Costa Brava

Book cheap holidays to Costa Brava.

 

The gorgeous Costa Brava holiday coastline runs for 100 miles (160km) along the coasts of Catalonia in Spain's north-eastern corner, from Port Bou on the Franco-Spanish border to Tossa del Mar, just north of Barcelona. The seashore is occupied with high-rise hotel developments and modern-day marinas catering to package holiday-makers, but preserves enough green hillsides and lonely, wild cliffs, coves and caves to belie its reputation as one of Europe's busiest holiday destinations.


Tourists revel in the concealed delights of the rugged coast, numerous venturing out in boats to discover deserted coves scented with pine and citrus trees, fragrant herbs and bright flowers. Popular resorts and marinas lie in close distance to fairly unspoilt fishing villages and towns, which, along with some old castles and fortifications, are evidence of the area's rich history. International scuba divers revel in the abundance of wrecks to explore in the crystalline waters, while seemingly endless sunshine pours down on stretches of sandy or shingle beach.

The undeveloped natural areas and fishing industry have also resulted in making a holiday here a gastronomic treat. Seafood reigns supreme, from sardines to delicious lobster, but specialities also include local wild game, like boar, duck and rabbit, which can all be washed down with a variety of wines produced from the vineyards that clothe the hillsides.
 

The allure of the Costa Brava is the combination of crowded, manicured resorts, and rugged unspoilt coastline, offering tourists the best of both worlds: great amenities and luxury, as well as natural beauty. There are a number of Blue Flag beaches along the Costa Brava, and also some secluded, rocky coves.

The glorious beaches, in combination with the renowned food and restaurant scene makes the Costa Brava ideal for resort holidays, and the most popular destinations include Roses, Lloret de Mar and Blanes. Tossa de Mar, a smaller, more authentic coastal resort village, is also a delight, and the bigger centres of Girona and Banyoles offer many attractions. There are some wonderful coastal walks and numerous golf courses to enjoy in Costa Brava, as well as many fun water sports.

There is also some quality cultural and historical sightseeing for those interested, including some impressive Roman and Iberian archaeological sites. The famous archaeological site of Empuries, a Greco-Roman site with extensive ruins, is the highlight for many visitors, and the nearby medieval village of Sant Marti d'Empuries is also lovely to explore.

Costa Brava is Dali country and there are three museums to visit for fans of the artist, including the fascinating Salvador Dali Museum House near Cadaques.

There are no health risks associated with travel to Spain, and no vaccination certificates are required for entry. Medical facilities are good in Spain, but comprehensive travel insurance is always advised. Spain has a reciprocal health agreement with most EU countries, including the UK, providing emergency health care for EU travellers on the same terms as Spanish nationals. EU travellers should take a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC).

Note that the scheme gives no entitlement to medical repatriation costs, nor does it cover ongoing illnesses of a non-urgent nature, so comprehensive travel insurance is still advised. Travellers should take any medication they require along with them, in its original packaging and accompanied by a signed and dated letter from a doctor detailing what it is and why it is needed.
