Translated as the Rugged Coast, Costa Brava has long been a favourite among British holidaymakers. It’s hardly surprising when you explore all that Costa Brava has to offer. As with most tourist destinations in Spain Costa Brava offers a fine selection of beaches, from long swathes of sand to shingled, secluded coves, perfect for relaxing with a bit of much needed peace and quiet. Those seeking the aforementioned peace and quiet will be happy in one of the traditional fishing villages, where tourists are few and far between and there’s not a plate of fried egg and chips in sight, whilst those looking for excitement and entertainment will be better served by visiting one of the livelier resorts like Lloret de Mar and Tossa de Mar.
For entertainment while staying in Costa Brava there is the exhilarating Portaventura theme park which offers a selection of adrenaline fuelled rides to keep visitors of all ages occupied throughout the day. The park also offers a variety of shows and some great places to eat, so even those who don’t like being flung around on large rides will find something they’ll enjoy.
The evenings in Costa Brava are also full of fun with great food available from tapas bars and restaurants, varying from the traditional tapas we’re all accustomed too to the delicious Catalonian cuisine, which features gorgeous fish stews and delectable traditional dishes. For those who want to try something a little more recognisable then there are a number of international restaurants around to enjoy.
Costa Brava is also great for those who want two holidays in one. Why not make your way to Barcelona where the architecture and shopping are sure to delight those looking to get away from the beach.
