The rugged coast
Stretching between the town of Blanes and the French border, Costa Brava is the belle of Spain’s coastal ball. The march of tourism that stormed through the Costa del Sol and Costa Blanca lost a bit of steam by the time it reached the country’s north eastern wing. As a result, it’s relatively unspoilt. In between bigger resorts like Lloret de Mar and Tossa de Mar, for example, you’ll still find secluded coves, fishing villages and authentic countryside towns.
Blue Flag beaches
That’s if you want them, of course. Most people visiting the Costa Brava don’t make it beyond the beach. And you can’t blame them. The Costa Brava’s seaside is dripping with Blue Flag beaches – the best of which can be found in Lloret de Mar. The sandy stretch here is the life and soul of the resort. It’s 1.5 kilometres long, its sea is chock-a-block with water sport opportunities, and it’s right near loads of bars and restaurants.
Girona and Barcelona
It’s no secret that part of the Costa Brava’s pulling power comes from is town and city double act – Girona and Barcelona. The first – an hour’s drive from Lloret de Mar – is a hoarder of historical sites, like ancient Roman ruins and 14th-century churches. The second is a hotbed of ground breaking art, architecture and technology that’s years ahead of its time, and it’s just over an hour away along the coast.
