The beaches that stretch from Blanes, just north east of Barcelona, to the French border, all belong to the Costa Brava. Holidays here can easily combine relaxing on the Mediterranean shores and visiting the vibrant city of Barcelona.
The main airport for Costa Brava flight arrivals is Girona. Handily, it's fairly centrally located along the Costa Brava so holidays here don't have very lengthy transfers. Once you arrive, bus transfers are an easy and cheap way to get to your hotel wherever you are along the coast.
Tossa de Mar is the most popular resort, thanks to its two blue flag beaches, but Lloret de Mar isn't far behind. If you fancy mixing sunbathing by day with dancing by night, then try Calella de la Costa. For family-friendly fun, anywhere near PortAventura as great as it's easy to have a day out at this very popular park.
Kids old and young won't want to miss a trip to PortAventura - here you'll find a water park plus plenty of adrenaline rides, as well as calmer ones! Spending time on the beaches, enjoying the local water sports, and eating fantastic food fresh from the sea will surely take up most of your time on holiday in the Costa Brava. But spare a day to visit Barcelona with its stunning architecture.
