Between the adventures a world of relaxation awaits, complete with peaceful Blue Flag beaches, pretty botanical gardens and reliable sunshine all year round.

Whether you love hiking, cycling, extreme sports or just a great view, holidays to the Costa Brava deliver a serious dose of natural beauty. Roam the foothills of the Pyrenees, explore vast wetland lagoons, marvel at extinct volcanoes or find a hidden beauty spot in Girona’s Cap de Creus Natural Park.

Top 5 things to do  in Costa Brava

Top 5 things to do in Costa Brava

Immaculate beaches often steal the headlines, but the Costa Brava’s fascinating history and unique scenery have much to offer.

  • Enter the surrealist world of Salvador Dalí at three museums dedicated to his life. Located in Figueres, Portlligat and Púbol, each are as quirky and colourful as the Spanish artist himself.
  • The Botanical Gardens of Santa Clotilde, Marimurtra and Cap Roig are straight out of a film set. A wonderful blend of cascading greenery and exotic plants, set against the turquoise sea.
  • The historic town of Roses is pretty in name and nature. Ancient citadels, Renaissance castles and hidden swimming coves tempt beach lovers and culture vultures alike.
  • Impressive cities also call the Costa Brava home. Girona’s full of medieval architecture, while Barcelona’s boundless culture makes for a top city break.
  • If you’re after a cheap holiday to the Costa Brava, Lloret de Mar’s many resorts have everything you need. All inclusive hotels spill onto golden beaches, backed by bargain bars.
History on the Costa Brava

History on the Costa Brava

The Costa Brava’s rich history remains a huge draw for visitors, with medieval castles, Roman forts and ancient treasures scattered along the coast.

  • Built around a 12th century castle, Tossa de Mar is pure Mediterranean romance. Preserved fortifications surround this ancient town, a maze of cobbled streets and Moorish architecture.
  • The ruins of Empúries are not one, but two ancient Greek and Roman cities side by side. From tiny mosaics to large amphitheatres, grab an audio guide and let history spring to life around you.
  • The largest bastion fort in Europe sits high on a hill overlooking Figueres. Sant Ferran Castle is an incredible display of military history; don’t miss boating through the underground canals!
  • For years civilisations have flocked to Caldes de Malavella for its thermal springs. View the Roman bath remains, then dip your toes in the luxurious spa resorts’ geothermal pools.
  • Filled with medieval architecture, Roman archways and sun kissed squares, Pals is perhaps the most picturesque town on the Costa Brava and dates back to the 9th century.
