“Not to be missed.”
Reviewed July 10, 2014

Strong walking boots a necessity to do the 7km walk from Cadaques to the lighthouse at Cap Creus but the effort is well rewarded. Underfoot conditions vary from concrete footpaths in the built up areas around Port Lligat to loose shale where the narrow track loops up and down as you pass the various coves along the way. Encouragingly, the lighthouse appears in the distance from time to time to reassure you that you are on the right track; the red/green markers are very well appointed along the route for added confidence.
Allow about two hours but there are a number of sidetracks to be explored if one wanted to take a swim in one of the small bays en route.
The piece de resistance however has to be the bowl of fish soup and a beer, taken on the restaurant balcony on arrival, with the view of land and sea laid out before you. The restaurant does offer a reasonably full menu, including a selection of curries interestingly enough.
To return to Cadaques, a taxi is a possible option; the two hour trek back requires a certain level of fitness and stamina.

“Beautiful view over the sea, rugged landscape”
Reviewed July 10, 2014

There is not much to do on Cap de Creus, except for admire nature and rugged landscape of the most eastern point of Spain. The view is awesome, you can see sea all around you from the light house. There is a small bar, which only serves sandwiches and drinks and a small museum in the light tower. You can find toilets behind the bar, on the way to the other restaurant. If you have some space left on your memory card, visit Cap de Creus and bring some comfy shoes.

“serene and scenic”
Reviewed June 20, 2014

A nice little hike or drive to one of the most picturesque landscapes you will ever see. It's breathtaking.
I enjoyed every minute of the drive to Cadaques that showed me glimpses of it's beautiful coastline and just could't wait to get closer.
If you love a hike or even a stroll along the coast with it's pristine waters and don't mind descending a few rocky trails to get to a private little beach to enjoy swimming in those clearly clear waters, Cap de Creus is the place to be.
For me it was a little piece of heaven on earth.

“You must go!”
Reviewed June 11, 2014

If you are in this area of Spain, please do not miss this! I had been in Barcelona and took a trip out to Cadaques and it was my favorite part of the trip. This is the most beautiful landscape I have ever witnessed! The hike is wonderful and there are plenty f places to stop for a swim in the gorgeous clear blue water!
