If you’re looking to make the most of the coast, you’re in luck here. These shores come with resorts of all kinds, from the chilled chiringuitos along the coastline to fun-oriented towns typically ticking all the holiday boxes. Wherever you choose, sunbathing on gorgeous sands and swimming in gleaming waters is guaranteed.
The Costa Brava isn’t known as the ‘Wild Coast’ for nothing. It’s famous for its dramatic cliffs and untamed natural beauty – both spanning right across the lush shoreline. But there are plenty of incredible golden beaches sprinkled out along the seafront, so pick a place to spread out those towels. Sporty types, you’ll be in cycling and water sports heaven around these parts.
Food, glorious food
Calling all foodies – this is the Costa for you. The surrounding region has the highest concentration of Michelin stars in all of Spain and is also home to one of the world’s best restaurants. Catalan cuisine is a moreish mix of mountain meets sea, often in a stew. And the lush mountain valleys here are home to flourishing vineyards that produce cava too.
