Cracking Holidays to Costa Brava
With the breathtaking beauty of the Catalan countryside and Lloret De Mar’s
lively, fun-loving vibe, a holiday in Costa Brava appeals to every type of traveller. On the one hand, the high spirits and throbbing neon nightlife of the area’s swaggering beach resorts generate the perfect scene to let off steam.
On the other hand, its rugged mountain scenery dotted with sleepy Spanish villages and fishing harbours provide the perfect setting for a chilled out Costa Brava getaway. With spectacular sweeps of golden sand, it’s no surprise that Costa Brava holidays are some of the best in the world.
An Ensemble Cast
Lloret de Mar is the principal player in the Costa Brava’s dazzling cast and with its buzzing bars, traditional old town and silky sands, it doesn’t take a genius to work out why. Chock-a-block with water-sports and restaurants, its outstanding golden beach is the life and soul of the town.
Away from the bass-thumping nightlife of its bigger neighbours, you’ll find laid back beaches with plenty of elbow room in low key Santa Susanna
. An upmarket fisherman’s town, Tossa de Mar is a tangle of cobbled streets and pristine coastline. With well-preserved medieval ruins, this is the perfect place for laid back Costa Brava holidays.
Kick Back and Unwind
With its unspoiled stretches of dazzling, sun-drenched shores, the beaches are the main attraction during Costa Brava holidays. From uncluttered pint-sized parcels to sweeping palm-fringed seascapes, a lazy day on the beach will never be far from a brimming menu of world-class distractions. If you’re not resisting the speedboats and water-skiers carving up the clear turquoise waters, you’ll be riding the nerve-shattering roller coasters of the world famous PortAventura theme park.
If you can bear to leave your bucket and spade behind, the sister cities of Girona and Barcelona are just a stones throw away. Kick off a tour of Barcelona with a visit to the Camp Nou, the home of Barcelona FC, and admire a hotbed of ground-breaking art and architecture. Behind its medieval walls, Girona is a spine-tingling hoard of 14th churches and roman ruins. Framed by the majestic Catalan mountains, you’ll feel you’re walking in a timeless world.
