Along the Costa Brava there is a succession of fishing villages, beaches of fine sand and coves that delight body and mind. Cap de Creus is a protected natural park in which the horizon has remained virgin and privileged. Located in the north of the Costa Brava, not far from Cadaqués (the seaside town par excellence, known for its natural charm and Dalí's artistic life), the wealth of Cap de Creus is immense. Around this place there are hidden coves, all more incredible than the others.
We share with you the three most incredible coves of Cap de Creus. This stays between us 😉
From north to south…
Cala Culip, the wild one
Cala Culip is the quintessential wild cove. Accessible only on foot after a 30-minute walk from the nearest car park and by boat, Cala Culip is a very privileged location. With a diverse seabed and picturesque rock shapes, the Mediterranean spirit is felt everywhere.
Cala Culip is a very well sheltered cove, except from the north wind. Take a look at the weather forecast before leaving, you already know that the north wind blows here every two days. In addition, we can discover remains of Phoenician, Greek and Roman ships. They loved the cove for its seabed, but were often trapped by the Tramontana.
Cala Guillola, the secret
Cala Guillola is one of those coves from which you never want to weigh anchor. In the sun all day, sheltered from the north wind, rather medium in size and difficult to access: this is the secret cove. Accessible almost only by boat, the calm is absolute. Surrounded by these cliffs typical of the Costa Brava, on which the sun sets gently, the setting is prestigious.
Unlike Cala Culip, Cala Guillola is sheltered from the north wind. Sailors love it, it's a nice quiet stop just before Cadaqués.
Cala Jóncols, the ideal
Cala Jóncols is the ideal cove if you are looking for a mix of atmosphere between tranquility and life on the terrace: enjoy the wild surroundings of the cove without depriving yourself of a good table at the Jóncols hotel restaurant. This establishment is the first hotel on the Costa Brava that has obtained the “biosphère” certificate. For years, the team has worked to provide a quality service and preserve its environment. The turquoise water will take you to discover the seabed. Don't forget your Sublue underwater scooter.
Cala Joncóls is sheltered from all winds, except from the Southeast and Levante. This cove is located in the Cap de Creus natural park. So don't drop anchor. Mooring buoys are available.
