Your guide to Costa Brava holidays
Regardless of how long you plan on staying on holiday in Costa Brava for, you won't get bored of exploring the coastal region. Even when you are done visiting Costa Brava's main attractions, all it takes is a car, bus, or taxi ride to one of the nearby resorts for an even deeper insight into Catalonian culture.
Smell the aromatic fragrances of tropical plants from around the world when you visit Jardin Botanico Marimurtra. This botanical garden overlooks the ocean and is positioned next to the Gran Casino. Nearby is Marineland Catalunya, the imposing ruins of a Romanesque monastery, and the Castle of Pubol. Famous painter Salvador Dali once lived inside the castle-turned museum with his wife!
You might be surprised to discover just how beautiful the beaches of Costa Brava actually are. With their rugged mountain backdrop, crystal clear waters, and surrounding greenery, it is not surprising that the landscape inspired a great deal of Salvador Dali's artwork.
During your Spanish getaway, pack a bag and admire the Bay of Roses from Empuriabrava beach. Finding a patch of sand to sunbathe on will not be a problem since the beach is 90 metres wide and over 1,500 metres long. Tamariu is another unspoilt beach and it features a promenade, much like El Canadell. The pebble beach at El Port de la Selva is worth a visit, as is Cap de Creus with its natural rock pools and Sa Caleta, with its hilltop castle.
