Known locally as the 'cove of the 300 steps', this is an authentic paradise, but is often overlooked in the face of more popular coves, such as Vallpresona and Senyor Ramon. However, don't ignore this small gem as it contains the very essence of the Costa Brava: it's surrounded by rocks and pine trees and the water is completely clear. Even though it's not that difficult to get to (although it may trouble you if you suffer vertigo), you're more likely to find boats there than people sunbathing or diving. Trust us on this one, and make sure you check it out. You won't regret it.
