Costa Brava makes up a large area in Catalonia and the landscape is dotted with superb beaches and secluded coves that invite you to discover your own perfect spot. Costa Brava also features some of the region’s most impressive historical sites, including the Salvador Dali house-museum in Cadaques, the ruins of the ancient town of Empúries and the breath-taking Italian Renaissance gardens of Santa Clotilde in Lloret de Mar.
Lloret de Mar is one of the liveliest resorts in the region featuring hundreds of bars and discos catering for partygoers, but with facilities to suit families with children as well. Less than 50 miles from Barcelona and with resorts that feature beaches that have been awarded Blue Flag status for their high standard of cleanliness, this Catalonian coastal town is a hotspot and a great choice for your holidays in Spain.
In addition to the big resorts that stretch along the coastline there are numerous little fishing villages and small towns that feature some of the region's impressive historical architecture, whitewashed homes and coarse sand beaches. Take the opportunity to enjoy the excellent cuisine of the Costa Brava, which may feature delicious fresh seafood and local wild game such as rabbit and boar.
A quieter resort, but no less popular, is Tossa de Mar, which is just over 60 miles north of Barcelona. Although it is one of the larger resorts on the coast, it’s also very attractive, as the medieval and Roman features are still present in a town which has long inspired artists who enjoy the beautiful light. Views of the beach are complemented by worn, cobbled streets flanked by whitewashed homes and well-tended window boxes.
