"The northeast coast of Spain is gorgeous!" Colera by Beausoleil

Colera Travel Guide: 4 reviews and 17 photos

A lovely day trip and drive into Spain from France

We were staying near Perpignan and decided to do a day trip to Colera in Spain. The drive along the D914 in France south to the N260 in Spain is a winding, wild road with magnificent views over the Mediterranean.

If you stop and walk along the side of the road, you walk on wild thyme and the smell is delicious.

Plan to take your time because the road is narrow

The harbor is pretty

We parked at the picturesque little harbor and walked around. It's a great place for photos of colorful fishing boats. There is a beach and people were swimming, but it was a rock and gravel beach and didn't look very inviting.

There are several restaurants overlooking the harbor which might be fun although we drove back to Cerbere for lunch since we have a favorite restaurant there.

Lots of photo opportunities

The drive down and back is spectacular and there is little traffic so you can stop and take photos whenever you like.
