Coastal Settings

If you’re looking for a traditional Catalan vibe outside Barcelona, quaint whitewashed towns or vibrant resorts, you’ve come to the right place. Along the Costa Brava coast, you’ll find Calella de la Costa – a contrasting town made up of a traditional old quarter and a bustling town centre. Whichever side of town you’re heading to, there is a distinct laid-back feel and a myriad of clubs, bars and restaurants to discover.

For small-town charm, find yourself a place to stay in Tossa De Mar. With its traditional cobbled streets and an ancient castle, this area is one of the prettiest in the region and a great spot to settle on your holidays in Costa Brava. A sparkling gem on the Costa del Maresme, Pineda is perfectly placed for lazy breaks. Down by the water, you’ll find a quaint harbour with white sandy beaches stretched out the length of the coast – a great place to take a dip in the sea.

Family Friendly Spots

If you’re embarking on your holidays in Costa Brava with the kids or you’re just looking for thrill-seeking adventure, pay a visit to Port Aventura. The country’s biggest park, it is crammed full of white-knuckle rides and spectacular shows. Work your way around the five themed zones, embarking on whooping rollercoasters and plummeting adrenaline rides. If you’d rather something tamer, take a ride on the spinning teacups or take your pick from the shows – from can-can cabarets to acrobatics shows.

For quieter times on your Costa Brava holidays, take a trip to Santa Clotilde Gardens. Built at the start of the 20th century, they are set against the backdrop of a series of hillside terraces and are a great example of Italian Renaissance style. Meander your way through cypress trees, sculptures, fountains and ponds for a relaxing antidote to the hustle and bustle of the town centre.

Beautiful beaches and warm sands are sure to be an attractive notion on your holidays. Whether you want to bathe on the beautiful Mar Mernuda Beach with a cocktail in hand or strip off on the rocky sands of Boadella Beach – a favoured spot for naturists. If you fancy a spot of sailing, pay a visit to Platja Gran where you’ll have the opportunity to travel on a glass-bottomed boat. The ideal way to view a wealth of marine life without getting your feet wet, it will also keep the children amused for the afternoon.
