Why go to Costa Brava

Touch down on Costa Brava holidays and it quickly becomes clear why it translates to the ‘wild’ or ‘rough coast’. The staggeringly rugged shoreline has pockets of turquoise coves and huge fluffy white sand beaches that never go out of fashion. Stretching from just north of Barcelona to the border with France, the sunny climate of the Costa Brava and its postcard-perfect beaches made it one of Spain’s very first package holiday destinations. In fact, savvy sun-worshippers have been descending on this got-it-all corner of Spain since the 1950s.

Costa Brava holidays blend old and new

The modern and traditional go about their lives happily hand-in-hand on the Costa Brava.

Picturesque fishing villages cling to the rocky shoreline, their crumbling fishermen’s houses and narrow lanes giving them an old-world charm. Modern, all-inclusive Costa Brava holidays are easy to find in resorts such as Blanes and Lloret de Mar, while upmarket hotels, spas and golf courses provide luxury Costa Brava holidays by the (gold-plated) bucket load.

Postcard-worthy towns such as Tossa de Mar and La Pineda tread a very tricky line, managing to be popular tourist holiday destinations with a range of amenities without sacrificing their traditional appeal.

Both are firm favourites for those in search of cheap holidays to the Costa Brava in 2020.

Away from the coast

A Costa Brava holiday doesn’t have to mean sandy toes.

Girona, the regional capital, is a vibrant little city with a beautiful medieval centre, great shopping and authentic tucked-away tapas bars.

In the north of the Costa Brava, the Gulf of Roses harbours an important nature reserve.

For a taste of the ultra-modern, visit the flashy marina of Empuriabrava, where you’ll find gleaming superyachts, bars, restaurants and a buzzing nightlife scene. 

Medieval charm

The Costa Brava is also up to its neck in history and culture.

Roman archaeological sites, imposing castles and walled medieval towns such as Begur, Peratallada and Tossa de Mar are woven into the scenery.

And if you didn’t know much about Salvador Dalí before you visit the Costa Brava, you certainly will before you leave. It’s the birthplace of Spain’s most famous artist; his home in the beautiful and bohemian village of Cadaqués has been preserved for all to visit. There is also a museum dedicated to his life and works among the quaint little jumble of houses of Figueres.

*ATOL (Air Travel Organiser's Licence) is a financial protection scheme for package holidays: It provides support to consumers in the event their holiday provider collapses. Booking with an ATOL holder ensures that you won't be left out of pocket and you won't be left stranded abroad. All package holidays compared using TravelSupermarket are protected by ATOL.

ABTA (Association of British Travel Agents) offers similar cover for packages booked with its members. However, while ATOL predominantly covers flight-based packages, ABTA covers non-flight based holidays (such as rail and cruise) and linked travel arrangements. If you are unsure whether or not your trip is covered by ABTA, check with your provider.
