Legends say, that the Sirens lured the ancient Seafarers to their doom among the dark coastal rocks with their sweet songs...

With the Sirens gone now, we invite you to join us in exploring the crystal waters around our most prominent landmark, the Mont Guardí 'Cap de Tossa' peninsula...home of Vila Vella, the original Old Town medieval village of Tossa perched on top...for a fun and unique challenge.
