Reasons to visit the Costa Brava

Catalonia's most well known "costa" has to be the Costa Brava which stretches from the French border to just north of Barcelona and is in the province of Girona. The Costa Brava was Spain's first package tour destination for northern Europeans and has remained popular but fortunately (with the exception of a few resorts) is still unspoilt.

The picturesque coastline has inspired many artists and writers over the years and it is easy to see why - beautiful crystal-clear waters meeting rocky promontories and little sandy coves backed by pine-clad cliffs and fishing villages. Inland is just as charming with pretty medieval villages, castles and other monuments scattered about the fertile countryside.

Worth visiting in this area is the Dalí museum in Figueras, the medieval village of Pals, and on the coast the beautiful bays of Tamariu, Aigua Blava, Calella de Palafrugell and Llanfranc.
