- Chilling out
Let it all hang out at this secluded cove near Dali’s house at Cadaqués.
If you carry on walking south along the main seafront at Cadaques, you’ll get to this small, sheltered, pebbled cove. With steep rocks on three sides, the water tends to be pretty tranquil here so it’s great for swimming or if you’re here in the height of summer and fancy being at one with nature in every sense of the word, you won’t be alone as the beach is quite popular with nudists. Dalí was also a frequent visitor and apparently told a writer friend of his that the rocks on Sa Conca beach were all ‘elements of different battles’. There aren’t many beaches you can say that about.
There are some extremely good diving schools nearby at Cap Creus as well as boats and kayaks for rent. Ask in the tourist office in Cadaques for full details. You can also rent bikes and scooters from Rentabit - www.rentabit.net or go out for excursions in Gala Dali's boat.
