The Coast

One of the main features of L’Ampolla is the variety of the beaches, unique on the Catalan coast, ranging from sandy beaches with calm shallow waters, ideal for children, to pebbly or sandy beaches surrounded by red-hued cliffs.

Lagoons are one of the main features of the ecosystems found in the Ebro Delta. They consist of coastal pools of water running directly to the sea and surrounded by paddy fields. The productive life cycle of rice is the main reason for the changes in the salinity of the land, which in turn has been to a large extent the reason for the wide diversity of vegetation, fish and birds inhabiting the area.

The Mountain

The Serra del Montsià stretches in a NE – SW direction and lies south of the Ebre river, its northern limit. Relatively high and located right by the Mediterranean coastline, it is an important landmark in the region. Its southern limit is marked by the Sénia River. The silhouette of the mountain range looks like a dragon, especially seen from the N. The view of the Ebro delta from La Foradada 698 m and the nice scenery merit the effort.
