Trip Planner: Europe / Spain / Catalonia / Province of Girona / Costa Brava / Cadaques / Cap de Creus National Park
Cap de Creus is a peninsula and a headland located at the far northeast of Catalonia, some south from the French border. The cape lies in the municipal area of Cadaqués, and the nearest large town is Figueres, capital of the Alt Empordà and birthplace of Salvador Dalí. Cap de Creus is the easternmost point of Catalonia and therefore of mainland Spain and the Iberian Peninsula.The area is now a Natural Park.The peninsula has an area of of an extraordinary landscape value; a windbeaten very rocky dry region, with almost no trees, in contrast with a seaside rich in minuscule creeks of deep blue sea to anchor. Mountains are the eastern foothills of the Pyrenees, the natural border between France and Spain. The region is frequently swept by awful north wind "tramontana" (beyond mountains) which has caused many naval disasters. Cadaqués is the most well known village, home of artists and writers, with sophisticated atmosphere, near Port Lligat where Dalí built his home in a paradise small bay. (Dalí depicted the peninsula in his painting The Persistence of Memory.) El Port de la Selva, with a little fishing harbour, is less exploited, with good gastronomic recourses and pleasant terraces.Use our Cadaques itinerary planner to add Cap de Creus National Park and other attractions to your Cadaques vacation plans.

Cap de Creus National Park reviews
Cap de creus itself is well worth a visit by boat or by car (if you could, see below). Lots of lovely coves for swimming in and some lovely walking trails. However in a pilot project since last.... more »
We visited Cap de Creus one day in July on a day trip from Begur. Overall the park is stunning. The parking was a bit of a challenge. We were unable to park at the lighthouse and had to take a bus... more »
Spain's Eastermost and wildest cape. A must visit if you want a timelsss dose of wind, a vista of sea and rocks and ever-changing sky. more »
Amazing place! Incredible views. If you like hiking and exploring on rocks with 360 degree views this is your place.
Absolutely stunning place, although brace yourselves for getting there with your car, as it can be quite stressful. Nice, small beaches around. Take good shoes as its very rocky!
Loads of people and traffic on small roads, possibly nice out of peak season or if you arrive very early and go for a long walk away from the crowds.
This is a magical place to spend a day wandering. Great restaurant views and paved paths. Pretty affordable, given the location, too.
One of the best places in Catalunya!
