The Costa Brava is a rugged 200 km long coastal strip on the northeastern coast of Spain, in the autonomous region of Catalonia.
The Costa Brava starts in the north, on the French-Spanish border just below the Pyrenees at the Spanish town of Portbou and extends in a southerly direction beyond the seaside resort of Blanes. The most important places on the Costa Brava are: Llanca,, Port de la Selva, Cadaqués, Rosas, L'Escala, Estartit, Begur, Aiguablava, Pals, Palamos, Calonge, Platja d'Aro, Santa Cristina d'Aro, Sant Feliu de Guixols, Tossa de Mar, Lloret de Mar and Blanes. The Costa Brava borders in the south on the Costa del Maresme with Barcelona and in the north on the border with France.
The Costa Brava is very popular with Dutch and Belgians. Easily accessible by car and a wonderful climate. The summers are warm, the temperature in July and August can reach 30 degrees and sometimes far above and the winters are mild. Most precipitation falls in the fall and in the winter. On the rocky coast you will find beautiful bays surrounded by pine trees with beautiful clear water. Wide sandy beaches are rare. In fact, the only two are the beaches in the huge Gulf of Roses and in the Gulf of Pals.
Behind the coast are beautiful places such as Girona and Besalu, Figueres with the Dali museum, the high mountains of the Pyrenees and of course the metropolis Barcelona.
