Cap de Creus


One of the great joys of visiting Cadaques are the walks, beaches and bays of the Cap de Creus, which forms the most easterly point of the Iberian penisular and is home to the towns of Port de la Selva and Roses, as well as Cadaques.

The Cap de Creus was declared a nature reserve in 1998, due to its unique geology and coastal beauty. It marks the most eastern end of the Pyrenees as they crash into the Mediterrannean, and the barren rocky coastline is dotted with secluded, deep blue coves.

The lighthouse at the Cap (Catalan), Cabo (Castellano) or Cape is an important feature in the area's nautical charts, particularly on the wild winter days when the Tramuntana kicks in.
