The municipality of Portbou is located at the eastern end of the Albera mountain range, in a very rugged terrain just before the border with France.
This picturesque village on the Costa Brava grew and developed in parallel with its international railway station, inaugurated at the end of the 19th century, which gives it a marked frontier character.
One of the main points of interest in the town is the neogothic Santa Maria church, from where you can enjoy a magnificent panoramic view of the bay. From Portbou you can also enjoy an interesting range of coves and beaches where you can spend a pleasant day bathing and sunbathing, or practising water sports. Among all of them, we can highlight el Claper cove or Les Tres Platgetes.
Sailing enthusiasts can also enjoy the marina, which opened in 2002 and is located in the south of the bay. It has a capacity of 297 moorings.
