Cala dels Frares (Lloret de Mar, Catalonia)

A few weeks ago, I decided to visit the “Cala dels Frares.” It is just a 10-minute walk from the main beach in “Lloret de Mar,” a popular holiday resort between Girona and Barcelona.

That day, the inlet was overcrowded by other photographers and I decided to take photos in nearby spot. However, winter is the best season to capture a good sunrise over the inlet and, after checking the weather report, I decided to return a week later. That time I got much luckier; the weather was perfect and it give me the opportunity to capture some beautiful sunrises, like this one.

“Cala dels Frares” literally means “Inlet of the Monks” but it has nothing to do with the religious men. The name refers the large rocks on the coastline; for a long, long time, local people have been referring to them as monks.
