It is a 7.5 km walk/run from Cadaqués center, easy path with wonderful views over the sea and the village.

Nice walk. Couple of really steep areas getting out of town. I would wear proper walking shoes. Beautiful views back to Cadaques from the lighthouse.

About an hours walk from Cadaques, up and down, it helps to build the appetite for lunch. Look out for a stunning beach on your way, you can clamber down, though not for the faint hearted.

You just about can't find a more remote place in Spain but its worth the effort to get to this spot. The views are spectacular, but the wind can be quite strong so it can be cool, even on a warm day.

The path that takes you there is not anything for people with vertigo. Be aware of the pirates on the Cala Cebolla! Once there enjoy the 360 degree views, the wind and the ocean.

The actual lighthouse is nothing exciting, but the walk is beautiful. We rode it with bikes rented at the hotel and some parts were a bit of a challenge, but lots of fun.
