The Greatest family Vacation to in Spia

The Top of the Costa Brava

The Costa Brava is placed in northeastern Spain, in the province of Gerona. It is well-known for the many resort towns such as Lloret de Mar and Banes. Apart from those resort towns though there are also many unknown gems on the Costa Brava. Charming seaside towns, typical fishing villages, impressive cliffs, diverse beaches and quaint coves.
The Costa Brava is a diverse and beautiful region with a very rich history. The area boasts significant ruins, dating back to Roman, Greek and even Paleolithic times. Additionally there are many medieval villages and castles on the Costa Brava.

A selection of towns worth visiting on the Costa Brava:
  • Roses, a historic town dating back to the 8th century BC, with a notable seafaring tradition. Roses is the only coastal town on the Costa Brava that faces west, which means it offers great sunsets.
  • Pals, a medieval town on top of a hill, overlooking its main city beach, Plata de Pals. It is not as well-known as most beach resorts but with its pretty cobbled streets, craft shops and traditional bars and restaurants it is a lovely place to visit.
  • Begun a medieval village with cobbled streets and whitewashed houses located below the ruins of a stone castle. Begun is great for water sports such as snorkeling and kayaking, thanks to its many coves and its proximity to the Medes Islands, which are a marine reserve and a popular location for scuba diving.
  • Calella de Palafrugell, an attractive fishing village with beautiful whitewashed houses and narrow streets. It is considered to be one of the most beautiful villages on the entire Mediterranean, offering rocky coves, sandy beaches and excellent fish restaurants.
  • Tossa de Mar, a cute town with cobbled streets, constructed around an impressive medieval castle. The surrounding countryside with its valleys and rivers is a great place to hike and cycle and the city beach is perfect for a day of relaxing with the family.
  • Blanes, one of the most popular seaside resorts on the Costa Brava. It still retains its original charm though. Its harbor, sandy bays and small rocky coves, historical buildings and the botanical gardens are well worth checking out.
Costa Brava’s Best Beaches

The Costa Brava’s coastline is almost 300 kilometers (186 miles) long and very varied, with wide bays, lesser coves and high cliffs. Whether you are looking for a beautiful stretch of golden sand or a tiny, hidden cove, you can find it here.
The whitewashed town of Tamariu boasts one of the greatest attractive sandy beaches of the Costa Brava: Platja de Tamariu. It has great water sports services and connects to several smaller coves. The village of Cadaqués is home to the Cap de Creus Nature Reserve which forms a series of beautiful, unspoiled coves. Or, check out Empuriabrava, which offers some of the Costa Brava’s widest and longest beaches with excellent facilities.
La Cala del Golfet, in Calella de Palafrugell, is another stunning beach worth visiting. But there are so many beautiful beaches that it is impossible for me to choose a favorite. I therefore highly recommend exploring as many different beaches as you can if you decide to take your family vacation in Spain to the Costa Brava!

Costa Brava’s food

The Costa Brava is well known for its cuisine and boasts an amazing number of really great restaurants.
Costa Brava’s cuisine generally consists of fish and seafood, olives, fresh vegetables, pasta, rice and olive oil. But, since the north of the Costa Brava is close to the Pyrenees, there are also excellent meat and game dishes. And, being such a popular travel destination, you can find many global dishes here as well and enough variety to keep everyone in the family joyful.
