Best Day Trips from Barcelona 2: Cadaques

You’ll have to get up pretty early in the morning to get to this special beach on the Costa Brava, but I’d say it’s worth it. Cadaques is well-known for its white houses which squeeze together along the village’s egg-shaped shoreline.

Cadaques is popular with city-slickers from Barcelona as well as the French, as it is in northern Catalunya, near the French border. Really, it’s best to stay the night in Cadaques, but if you rent a car, you could also easily visit this beach as a day trip from Barcelona (trains do not go to Cadaques – buses do).

Your best bet? Head to Cadaques and pop into the tourist information center to grab a map of the village’s trails. Then head out on the trail to the Cadaques lighthouse. This is a beautiful walk along a dirt path passing through lavender and rosemary-covered hills. From this path you will also gain access to a few more secluded beach coves. Once at the lighthouse, enjoy the views.
