Our opinion on the Portlligat Beach

Adresse of the Portlligat Beach : Av Salvador Dali 17488 Cadaqués

Cadaques Portlligat Beach attracts more for Salvador Dali’s history, than its real charms, which are nonetheless real. Located at the bottom of a naturally protected cove, Portlligat’s calm waters promote kayaking. Its sand is quite rare and is strewn with pebbles. It is rather a place for contemplation and boating than for lounging or beach sports. Try to visit the Dali house museum, at the end of the beach but you will need a lot of patience because the number of visitors is restricted.
