Stretching from the French border to the greenery just north of Barcelona, the Costa Brava is an awe-inspiring region full of beautiful beaches, rugged coastline, and dramatic cliffs – it’s the perfect place for a relaxing beach holiday. Famous resorts of Lloret de Mar and Calella are popular holiday destinations and a few minutes spent on their beaches shows why.
A place where artists and holidaymakers have flocked to for centuries, Costa Brava is as much a place of sheer natural beauty as it is a beach holiday destination. The carvings of the coastline have created numerous coves where charming villages and golden beaches inhabit the banks. Here, you can experience the life and spirit of rural Catalonia as well as the more developed attractions in and around Lloret de Mar – a popular beach resort.
Catalonia and the Costa Brava are full of enchanting sights, buildings and museums, catering to all interests. Stroll through the wonderful gardens of the Pinya de Rosa and Jardins de Santa Clotilde near Lloret de Mar, visit Salvador Dali’s surreal house and the equally imaginative Dali Museum in Cadaques, explore the ancient ruins of Empúries and, of course, there’s always the opportunity to dart off to Barcelona for the day for the architectural and cultural gems of the metropolis. The Costa Brava consists of sun, beaches, cliffs, pine-clad hills, layered with lots of Catalonian charm and quaint villages. A stunning piece of live art that can be enjoyed as it unfurls before you.
The Peralada Festival, a music and dance festival held in the grounds of a picturesque romantic castle, is unlike anything you will experience anywhere else, and is emblematic of the kind of place this is. If you are fortunate enough to experience it for yourself, you will understand what makes Costa Brava holidays so special. Just take a single look at the uniquely beautiful landscapes here and you will understand why Dali found them so inspirational; in fact, you might even recognise some of the formations from some of his better-known works.
