Here is a list of 6 of the best places that are only accessible by boat in Spain. Set sail for your next holiday and go on an adventure in Spain, you surely won’t regret it!

Culip Cove, Cadaqués

Located a few kilometers from the Cap de Creus lighthouse, it is one of the few beaches where, if you arrive by boat, you can anchor in the area. Below Culip Cove there are still remains of ancient Rome and Greece, many of which have been studied. The geological landscape of this beach is really impressive and worth discovering.

Cala Ferriol, Costa Brava

Hidden in the Montgrí Natural Park, one of the wildest and most beautiful places in the area. Due to its clear waters and the 150 metres lenght, it’s a virgin paradise. It’s impossible to reach it by car and the forest path from Cala Montgó to Cala Ferriol requires approximately one and a half hours of walking. It is among the places that are only reachable by boat in Spain. The best option is to rent a boat and reach it by that.

Espalmador, Formentera

150 metres north of Formentera, in the Balearic Islands, Espalmador is a private island, which makes it a wonderful place to anchor. It is the ideal beach because of the long white sand beaches and transparent waters.

Trebalúger Cove, Menorca

Many think that every beach is full of people in the Balearics in the summer. However, Trebalúger is the perfect escape route to show that it is still possible to find places of maximum calmness. This cove is known for being the least frequented beach in Menorca because it’s difficult to access, except for those who can get there on a boat. It is a virgin beach of fine sand that only lucky few can visit by boat.

Cala Dels Testos, Alicante

The Spanish east coast holds many secrets that you can discover if you want to escape from mass tourism. It’s ideal if you want to visit some long sandy beaches along the coast of the Valencian Community. Very close to the Cala del Moraig and the Cova dels Arcs, there is an untouched isolated paradise between two vertical walls: the Cala Testos.
