Estreta Cala, Cala Remendon, Roca Cala Bona and El crit are just separated by rocky points. This set of coves is quite difficult to access. Despite this, it is a creek adopted by many tourists for its intimacy and its clear water, so that its occupancy rate is generally high in summer.

From Cape de Planes (between Roca Bona and El Crit), can be seen at 1.5 km Formigues Islands (ants) , is an archipelago of 16 islands. The Formigues are a haven for various seabirds like gulls and cormorants. A naval battle « battle of Les Formigues », held there in 1285, and saw the victory of the Catalan fleet on the French fleet of Philip III.

Cala Estrata
The golden sands and spectacular waters, deep and crystal clear make it an ideal place for diving or snorkelling. In addition, it is common to see boats around because access is more convenient by sea than by land.

A wild and nude beach

The practice of nudism is common to Cala Estreta, but not required, so that it can be considered a mixed beach. Of course, the isolation of the beach makes that there is no hammocks, umbrellas or sunbathing rental. There is no beach bar. The only building is an old fishing shelter of the sixteenth century has been restored by the city of Palamos.
