    Cala Murtra offers a secluded getaway from the crowds of the urban beaches of Roses. Located around 7 km southeast of central Roses, you can easily get to the horseshoe bay by travelling on Cala Montjoi road. The remote beach lacks modern conveniences such as bars and restaurants, so it’s a good idea to pack a picnic before heading there.

    Cala Murtra’s surface is mostly pebbly, unlike some of the sandier beaches of Roses. Its aquamarine waters offer an excellent opportunity for swimming, while rugged cliffs and pine forests surrounding the cove result in a secluded atmosphere.
