1. Cova de s'Infern
Located under the lighthouse of Cap de Creus, it gets its name, which means "Cave of Hell", from the reddish color that its waters acquire when the sun is reflected. Between the two sides of the cave the sea creates a natural pool of clear water ideal for a good soak.
2. La ForadadaLocated between L'Escala and L'Estartit, on the Montgrí Natural Park coast, below Cap Castell. This cave is large enough so that small boats can cross it from side to side. From a distance it looks like you don’t have to pass, but if you approach it you will be out of breath as you cross it.
3. Cova d'en Gispert
This cave, located between Aiguablava and Aiguaxelida, in Begur, is the longest on the Costa Brava and for some the most spectacular. The most notorious anecdote told of this cave is that Salvador Dalí himself organized a private singing concert in the 1960s, as the acoustics were unbeatable. If you want, you can try singing it when you walk in to check it out!
4. Cova de la Sal
Located next to Cala Montgó, just before Punta Milà. It is a cave well known by the L'Escala locals, as it is an ideal point if you like to snorkel without danger on days of calm tide and one of the most common points in the area where to go scuba diving.
5. Cova del Bisbe
Another small cave located in the area of Begur, next to the Cova d'en Gispert, where it is possible to enter to the bottom if you are not afraid of the dark. Many kayak routes in the area get there, as it is an ideal way to discover it.
6. La Banyera de la Russa
Mrs. Woevodsky (who by the way was not Russian, but her husband) often went down to this place to bathe naked in its salt water, so the placed was named "The Russian Bath". Located between Mont-ras and Calella de Palafrugell, it is currently only accessible from the sea, but it is worth taking off your clothes and paying a small tribute to Mrs. Woevodsky.
7. Cova del Pelegrí
This majestic cave is located under the Puig de la Figuera in Cadaqués. With a maximum depth of 40 meters, it is much appreciated by divers who love the waters of the Cap de Creus area. Its bottom, in turn, shows us small caves and holes between the stones.
An ideal plan to feel the force of the water and the connection with the rocks eroded by its passage. These 7 caves and grottoes of the Costa Brava that we propose to visit from the sea, will be a perfect refuge to be able to cool off on the hottest days of summer.
