Costa Brava

Costa Brava is the coastal area of Spain that begins in Blanes (north of Barcelona) and ends at the border with France, near Portbou. It has an extension of 214 kilometers of coastline.


About the climate, Costa Brava has a Mediterranean climate with an average annual temperature ranging between 14 °C and 20 °C.  July and August are the hottest months, reaching maximums of 35°C. Not having a harsh winter, tourists can visit it all year round and enjoy long walks along the coast and visit the beautiful coves.

Most of Costa Brava’s beaches have obtained the Blue Flag granted by the European Foundation for Environmental Education, which makes them free of pollution and very crystal-clear waters in which it is a pleasure to bathe. The best beaches are Lloret de Mar, Tamariu in Palafrugell, Cala Cristos-Cala Gogo de Calonge, La Fosca de Palamós and Mar Menuda de Tosa de Mar. Another characteristic feature of the Costa Brava is the impressive cliffs that give way to beautiful coves or hidden beaches surrounded by vegetation.

For nature lovers, the Costa Brava has two important natural parks: the Natural Park of Cabo de Creus and the Natural Park of the Marshes of the Empordà. These protected areas have a wide variety of biodiversity that can be appreciated all year round.

Not to be missed:

  • Visit Cadaqués, one of the most beautiful villages in Catalonia and Salvador Dalí’s favorite. It is a charming old fishing village thanks to the good conservation of its narrow streets and white houses. The promenade together with its colorful wooden boats seems to be taken from a fairytale. We recommend a walking route to the lighthouse of Cap de Creus and visit the House Museum of Salvador Dalí.
  • The Costa Brava has a series of trails called ‘Los Caminos de Ronda’, these routes allow you to visit along the Mediterranean Sea through beaches, villages, natural parks, beautiful cliffs, and hidden coves. While once used to alert people to pirates’ arrival and pursue contraband, these trails have become an important tourist attraction for tourists today. We recommend the paths from Sant Feliu de Guíxols to S’Agaró, Calella de Palafrugell to Llafranc and Sant Antoni de Calonge to Platja d’Aro.
  • Scuba diving in the Medes Islands, a Protected National Natural Park that has seven islands in front of L’Estastitu Beach. The Medes Islands offer stunning views of coral reefs, with much multi-colored fish. There is also the possibility of snorkeling or sailing in the typical tourist boats with glass bottoms.
