Cadaqués is a long-time Scoop fave. It’s gorgeous just about any time of year, though I think May and September are the best months to visit (in August it’s packed). This all-bone-white beach village is close to the Catalan-French border and about two hours from Barcelona to the north. It can be visited on a day-trip, but it’s best to stay the night in Cadaqués or nearby in Girona.
What’s there to do in Cadaqués besides nothing (which is a perfectly good thing to do on vacation)? Well, you could swim in the village’s translucent waters, hike to its coves and lighthouse, eat typical fideuá with squid at one of its many seaside restaurants, take a trip to Port Lligat, where Dalí’s house is located (visits by reservation only), or head to the natural park, Cap de Creus, for a day of hiking among the wild rosemary and lavender.
Take a gander at the photos below, collected during many trips to Cadaqués, for a little travel inspiration. This is a Scoopometer 10!
