Diversity and peace give a unique identity to the coast of Terres de l’Ebre: the northern coast has lots of isolated coves which are hidden by rocky red-coloured cliffs and surrounded by pine groves. In the south there are long, peaceful beaches of fine sand with clear, shallow water.
Between the rocks and coves of L'Ametlla and El Perelló, old footpaths follow the uneven coastline which is mostly covered in bushes, so although it is very arid it has a gentle beauty. Plains surround the fishing villages where people are used to the sound of boats gently rocking in the water. Looking out across the water from L'Ampolla you can make out the lighthouse on the horizon between the water, sky and fine sand of the Delta at Fangar Point. With a clear blue sky, the delta plain instills solitude. Between desert-like mirages, low sand dunes and the wet, greenness of spring rice fields, the sandy beaches of Amposta, Sant Jaume and Deltebre coexist with the more typical areas of the National Park. When Alfacs Bay is closed in, the salty air of Trabucador beach makes you anticipate the “fishing village feel” of Sant Carles de la Ràpita with its white houses, but more than anything with the food served in its restaurants. A little further to the south between smooth pebbly beaches, is the fishing village of Les Cases d’Alcanar with its dazzling white houses and splashes of pink geraniums decorating the windows. Here, you can be captivated by the image of some old women talking quietly whilst sitting on their old wicker chairs in the streets.
