Costa Brava is one of the most scenic parts of northern Spain. This gem of the Mediterranean in the Catalan region is renowned for its awe-inspiring landscapes; beautiful sandy beaches and natural scenery including miles of footpaths providing tourists the opportunity to marvel at the rugged, wildflower filled coastline.
Whether it’s the parks and eye-catching botanical gardens, gastronomy for which the region is renowned (Catalonia has the most Michelin starred chefs in Spain), or the picturesque old towns and fishing villages which create the perfect picture-postcard backdrop, a holiday here allows you to explore all this and more.
The mild Mediterranean climate also attributes to people visiting all year round with the moderate winters and hot, dry summers.
The Costa Brava is a hotspot for culture with more than 40 galleries and museums. Dali enthusiasts will love the three museums celebrating the work of Salvador Dali: the Dalí Theatre-Museum in Figueres, the Gala-Dalí Castle House-Museum in Púbol which displays his early works and the Salvador Dalí House-Museum in Portlligat. Another must-visit is the historic city of Girona, just along the coast with its Medieval architecture and fascinating ancient walled Old Quarter.
Tamariu, Aiguablava, Platja de Canadell and Llanfranc are just a select few of the beautiful blue-flag beaches that can be found on the Costa Brava. Golden sands, secluded coves, backed by rugged cliffs and beautifully clear water, idyllic seaside spots where you can enjoy the sunshine. There’s plenty to do when at the beach too; from scenic boat trips to more adventurous watersports including kayaking and windsurfing, snorkelling or simply making sandcastles.
Children will love PP's park in Platja D`Aro, the theme park of the Costa Brava where they can ride Karts, roller coasters, water rides such as Niagra and inflatables. It’s a great day out for all the family. Aqua Brava Waterpark, south of Cadaqués is another great attraction. This waterworld has various pools including wave pools and waterfalls to splash about in and is a cooling respite from the Spanish sun. Venturing out further, then Port Aventura Park, two hours drive away in the town of Salou, boasts six different areas or ‘worlds’ each with themed rides, restaurants and other attractions. Ride the fastest rollercoaster in Europe, Furios Baco or how about Shambhala? At 76m tall it is the park’s highest. Meanwhile, F1 fans can slope off to Ferrari Land also part of Port Aventura Park and immerse themselves in adrenaline fueled interactive motor racing experiences.
For those looking for a chilled evening vibe and a taste of traditional Catalan cuisine, the picturesque old towns and villages of Tossa de Mar, Cadaqués, Figueras and Begur with their Moorish and Colonial influences, are brimming with charming restaurants and welcoming bars serving sunset cocktails or the local speciality ‘cremat,’ rum and coffee punch with spices. Night owls should head to Lloret de Mar one of the main resort towns and a renowned stamping ground for lively pubs and clubs on the Costa Brava.
