This area is very pretty, with gorgeous blue water and rugged earthy cliffs.
However, since we were looking for active activities (hiking, kayaking, snorkeling, etc), we found ourselves a bit disappointed. Most of the area can only be toured on a motor boat or driving...More
Cap the Creus is a must if you're about. It's a national park and access is only through a narrow two lanes road, making the drive a bit challenging at busy times of the year. The scenery around the lighthouse is breathtaking, odd rock formations...More

Bit hot for too much hiking but the scenery in this part of the Costa Brava is simply stunning. Rock formations, small coves, lovely fishing villages. Main roads are good and Llança to Cadaques takes 25mins at a leisurely pace.
