Nàutic Vell is the town’s old marina and is at the end of the seafront promenade below the emblematic Salvament building, next to the fishing port and the fish market. It is a pleasant, sheltered corner at the end of the beach where the small fishing boats are pulled up. It has three jetties with a 5-metre depth at the end but this gets shallower fast, and at the land end there is a restaurant with a terrace and the clubhouse. Nearby there are plenty of leisure options, including the coastal path, or the greenway cycling path to Girona, the chapel of Sant Elm, the monastery, the Espai Carmen Thyssen, La Constància casino with its neo-Mudejar façade and the excellent municipal market.
The Salvament building is an old nineteenth-century lifeboat station, the town’s maritime history museum’s secondary venue.
