Bay of Roses, one of the most beautiful in the world

The Bay of Roses has joined the Most Beautiful Bays in the World Club, a distinction which carries with it the endorsement of UNESCO. The club, which currently only includes thirty bays, recognises the value provided by the tourism, landscape, and culture in the region formed by the municipalities of L’Escala, Sant Pere Pescador, Castelló d’Empúries, and Roses.
The decision was made in a meeting last May 2011 in Toubakouta (Senegal), where the Bay of Roses received the highest number of points possible.
A member of the Tourism Council of L’Escala, Maribel Calderon, was one of the representatives who defended the Bay of Roses’ candidacy in Senegal. Ms. Calderon noted “the significant promotional value which comes with receiving a distinction such as this, as only a single bay is selected per country and sea, which means that they have chosen us from the entire Mediterranean coast of the Iberian Peninsula”.
