Things to Do in Roses

Almadrava Beach
Almadrava Beach, or Canyelles Grosses, is quite literally certified as one of the best beaches in Roses. The beautiful sandy stretch is sheltered from the blustery northern winds and is well equipped with amenities – making it an ideal place to while the day away. At just five kilometres outside the centre, it’s also easily reached by car or bus.
Canyelles Petites Beach
Canyelles Petites lies just a few kilometres outside Roses. The beach has been given Blue Flag status, which is renewed year after year in testament to its transparent turquoise waters and pristine sands. Backed by pine-stippled hillside, the stretch is both picturesque and nicely shielded from the wind – perfect for a lazy afternoon’s sunbathing.
Day trip to Cadaqués
Despite being just half an hour’s drive from Roses, most people choose the ferry when heading to Cadaqués. The unassuming little town arcs around the ocean, a vision of brightest white, dotted with terracotta rooftops. It’s easy to lose hours just wandering the charming streets here, but don’t forget to pay a visit to the Portlligat Museum-House – the one-time home of surrealist, Salvador Dalí.
Cap de Creus Natural Park
Located at the north-eastern corner of Catalonia, this isolated peninsula is nothing short of spectacular. Cap de Creus Natural Park covers miles of windswept hillsides, craggy coves and tiny, hidden beaches. Sant Pere de Rodes Monastery surveys the landscape from the park’s highest point, while the fishing villages of Cadaqués and Port de la Selva are the perfect setting for seaside strolls.

Very Good
A lovely wide sheltered bay. We enjoyed the boat trip to Cadaques and the Roses Express for exploring the area. The citadel was a fascinating place to visit and gave a good insight into the history of the town.

We have friends who live in Roses, it’s one of our favourite places. It’s easy to get to from UK, without having to fly and we would like to buy a property there ourselves in the future

Booking.com asked travelers...

Why do you recommend Roses for food?

Roses beach is very sheltered especially in autumn weather. Noise free promenade with shade from trees, and showers on beach. Very good reasonably priced restaurants line the beach. One hour away from Gerona airport we were swimming in Roses beach just before our flight back home in late October.

Just walk to the entrance of the hotel and you will see a footpath to your right. Take it and keep walking up the hill. Lovely views of olive terraces, ancient houses, sea and mountains.
