Adresse of the Cala Margarida : Carrer Cala Margarida 17230 Palamós

Near Cap Gros, in Palamos, lies the Cala Margarida, which thanks to its houses and interesting seabed has great charm.

The narrow cove, facing south, consists of gravel and pebbles, some large. With a few sandy areas. Privacy is its main asset, thanks to its traditional white houses. Some are decorated with taste. Cala Margarida also hosts small fishing boats and pleasure craft. It is generally not busy. Cala Margarida is a small hamlet added to Palamos, but that has its own identity. In the Middle Ages, the area was used by the authorities to accommodate quarantined travellers, to ensure that they do not have any infection which could trigger an epidemic in the city.

The other attraction of the cove is its seabed known among divers, where the seaweed is of great ecological value. There are starfish, various fish species such as eels and, from a geological point of view, abrupt slopes to nearly 25 meters deep. Quite a show for lovers of scuba diving.

Little known, except for divers and fishermen, this cove is almost a private place to sail. This is not the case, fortunately.
