About Wolfs Cave & El Torn Nudist Beach - Hospitalet del Infant

Wolf's Cave, Cova del Llop Marí, is a natural sea cave with small beach inside that is only accessible by the sea. Inside the cave the light enters giving the water an amazing turquoise colour. The cave can be found by walking along El torn Beach from the town of L'Hospitalet del Elefant.

Visitng Cova del Llop Marí by swimming

You can swim from a beach about 100 metres away using a waterproof bag with all my things inside. I put the waterproof bag in my rucksack and used this as a float. On the day the sea was choppy and I was glad to have a flotation device for the short swim to the cave.

To preserve the natural beauty of the cave, L'Hospitalet de L'Infant townhall are restricting access to 10 people maximum at any one time and a maximum stay of 1 hour. The Cave is patrolled by a lifeguard in a kayak.

To reserve a timeslot to visit the cave you have to register on the tourism website then book your day and time at least 24 hours in advance. You will then receive a confirmation email with QR code. The cave visit is free but you must be authorised if going on a Friday, Saturday or Sunday in July and August.

Note: Wolfs Cave is about 2 hours walking from L'Hospitalet de L'Infant Renfe train station.

Visiting Wolfs Cave & El Torn Nudist Beach - Hospitalet del Infant

This EASY 11 km circular hiking route is to visit Wolf's cave and explore EL Torn nudist beach as well as walking via the pine forests behind the beach.

El Torn beach is a long natural sandy beach backed by a pine forest and small mountain. This is a clothing optional beach, One of the best nudist beach in Catalunya. At the end of El Torn beach is El torn Island which has the ruins of a Moorish watch tower.

My recommended place to swim is on the tiny secluded nudist beach by Illot del Torn rock at the end of El torn beach.

Platja de l'Arenal in front of L'Hospitalet del Infant town is not a nudist beach but visited by families and children.

On the beach is Chiringuito del Pep which is at the edge of the pine forest behind the beach and has the natural shade of the pine trees. Chiringuito L'Estel Torn is on the beach roughly half way along. Additionally inside the nudist campsite is Blauverd Torn Restaurant.

What to take with you for Wolfs Cave & El Torn Nudist Beach - Hospitalet del Infant

Getting to the cave involves swimming about 100 metres. What I do is ensure my phone is sealed inside its IPX8 case. I then put everything I want to remain dry inside the dry bag (wallet, clothes, towel, phone inside IPX8, shoes) which I seal well by folding over the top several times and clipping shut with some air inside. This sealed waterproof bag goes inside my rucksack which serves as a flotation device that I wear on my chest or push in front of me while swimming to the cave.

I wear the running shorts and wet shoes to the cave. If in a large group half of you can stay on the beach guarding clothes and bags while half visit the cave so no need for the waterproof bag. Do not leave valuables unattended on the beach.
