Begur coves route.
This itinerary is recommended for the days that we know for sure that the wind of Garbí or south component will enter in the afternoon. It is best to do this route in a whole day to enjoy all the coves that are in Begur
As we have said before, if the weather forecast marks us south wind in the afternoon, we will take advantage of leaving in good morning from the port of l'Estartit heading south, towards Begur to travel and enjoy all the coves of its coast. From north to south, the following coves or places of special charm of must visit will appear: Sa Riera, Cala de Aiguafreda, Sa Tuna, Fornells, Aiguablava and other small small beachbars adjoining those listed.
Therefore, the first we find is Sa Riera, former settlement of inshore fishermen and some pioneering coral scavengers on the Costa Brava. Today you can still breathe a Mediterranean air, with a small white sandy beach, crystal clear waters, typical houses surrounded by green pine trees.
Heading south and just leave Sa Riera, we will sail through the Ses Negres Marine Reserve, an important enclave of marine life as sport and professional fishing are prohibited. Cap Sa Sal starboard our boat, former casino and currently restored and remodeled to become luxury apartments with virtually private beaches with direct access to the sea. Then and always to the south, we will see the cove of Aiguafreda, perhaps one of the least populated in Begur, because the buildings are scarce, Still, the view from the sea, if we make the route in summer, will be somewhat difficult due to the large number of boats that are anchored in the fields to buoys placed at ex-process.
Not far from Aiguafreda, we find Sa Tuna, very beautiful cove that has all the essential features to reflect the image of a Mediterranean calite in its authentic essence: crystal clear waters, small white houses and vegetation accustomed to the saltpeter of the sea next to pines that grow near the shore. Here we can make a good stop, because apart from bathing and sunbathing, we will have the possibility to approach the beach and be able to taste the most typical fish dishes of the area in one of the few existing restaurants.
Cap de Begur will be the next orographic point we'll save. This cape, is the one that often divides two seas, the north sea of the south sea (the north wind blows until the cape passes to the south, then the one that will blow will be the wind of Garbí. South of Cap de Begur, we find the small port of Fornells that in times of bad weather and bad sea, closes its entrance to protect the few small ones that are moored in its docks.
Finally, it appears to the south, the cove of Aiguablava and on its cliffs, the parador of Aiguablava appears, with splendid views of the blue of the sea.
Surely, we already have southwind if we meet there at noon or early in the afternoon. That is why the recommendation to make the route with the possibility of south wind, since now, to return to the port of l'Estartit will squeeze us by the stern, facilitating our navigation.
