Stage 3: Overnight stay in Roses or Empuriabrava

Stay overnight in Empuriabrava

For stage 3, there are two different places to stay: On the one hand, the harbour town of Roses with 20,000 inhabitants and up to 100,000 overnight guests in the high season, and on the other hand, the retort town of Empuriabrava, which is criss-crossed by artificial canals and completely geared towards tourism, which is also the starting point for our stage 4.

No matter what you decide in the end, both places are clearly lacking in charm compared to Cadaqués (the finish of stage 2).

In Empuriabrava, we can recommend the 3-star aparthotel Xon's Platja due to its low prices . Although this is a bed castle visible from afar, its location on the southern edge of Empuriabrava is ideal for the start of the following stage 4. In addition, hikers probably appreciate the presence of a large balcony - it offers a good opportunity to dry the wet hiking clothes.

Somewhat nicer but considerably more expensive is the 4-star Hotel Port Salins, also in Empuriabrava..

Stay overnight in Roses

In Roses, the 3-star Hotel Prestige Mar y Sol, among others, is recommendableHere, the hotel's location directly on the beach is particularly impressive.
