If we have a preference for spectacular coves, some of the best beaches in Spain are concentrated in Girona. In the north of the Costa Brava, specifically in Cap de Creus, is Cala Culip, with a spectacular sea and geology. In our route through the same area we cannot miss Cala Jugadora, Cala Culleró and Cala Prona. The area of Cap de Creus is an extension of the Pyrenees to the sea, being the easternmost point of the peninsula. A boat route through this area is a must for its beauty.

The vicinity of Tamariu, in Palafrugell, offers a privileged enclave of pines and rocks that reach the sea, with magical coves such as Aigua Xelida.

Cala Pola, belonging to the municipality of Tossa de Mar, is another one of great beauty and calm waters.

Starting from the Varadero of Premià de Mar V de Bravado, we can continue our route heading southwest. On the coast of Sitges, a charismatic and busy municipality on the Catalan coast, the beach of San Sebastià stands out. It is located next to the marina and the old town.

Following the course of the coast until reaching Tarragona, we arrive at Hospitalet de l’Infant, with areas of crystalline waters due to the presence of posidonia meadows.

This space is declared of natural interest due to the presence of mountains and vegetation by the sea.

Cala Fonda is another place rich in wild beauty, as well as the beach of Altafulla or Creixell, one of the best on the Costa Dorada.

Even so, the best route is the one discovered by sailing, and the Catalan coast offers many possibilities to discover it.

Lectora voraz desde que era una niña, pronto aprendió a contemplar el mundo con la mirada entre curiosa y soñadora de quienes aman la literatura. Algunas de las horas más gratas de su vida las ha pasado sumergida entre las páginas de un libro, pero sin renunciar por ello al "mundanal ruído". Porque también aprendió tempranamente que, la única forma de entender la mayoría de las historias, es viviéndolas.
