All the secrets of Empuriabrava
Thanks to its marina, the airfield and a wide range of leisure activities for all tastes and ages, your holidays in Empuriabrava are sure to be exciting. For example, if you’re feeling brave enough, you can parachute jump from a plane or, if you’re already an expert, try skysurfing with your board at Skydive Empuriabrava.
At Windoor Realfly, both adults and children can enjoy the experience of flying. The wind tunnel is a great choice for a fun evening learning what free-fall feels like. It is also unique in Spain, so you definitely shouldn’t miss the opportunity to try it out.
The natural beauty of the landscape is one of the main attractions of Empuriabrava. Children will have a blast at the Butterfly Park, a tropical forest where butterflies and birds of prey live. Here you can admire the colourful Goura victoria, the largest pigeon in the world, and, if you’re lucky, you’ll hear the curious “barking” of an Asian deer called the Indian muntjac.
If you want to relax on the sand or take a dip in the superb natural surroundings of the Gulf of Roses, book a cheap trip to Empuriabrava.

You can rent the equipment there, so all you have to do is decide on the activity.
Get your boots on and follow the River Muga nature path to really immerse yourself in the natural beauty of the area. Along the river, you’ll find islands and sandy areas where you can observe the local fauna. This route spanning three miles joins Empuriabrava with the historic old town of Castelló d’Empúries, another place that’s well worth a visit.
