Overview

Literally translated as the ‘wild coast’, the Costa Brava on Spain’s northeastern shore is characterised by its rugged coastline that gives way to gorgeous stretches of golden beach, charming Spanish towns and well-kept golf courses. Just a 2-hour flight from the UK, the region boasts modern resorts, great facilities and some of the best Blue Flag beaches in Europe, all within easy reach of Barcelona.

Things to Do

The Costa Brava's beaches are its main appeal. Whether you’re looking for vast stretches of golden sand right in front of your resort or enjoy discovering rocky coves off the beaten track, you’ll find one of the most spectacular coastlines in Europe. Families will enjoy watersports on the beaches and Water World in Lloret de Mar, and there are easy coastal walks between the resorts suitable for all ages.

Food and Drink

Dining out is very much part of everyone’s holiday and you won't be disappointed by what Costa Brava has to offer. You can keep the costs to a minimum by staying in an all inclusive resort, or eat out at tapas bars and seafood restaurants by the beach. Finish off your meal with a visit to an ice cream parlour, or a jug of sangria at a local bar.
