Darnius Boadella Reservoir. 
Today we would like to tell you about another wonderful place where you can spend time pleasantly on a weekend.
This is the Darnius Boadella reservoir, located in the foothills of the Pyrenees densely covered with green forests.
The reservoir was created in 1969 after the construction of a dam on the Muga River, which flows into the Mediterranean Sea in the city of Empuriabrava.
Two settlements fought for a long time for the honor of giving its name to the reservoir – Darnius and Boadella; The Generalit of Catalonia, by a wise decision, put an end to this dispute, and now the reservoir bears the names of these two cities.
On the reservoir you can swim, fish, sail, paddle, and even take a motor boat. And most importantly – incredible landscapes. That is why foreign tourists can often be found at the reservoir – most often they are Swiss, Germans and Belgians.
We invite you to take a virtual trip to the Darnius Boadella reservoir.

And we go to the water sports Club Nàutic Darnius.

The water club has a playground, a small restaurant and a picnic area. And the most important thing is easy access to water.

Despite the thunderclouds, the most daring vacationers enjoy paddle boarding on the surface of the lake.

The shore of the reservoir is rocky and sandy, and the water in the reservoir is clean and transparent.

The water level can change depending on the amount of rain, so trees and shrubs are often found along the coast, growing directly from the water.

After swimming, we go for a walk along the shore of the lake. No comments, enjoy the views!
