Consider Cadaques for a honeymoon holiday or romantic getaway and discover Spain's easternmost town – an unspoiled and remote picture-perfect fishing village that sprawls across several small coves surrounding a beautiful inlet.
What to do and see in Cadaques
Wander narrow twisting streets lined with old whitewashed houses topped with red roofs and overlooked by the charming 16th century Església de Santa María (church), which sits perched on a hilltop overlooking the village and its small golden-sand and shingle beach.
Stroll along the waterfront, pop into the Gothic church to see its Baroque alter and see artworks by Dalí in the Museo de Cadaqués. Even better, take a 30-minute walk to the nearby Port Lligat, where you can visit the artist’s summer home, now a small museum known as Casa-Museu Salvador Dalí and featuring two of his paintings. The former fisherman’s house and its egg-shaped towers face a small beach.
After dark, head to the famous L'Hostal, rated by some music critics as the second-best jazz club in Europe.
Cadaques sits beneath the dramatic Cap de Creus mountain range and is easily reached by bus or car along a winding mountain road from the nearby town of Rosas. Or hike the coastal path from Rosas, which stretches for 15km and passes several bays and beaches along the way.
Come for a day or stay longer at the Rocamar, a 3-star hotel with water and mountain views and known for serving good local cuisine. Or try Hotel Playa Sol, a comfortable spot located in a quiet section of the bay overlooking the town and church.
