The Costa Brava ( north of Catalonia)

The Costa Brava is a 160-kilometre stretch of beautiful, rugged coastline in the region of Catalonia in the North East corner of Spain. Natural beauty, endless miles of sandy beaches and summer sunshine. You'll find modern, international tourist resorts with high-rise hotels alongside unspoilt fishing villages, sheltered rocky coves and medieval towns with ancient castles. The Costa stretches from Blanes, North of Barcelona, to Roses near the French border.

It has 4 regions: L'Alt Empordá, Baix Empordá, La Selva and Girones.

Blanes, a harbour on the Costa Brava, the Wild Coast, at the border of the province of Barcelona, marks the beginning of the most light-filled part of the Costa Brava.

The Costa Brava is formed by a lot of little towns and small fishing ports like Cadaqués, which was the residence of Salvador Dalí. Calella de Palafrugell where you can listen to the famous habaneras in a festival celebrated once a year.

In the 200 kilometres we will find little Mediterranean towns like L'Escala, Palamos or Sant Feliu de Guixols.

You can visit the Parc natural de Cap de Creus or the Parc Natural Aiguamolls in L'Empordà, the Illes Medes in L'Estartit, the city of Roses and Empuries, the medieval cities like Pals and Peratallada, the ancient city of Tossa de Mar and the beautiful botanic gardens in Blanes and Lloret de Mar.

Marvellous beaches and many other entertainments will fill your time in the Costa Brava with an average annual temperature of 17º Celsius, moderate rain and 2500 sunny hours every year.
