About La Fosca

For an exhilarating watersports programme on the Med, La Fosca watersports centre is a great choice for your secondary school trip.

Located on the beautiful Costa Brava, PGL has its own section at Camping Kings, an international campsite with some great facilities.

There are three fantastic beaches on which to enjoy action-packed programmes of watersports on the sea; including sailing, snorkeling, windsurfing and canoeing.

There’ll be time to take your students for a day’s excursion, and there are some great local places of interest nearby. The ancient walled city of Girona and the Dali museum at Figueres are popular with many secondary school groups and add an extra dimension to the learning experience.

Your accommodation is in chalets or tented villages – all with communal spaces, picnic benches and open spaces to relax in at the end of a busy day.

Food

La Fosca offers a fantastic range of delicious food choices for you and your group to enjoy. We source fresh, regional produce whenever we can and you’ll always find a cultural flavour to our menus. Our aim is to ensure your group leaves feeling full and happy. If a member of your group has a specific dietary requirement or is particularly choosy about what they eat, we will always prepare something suitable. And if they’d like some more to eat, we can offer alternatives and extra food.

Encouraging healthy eating
You’ll always find a good selection of seasonal fresh fruit and vegetables on offer every day. A range of salads is available at lunch and dinner time and fresh fruit is available at every meal.

A continental feel
We like to provide a balance by providing food that is familiar but also by giving you an opportunity to try food that has a distinctly Spanish flavour too.

Enjoy your food
We strive to provide quality meals wherever you are eating them – as well as a welcoming and friendly atmosphere. So, whether you are in the surroundings of our clean and pleasant dining rooms or on a Mediterranean beach, enjoy your food with PGL!
