Gorgeous, picture postcard cove near Calella. A honeymooner’s paradise.

This is one of my favourite coves on the Costa Brava. It’s tiny, secluded and wonderfully romantic with a short crescent of sand nestling between tall pines and jagged granite coloured rocks sheltering you on either side like blinkers from the outside world. The sea is a crystalline turquoise (great for snorkelling) with a shallow bed of dark rocks at the shoreline. The only way to get there is either by boat or on foot down a steep, winding flight of steps about 15 minutes walk along the coast from Calella de Palafrugell.

Expert tips

The water here is safe for swimming and ideal for scuba diving.

The Cap Roig Botanical Gardens are just above and overlook this cove so they're a great place to visit either before or after the beach.
