By the way of introduction, I will explain a little bit about The Delta del Ebre. This incredible location gives us the opportunity to enjoy a special and unique type of nature. It is located in the mouth of the Ebro river, in the area of Tarragona, the south of Catalonia.
It is well known that this landscape has a strong personality due to the extensive rice fields, their lakes surrounded by numerous rushes, and especially their large and deserted beach.
Natural park of Delta del Ebre
Our first stop is the natural park, the largest wet zone of Catalonia, that posses a surface of 320 km. It is one of the few places where you can find flamingos in the summer season.
Los Vascos restaurant
At noon we decided to move to the north and to look for a good restaurant. Then, we found a good one with positive reviews called Los Vascos. It is located next to Deltebre village. It was a really good option due to it being located at the beginning of a really nice excursion that we wanted to go on after have lunch.
This restaurant is widely known for its seafood and Paella. They have a wide variety of dishes on the menu, such as squid, prawns, scallops, and mussels.
As a starter we choose mussels. From my point of view the seafood was delicious, they were covered of a typical catalan sauce called “romesco”. Then, as a main course we choose Fideuá, a typical spanish dish. Fideuá is similar to paella and is made with seafood as well. But instead of rice it is cooked with noodles.
After lunch, we decided to start the trekking. The starting point, as I said, was close to the restaurant. We walked along massive sand dunes for around 2 and a half hours until we reached the other side of the beach. Finally, at the end, we found an amazing lighthouse.
In my opinion, the trekking itself was a little bit difficult because of the heat but it was worth it. I feel strongly that people should go to Delta del Ebre, it is an essential destination. On account of its golden sand and calm waters, it is a very special beach.
After that, we moved to Trabucador beach. It’s undoubtedly the most famous beach in the whole area. A very long beach, surrounded by water on both sides. Moreover it is a spectacular place to practice water sports and enjoy the charm of the beach without many people around.
In my opinion, the best time to go is around 8 p.m due to the spectacular panoramic view of the sunset.
In conclusion, Delta del Ebre is a nice place to get lost in the moment and enjoy the relaxation that is sometimes diffucult to find. In addition, I should tell you the importance of bringing mosquito repellent with you, since the area is full of insects.
