family vacation is very diverse. Therefore, we will focus the route from three main points of Spain. If you have rented an apartment in Estartit coming from Madrid, in central Spain, or for tourists coming from Extremadura and western Andalusia, the fastest way is to take the A-2 and then link up with the AP-2 to get to l'Estartit in about 7 hours, although this route includes tolls. Another option is to go only by the A-2.
If you start from Asturias, northern Spain, the best alternative is to take the AP-68 (includes tolls), or AP2. In both paths you will cross about 1,010 kilometers. But if you start the trip to Estartit from south of the town, such as Murcia, the AP-7 will be your road. You will reach your destination (tolls included), after about 7 hours.
