You just about can't find a more remote place in Spain but its worth the effort to get to this spot. The views are spectacular, but the wind can be quite strong so it can be cool, even on a warm day.

The path that takes you there is not anything for people with vertigo. Be aware of the pirates on the Cala Cebolla! Once there enjoy the 360 degree views, the wind and the ocean.

The actual lighthouse is nothing exciting, but the walk is beautiful. We rode it with bikes rented at the hotel and some parts were a bit of a challenge, but lots of fun.

Lighthouse is not open so that is not the attraction . The walk there is the attraction we did it via an old hermitage and took 4 hours but it can be done there and back along the coast from Cadaques.

There are not enough words in dictionary to describe this place. Fantastic, unbelievable view. Seating there, viewing beautiful Costa Brava coast is one of the most briliant thing I have seen ever. Go there, stay for a while and you will remember that for your whole life.

It is up and down - corresponding to 64 floors according to my health apps - but definitely worth the effort. The trail is quite walkable - it takes about an hour from the harbour to the lighthouse. Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful!

On the end of a strainge landscape of the National Park Cap de Creus on the most high point is the Far de Cala Nans; Whether for the building or for the view, the walk up the hill is worth it; The Lighthouse offers a unique perspective.

Tough walk . it took us 90 minutes from our hotel. It was definitely worth the effort, but there are some tight cliff parts of the walk. Some amazing views along the way. Great photo opportunities.

There and back at a normal pace takes approx 2 hours, although count on extra if you want to take the track down to Cala Nans beach and have a swim or down to the little landing below the lighthouse. One of my favourite walks.
