Cala del Vigatà

A beautiful pebble cove nestled at the foot of a cliff.

A beautiful pebble cove nestled at the foot of a cliff.

It can be accessed on foot from the end of Carrer de Jaume Vicens i Vives heading towards the sea. At the end of the street, a fairly long stretch of steep stone stairs zigzags down to the cove, taking around 5 to 10 minutes to reach the bottom. The site of one of the region’s largest Posidonia oceanica (Neptune grass) meadows can be found just in front of this cove, forming, together with the Port Salvi area, a hugely valuable marine environment that is included within the European Natura 2000 network of Protected Natural Areas. It is a mixed-use cove and naturism is permitted. During the swimming season (from the beginning of Easter week until the end of October), the cove is cordoned off as a bathing area, ensuring the safety of swimmers and beach users by preventing boats from coming in close to the shoreline. The City Council installs 30 ecological moorings outside this marked area to protect the Neptune grass meadow from anchor damage and facilitate leisure craft use. A swimming channel marked with buoys offers increased safety for expert open water swimmers interested in swimming this route that connects the cove with Sant Feliu beach.
