CATALONIA COSTA DAURADA: L'AMETLLA DE MAR

The 16 km long coastline of the beautiful village of l'Ametlla de Mar is one of the most charming and unspoiled landscapes of Costa Daurada and the Mediterranean coast.

The profile is abrupt, with beautiful cliffs giving way to a series of beaches and coves, each one with different characteristics surrounded by Mediterranean vegetation.
