There are villages like Cadaques that have incredible charm, a perfect blend of bewitching natural landscapes and preserved authenticity despite a certain popularity.

This famous little village, located on the Costa Brava, not far from Girona is an unmissable site that will seduce you.



Our favorite activity: Day trip to the Salvador Dali Museum, Figueres and Cadaques in Barcelona

A small fishing village

This small fishing village is a true haven of tranquillity.

Sheltered, hidden behind the mountains, he gazes at the horizon facing the sea.

Its location makes it difficult to access (by sea or the only road) but this is also what has helped to preserve its naturalness.

Even if today the bay of Cadaques is a recognized tourist destination, a sort of Catalan St Tropez, the site is still just as pleasant.

You will discover it for yourself by strolling through its narrow streets lined with white flowered houses which will lead you to the bell tower of the Santa Maria church or the San Sebastia chapel.

The port and the beach also offer their share of seduction with these boats stranded on the pebbles that seem to have been frozen in time.

Cadaqués: the refuge of Dali

It is impossible to talk about Cadaqués without mentioning Salvador Dali.

His soul still hovers there, whether in the hearts of the village elders, in the many art galleries or in the minds of visitors wishing to understand the singular universe of the master.

No wonder you will say when you know that it is here and more precisely in Port Lligat that Dali and his wife Gala have acquired several small fishermen's houses to make a spooky dwelling surmounted by huge ostrich eggs .


You can imagine that all the greatest artists of the moment (friends of Dali) passed through here, Ernst, Picasso, Breton...a veritable surrealist breeding ground.


With such a setting, you would have to be difficult not to indulge in creation. This is how Cadaques became known to the whole world. Today you can visit this house museum which constitutes a different approach from that of the Dali museum in Figueres.


The surroundings of Cadaqués

Cadaques is located in the Alt Emporda region, a preserved natural region which offers magnificent wild landscapes.

The many small ports located at the end of the Cap de Creus, compete in charm to offer travelers a simple spectacle and an atmosphere in which it is good to bathe.

So do not hesitate to go around the region, to stroll in the many bays to discover, who knows, maybe inspiration...


From Port Bout to Port Selva, there is everything to discover and so much to receive, so don't hesitate any longer. If you feel like it, you can even go on a hike from Corlliour to Cadaquès, a route through resplendent nature… Have a good trip!!
