Costa Brava Travel Guide
Bound by the Mediterranean on one side and the Pyrenees on the other is Costa Brava, the 133 mile rugged coastline hugging the province of Gerona. Once a favourite vacation spot among painters, poets, writers and intellects, Costa Brava still has the same portrait-like appeal – just more to choose from. Its gothic remains and the soaring clock tower that hovers overhead characterize Blanes, a popular tourist resort. Of course Blanes offers what has come to be expected of a beach resort – sun, sand and sea but beyond that it has a history and culture that is beckoning to be cherished.
Lloret is perhaps the center of Costa Brava in the sense that it boasts the largest number of hotels along the coast and the liveliest nightlife. Its huge, coarse sand beach is outlined by bars, clubs and casinos creating an excellent vibe once the sun sets. If it’s purely beach that you’re after make your way to Tossa de Mar, once nicknamed ‘blue paradise’, this beach resort is famed as having the finest beach on the Costa Brava in addition to some seriously breathtaking scenery. For a quieter retreat with cozy coves and romantic hideaways head to the Begur Coast. Costa Brava - a little something for everyone.
