The most beautiful coves in Catalonia

Summer is just around the corner and the arrival of good weather has led to the first baths of the year. The temperatures have skyrocketed and now there is no excuse for not wearing your swimsuit and enjoying a day at the beach properly.

For those looking for a plus of beauty and tranquility, the beaches are not always the best option. They prefer to go to little-known coves to disconnect, surround themselves with nature and enjoy the relaxing sound of the waves. If you are in Catalonia and you want to experience that pleasant sensation, I recommend you visit the coves that I mention in this article, which in my humble opinion are the most beautiful in its privileged geography.

Cala d’Aiguablava (Begur, Girona)

In a small fishing village as beautiful as Begur is the d’Aiguablava. It is barely 70 meters long and that makes it difficult to place the towel on certain days in July and August. Those who visit it enjoy its crystal clear waters and fine white sand, something that is not usually very common on the Costa Brava. It has minimal services and offers good views of Cape Begur, which is exhibited in the shape of a cliff.

Cala Pola (Tossa de Mar, Girona)

Tossa de Mar Castle is not the only thing that will make you fall in love with this town in the province of Girona. You will also feel attraction to Cala Pola, which in its 70 meters in length delights us with a visual spectacle in charge of nature , which is the main protagonist of this cove located right next to a campsite that bears the same name, despite which is by no means reserved exclusively for the clients of said campsite.

Cala Tavallera (Port de la Selva, Girona)

In the direction of France, in the Port de la Selva, Cala Tavallera can be defined as a place of difficult access, which is why it is not usually crowded despite being only a few meters long. It is a wild cove that can be reached by boat or on foot through the GR11 route, which is a Long Distance Trail that crosses the entire Pyrenees for about 800 kilometers.

Cala Foradada (Palam贸s, Girona)

In Palam贸s they are not only happy with their gastronomy. They also get their chests when they talk about Cala Foradada (Cala Agujereada), a natural refuge that owes its name to the perforated rock that has created a kind of natural bridge that can be seen from the water, passing just below. It can be reached from Castell beach or by boat.

Cala Crancs (Salou, Tarragona)

On the Costa Dorada there are also beautiful coves. One of them is Cala Crancs, where the fine golden sand mixes with the pine trees that surround the place. It would be a fantastic beach to relax if it weren’t for the large number of people who decide to visit it in the months of July and August.

Cala Maria (L’Ampolla, Tarragona)

I do not move from the Costa Dorada to tell you about Cala Maria, a quite isolated cove that is not only guarded by pine trees, but also has cliffs of great beauty. It is accessed through the GR92 route or by boat.

Cala Roca Grossa (Calella – Sant Pol de Mar, Barcelona)

Lastly, and no less beautiful than the previous ones, Cala Roca Grossa is the closest option for those who live in Barcelona. It is between Calella and Sant Pol de Mar, in the Maresme, and it could be said that it is divided into two parts because of a large rock located a few meters from the shore.
