The three most hidden coves on the Costa Dorada 

If earlier we talked about the largest beaches on the Costa Dorada we now want to tell you about the three most hidden coves on the Costa Dorada, because during the holidays there always comes a time when one wants to take a break from the busy pace and relax in an isolated hidden corner, without the hustle and bustle of people. Here are three coves in which the environment and tranquility will become your best allies.

Cala Jovera

Located at the foot of the Tamarit Castle, from here there are beautiful views of this medieval fortress and the surrounding environment. Due to its location, it was formerly used as a port. Now it is one of the most beautiful and well-preserved coves on the Costa Dorada, which is why it has received the «Virgin beach of the Tarragona Coast» beach award. It doesn’t have any showers, washbasins, lifeguards or any type of service and can only be accessed walking.

Cala Roca Plana

This small cove is located in the middle of the Marquesa Forest, in an idyllic pine forest landscape on the Costa Dorada. It is a practically unspoiled cove, with crystalline waters where you can have fun practicing snorkeling, especially in the rocky area that delimits its space in a natural way. Like Cala Jovera, Cala Roca Plana has no services. You can only reach it after a half-way walk across a forest path, but it’s worth it! Keep in mind that it is a nudist cove.

Cala Moros

Cala Moros is a piece of secluded and tranquil coast, of great natural beauty, which is located in El Perelló. It is not like most beaches and coves on the Costa Dorada. Its sand is thicker and darker than usual, with a certain volcanic aspect, and is flanked by rocks and vegetation. It is a very quiet cove in which there are hardly any people, which seems perfect to enjoy the sea without stress or haste.
