Sa Conca beach
How to get
Sa Conca beach
Sa Conca beach is located to the south of Cadaqués. It is a natural area made up mainly of coarse sand and rocks; the depth of the water as you enter the beach is remarkable.
It is easily accessible by car and has a parking area very close by. It can also be reached on foot from Cadaqués, taking a stroll along the seafront. The beach has a bar and restaurant service within walking distance, and it is a recommended place for swimming lovers, as it is part of the Cadaqués white-water rafting itinerary. Due to its location and characteristics, Sa Conca is also a beach with a tradition of nudism.
A picture postcard village
Cadaqués is one of the unique towns on the Costa Brava. Its geographical location in the middle of the rugged Cap de Creus led it to be practically isolated until the end of the 19th century. This peculiarity has enabled it to conserve a significant part of the original layout of many of its narrow, picturesque streets.
As a whole, the old quarter of Cadaqués is a protected historical area and has been declared a Cultural Asset of National Interest. Strolling through its narrow streets, surrounded by marvellous whitewashed houses with brightly coloured shutters, is one of the great charms of Cadaqués.
Its fantastic beaches and coves, sculpted by the effects of the tramontana wind, served as inspiration for the brilliant painter Salvador Dalí, who took up residence in the neighbouring town of Portlligat.
