CAP DE CREUS + SWIMMING
The Cap de Creus is a headland located at the northern end of the Costa Brava, at the tip of a small peninsula that penetrates into the Mediterranean Sea and separates the Gulf or Roses to the south from the Gulf of Lions to the north.
We begin the journey passing by all the lovely small coves of the Cap de Creus Nature Park, one by one, with a wonderful submarine view of the seabed at Cala Murtra. At Cap Norfeu we see the rock known as ‘the Cat,’ and if the weather permits we enter the Tamariu cave. We continue along the coast, passing by the Figuera point, the bay of Cala Jóncols and the bay of Cadaqués, to reach the point of the Cap de Creus. This headland is the easternmost point of the Iberian Peninsula. The area of the cape belongs to the municipal district of Cadaqués and forms part of the Cap de Creus Nature Park. It is also known locally as the Devil’s Cape, and the northern and southern areas of sea which it separates are known as “mar amunt” and “mar avall” (“upper and lower sea”), respectively.
On the promontory closest to the point there stands a lighthouse built over the foundations of a Roman signal tower, which in the late Middle Ages was used as a watchtower. Here we make a half-turn to enter the bay of Portlligat, where we can view the Salvador Dalí House-Museum from the catamaran, and then we enter the Bay of Cadaqués to admire this supremely picturesque town from the boat. Then we sail to a small cove where we moor the boat to a buoy so that anyone who wants to can swim for about 30 minutes, using our fun water slides.
