Family Activities in Costa Brava

Costa Brava is one of the most family friendly locales in Spain and is a big hit with children, teens, parents, grandparents and everyone else in between.

Set right on the water, Costa Brava's beaches stretch for miles and make the ideal playground for any family excursion. If you're travelling to this 'wild coast' get ready for an incredible outdoor adventure, soaking up the Spanish sun and enjoying the sights with the ones you love.

Costa Brava is no stranger to the family holiday, and is chock-full of activities that will attract every age group in your party. Take a look through our family activity guide for some inspiration, and get planning your next holiday to Costa Brava today.

Beaches galore

The best place to start a family holiday in Costa Brava is the beach.

This seaside region is where you'll find all the excitement as well as a whole host of activities and attractions, as if the stunning clear water and perfect sun-kissed sand wasn't enough.

Watersports are very big here, so if you have any adrenaline junkies in your family they can join in with windsurfing, scuba diving, and snorkelling.

If you'd rather have a little rest and relaxation, let the kids play on the shore while you unwind on a sunlounger. There are several sight-seeing opportunities right on the coastline, with historical sites like the Tossa de Mar castle and an 18th-century lighthouse.

Beaches here also have all the facilities you need to make it an all day event, with restaurants and cafes lining shores.


If you're visiting the sunny shores of Costa Brava with kids, you'd be hard pressed not to visit at least one of their many waterparks. With the hot Spanish sun overhead, a trip to one of these splash zones will be just what the doctor ordered.

Water World Lloret is the most popular waterpark in Costa Brava, and for good reason. This action-fuelled day out has a huge array of rides, from speed racer slides, to Hurricanes, Kamikazes, river rafts, and child-friendly water playgrounds and splash areas.

Aquadiver in Platja d'Aro is another wet and wild waterpark, with plenty of shady areas for picnics and several cafes selling cold drinks and ice cream.

Aerial Adventure Parks

There's no better way to enjoy Costa Brava's outdoors and beautiful scenery than by spending a day high above the trees in an aerial adventure park. Costa Brava Park Aventura lets you experience this outstanding region from new heights, with over 500 meters of ziplines in their treetop wonderland.

Located right in the heart of Costa Brava's forest, kids will love the adventure activities suspended between the trees.

Spend your day playing out your very own Tarzan fantasy, swing through the air, climb bridges, go through tunnels and zipline through the forest. This park has seven aerial trekking courses so you can choose which ones best suits your abilities and meets your heights threshold.

Catamaran cruise

Boat cruises are an excellent way to take in the views of Spain's north eastern shoreline and to find out why they call it the 'wild' or 'rugged coast'.

Much of Costa Brava is a designated nature reserve, meaning there's no building allowed and you can enjoy an unspoiled view. Sail past the rocky mountains, rough terrain, cliffs and lush forests. Look down below and spot the colourful fish and coral as your sail by.

Some catamarans also stop half way for swimming and snorkelling and provide a home cooked meal of paella.

Discover Barcelona

Costa Brava's cities have a lot to offer a family holiday, but maybe no more so than Barcelona.

Barcelona's busy streets are laden with exciting sight-seeing adventures around every turn, from historical cathedrals, to narrow streets meeting restaurant filled plazas, and a Gothic quarter with mesmerizing architecture.

There's also endless kid-friendly fun here, from science museums to the Zoo de Barcelona. For an extra childhood treat, visit the Museu de la Xocolata where your family can learn about the origins of chocolate making and even get to sample some goodies.
