Platja gran or es portal in cadaques

The charm of Cadaqués dazzles everyone who comes to this small fishing village, where small white buildings accumulate in front of the beach surrounded by the depths of the green vegetation of the Mediterranean forest.

If you are looking for a relaxing holiday with the best family atmosphere and magnificent conditions to enjoy the beach, don’t hesitate and spend a couple of days in this charming little village in Girona, it will be unforgettable!

The busiest area of Cadaqués is of course the one with not only the best range of services but also the largest beach in the area, the Platja Gran or Es Portal, as it is also known.

It is a pebbly bay that stretches 300 metres long and 12 metres wide, where it is not unusual for you to encounter a problem or two when setting up your sun lounger (forget your towel if you don’t want to pay a visit to the masseur), as it is particularly crowded during the summer months.

If being on the beach under the sun and the Mediterranean breeze is already a pleasure in itself, the icing on the cake is the excellent range of services in the area, which offers a promenade with many restaurants serving the best Mediterranean cuisine, small local shops and a wide range of cultural activities: Salvador Dalí’s house museum, the old town centre and the Church of Santa Maria, the natural park of Cap de Creus?

If you want a little more movement for the evening, it won’t cost you anything to get to Roses, a much larger (but equally busy) tourist destination that is a typical Mediterranean seaside town.

In short, everything you need to enjoy a traditional Mediterranean holiday without giving up leisure and culture.
