Cala Guillola, Cap de Creus, Cadaques

If hidden little coves and bays are your thing then look no further than Cala Guillola, roughly half way between Cadaques and Cap de Creus.

It can be a little difficult to find (you won’t see any signs pointing you where to go) and a little difficult actually getting there but your efforts will well be worth it.

We chanced upon the cove on a bright and fresh January morning with no other people in sight. Talk about idyllic, the temptation to try out the crystal clear water was very strong but the fact that we were in the middle of winter ensured sanity prevailed.

Aiguablava, Begur, Costa Brava

One of the prettiest beaches along the whole Costa Brava, Aiguablava is a popular beach for holiday makers and locals alike.

At around 150m in length Aiguablava (Blue Water in Catalan) and due to its popularity the beach can become pretty crowded during the peak months of July and August.

During the high season there are two or three small bars/restaurants and shops that open but it is not as commercialised such as somewhat larger beaches like Sa Riera or Tamariu.

The photographs posted here were taken on a slightly overcast windy February day.
