  • Visit the Columbretes Islands, how to go?

    Located just a few miles from the coast of Castellón, visiting the Columbretes Islands is a wonderful experience. It is one of the Natural Parks with the richest marine biodiversity in our country, so to enter them you have to be especially careful.

    You should know that the Columbretes volcanic archipelago is divided into four islands known as Grossa, Ferrera, Foradada and Carallot.
    These are accessible exclusively by boat, normally from the coasts of Burriana, Castellón, Valencia, Oropesa or Benicarló, but excursions are also made from the Balearic Islands.

    Keep in mind that, as it is a protected marine reserve, it is not possible to disembark or anchor in any area, only in those authorized by the maritime authorities. Therefore, discovering the Columbretes Islands by sailboat under the experience of a local skipper will be the best option to explore this little corner of the Mediterranean.

    At Sailwiz we have different options for trips and excursions to the Columbretes Islands by boat so that you can sail without worries and just focus on enjoying this spectacle of nature.
  • Excursion to the Columbretes Islands, what to see and do?

    The Columbretes Islands are a tourist attraction due to the interest posed by the vast biodiversity of their seabed. Being located a few miles from the coast of Castellón, the most common is to take a day trip by boat or if you prefer, extend your stay enjoying the Columbretes more relaxed for a full weekend.

    This place is special for disconnection, since its isolated geographical location causes new species of fauna and flora to emerge. So you will feel all privileged in a small natural paradise. In particular, Isla Grossa , being the largest and the only one inhabited, is the most frequented due to its authorization to anchor.

    Without a doubt, the most attractive activity to do on an excursion to the Columbretes is diving. Diving into the warm waters of the Mediterranean will allow you to discover a seabed full of schools of multicolored fish. Being a protected reserve, fishing is prohibited, so this place has become the refuge of hundreds of marine species. Of course, we must not forget the diving goggles to snorkel, it is also another fantastic option for those who are not so daring to go into the deep sea. Don't miss out on this show!
