Empuriabrava-Castelló d’Empúries has been awarded the seal of approval as a Sports Tourism Destination by the Catalan Tourist Board for its parachuting and football facilities. These two sports play an important role locally and go back a long time. They are clearly much more than mere sports activities and have become a local economic driver and future resource in the town’s tourist development.
However, sports tradition and local resources go far beyond these two sports. Castelló d’Empúries is a leader in the field of water sports, including cruising sailing, dinghy sailing, deep-sea fishing and jet ski thanks to Empuriabrava’s Marina, with its superb installations, and the magnificent natural facilities provided by our beaches.
