Cadaques in early March

We will be visiting our son in Barcelona and want to do two side trips from Barcelona.We're considering north to Cadques. We definitely want time at the Dali House/Museum and we love walking around beach and coastal areas. What advice do Cadaques experts, residents or visitors have? I'll post a similar question to the Valencia board because that's the other place we're considering as a separate 1-2 day side trip from Barcelona.

Open to any suggestions or feedback on any of the three areas.

We won't expect swimming/bathing suit type of beach days, but at the end of February/ beginning of March are the coastal areas pretty and warm enough to walk around during the days?

The northern Costa Brava is well worth a visit, even is low season, when it will be very, very quiet, but it is an ideal time to walk the coastal paths. It will be cold, relative to Texas, but it is usually warmer here than in the UK and we rarely get any snow. Days are often bright with blue skies.

If you are interested in Dali, also call at Pubol on the way to Figeures, which was Gala's house.

There will be little else to do in Cadeques, so you may prefer to stay near a 'working' town, like Palafrugell, which is close to Tamariu, Llafranc with beaches and the GR92 long distance footpath, passing along that way too.

Begur may be another option. Stay in the town and you can visit and walk along the paths next to the coast visiting cove beaches like Sa Riera, Sa Tuna, Aguiablava etc.

There are many medieval villages in the area: Pals, Peratallada, etc too.

The Greco Roman ruins at Empurius are well worth a visit, then walk along the path next to the beach, past the old Roman harbour wall and up to the village of Sant Marti d'Empurius, which is tiny, but usually one restaurant is open all year and their tapas are good.

Palafrugell, Torroella de Montgri and Palamos are all 'working' towns in the area, where more will be open. The small beach resorts will be virtually closed, with many restaurants only opening at the weekend, if at all.
