Enjoying Breakfast all together

During the mornings, having flat water next to a wide sandy beach, makes ideal conditions for a Stand Up Paddle Excursion. 
During the Breakfast Paddle Excursion we take you paddling towards the beautiful beaches of Sant Marti d' Empuries to have breakfast at the Hostal Empuries. 
The paddle trip takes between 30 and 45 minutes depending if we go straight or choose to catch little waves (if there are) on the way. In the mornings it is completey calm, we enjoy crystal clear water, paddle through little creeks.
During this paddle trip we can see the medival village of Sant Marti D'Empuries, which is a nice place to enjoy some tapas as well. Not to be despised is the spot in front of Sant Marti d'Empuries for wave surfing and stand up paddling. The Mediterranean is well-known as flat, but it happens that we get waves here too. Due to the dyke in front of Sant Marti d’Empuries, waves break very clean and on good days surfers take several hours by car to surf here.
Just before arriving we pass the ancient ruins of Empuries, first greek settlement at the peninsula, which a worth a visit also.
The arrival at the Portixol Beach in front of the Hostal Empuries is stunning.
We leave our boards on the beach and get changed.

The breakfast Buffet in the Hostal Empuries doesn't leave you wishing for anything more: 
Coffee, teas, hot chocolates, all kinds of home-made cakes, croissants, fresh home-made breads, serrano ham, chorizos, cheeses, fresh juices, yoghurts, cereals, fruits , eggs & bacon and more.
