Costa Brava, situated in the northeast of Catalonia, boasts 60 kilometres of beautiful beaches, stretching all the way to the French border. Lining these strips of sand are picturesque towns, such as l´Escala, Cadaqués, Calella de Palafrugell and Llançà, many of which maintain an authentic Catalan ambience. Costa Brava is a tranquil area of Catalonia, and is popular with holidaymakers and residents of Barcelona, looking to escape the bustling city.
As well as popular holiday destinations such as Lloret de Mar, the region is also home to some amazing scenery and landscapes of natural beauty such as the Cap de Creus Natural Park, the Empordà Wetlands and the Medes Islands.
Along the Costa Brava coastline, you will find many fantastic bars, cafés and restaurants, as well as a whole host of entertainment options such as water parks, aquatic zoos and endless sights and attractions including museums, churches, plus plenty more. If it´s a cultural experience you´re after, then don´t miss a trip to the house of Salvador Dalí in Port Lligat and the Dalí Museum in Figueres.
Costa Brava is also known for its many colourful events, ranging from top music festivals like the Cap Roig Festival to massive flower shows. The beautiful towns and beaches of the region are all easily accessible from Barcelona by train or bus, but an apartment in Costa Brava is a great option for those looking to enjoy a memorable holiday by the sea.
