The Costa Brava is sun, beach, coves, tranquility and authentic paradises hidden among cliffs. Walks along the coastal footpaths and the fishing villages, visits to medieval villages and natural parks. The sea and the mountains, the vineyards and the best of Mediterranean cuisine and culture. And all this, just one hour far from Barcelona. How does all of that sound to you? Get ready and book your next vacation on the Costa Brava, you should live it.
The Costa Brava is full of coves and beaches of exceptional characteristics. They are beaches to live them, to bathe, to sunbathe and relax. But you can also practice nautical activities to discover the seabed or enjoy the charm of the small coves: diving, kayaking, sailing, windsurfing, paddle surfing, snorkeling ... you can even do a boat trip to spend a few hours at sea , and know our coast from the sea.
Anchovies of the Escala, prawns of Palamós, sea urchins, sardines, rice of Pals, mushrooms, escudella soup, oil, wines of the DO Empordà, cottage cheese of Fonteta, fritters... the combination of the sea and the mountain is the distinctive feature of the cuisine of the Costa Brava. The encounter between traditional cuisine, culinary techniques, creativity and innovation, has formed a firmament of Michelin stars on the Costa Brava.
