The best six coves in Costa Brava

SALADO, one of our latest niche scents, is probably our major homage (with the permission of Costarela) to our beloved Mediterranean; endless summer days by the coast, feeling the sun and salty water on our skin.

If you really want to understand what inspired us to create Salado, take good note of our not-to-miss coves along the Costa Brava and don’t forget to pack your favorite bathing suits to enjoy a perfect summer in the Mediterranean coast.

But before we start, what’s a cove? A cove is a small sheltered bay, discrete, innermost and often hardly accessible. A piece on Earth to relax, enjoy quietness and feel in contact with nature.

Aiguablava, Begur: This is one of the most stunning beaches in the Costa Brava, with golden sand and a beautiful natural atmosphere. This cove also hosts one of our favorite restaurants, TOC al Mar, a laid-back ”chiringuito” with outstanding views and delicious freshly cooked dishes.

La Cala del Senyor Ramon, Santa Cristina d’Aro: Also known as “La Cocollada” is a wild cove with cliffs of up to 800 meters and crystal clear waters.

Cala Cullaró, Cadaqués: The effect that wind and sand have had on its rocks along the years is simply spectacular. Many experts say that Dalí was inspired by Cala Cullaró to create the art piece “El Gran Masturbador“ (The Great Masturbator). You can only Access this cove by foot, but it is well worth the effort.

Cala Montgó, L’Escala: Between  L’Escala and Torroella de Montgrí, its fine white sand and tranquile waters make it perfect for a family-day.

For those who are looking for adventure, rent a kayak at Cala Montgó and paddle to the cave “Cova de la Sal”, in “l´Escala”, one of our favorite activities to be in touch with nature.

Cala de Sa Futadera, Tossa de Mar: It’s not easy to choose which is our favorite cove in Tossa de Mar, but probably Sa Futadera’s pristine nature puts it on the top of the list. A true oasis for those who search quietness.

Cala Bramant, Llança: A natural pool surrounded by rock walls of about 10 meters high. Definitively one of the most romantic coves in Costa Brava, for this reason, Cala Bramant is popularly known as “La Cala dels Enamorats” (the lovers’ cove in Catalan).
