answer all the announced strikes - not only in Girona - and show strength. However, the measure contradicts the arguments of the management of Ryanair, after mucking in the winter months on several flights to Spain, because with flights for 10 euros is unlikely to make a great profit.

But whatever? Just let's see if there are matching offers and if so: strike!
