1. Swim in clear crystal water in Dalí’s hometown, Cadaqués

One of the most stunning fishing villages in the Wild Coast (Costa Brava) is also the place where Dalí got inspired during part of his life.

He was living there for many years. And many other artists got also inspired in Cadaqués, such as Picasso.

The best way to enjoy Cadaqués is to rent a car and stay there a couple of days. Beautiful sea surrounded by mountains, good food and a piece of inspiration.

If you are looking for a place to sleep, check out Blaumar, a nice hotel near the sea with also a swimming pool. Perfect place to disconnect from the world and connect with yourself.
