Choosing a destination in Spain can be difficult to start with. Should you visit Madrid and the old capital city of Toledo? Should you hop to Barcelona, one of the most international cities of Europe? Discover the Arabic influences in Sevilla, Cordoba and Granada? They are all great destinations. But for a fun, relaxing time, there is no better region than la Costa Brava.
Here are a few reasons why.
The Best Camping Locations in Spain
When you decide to visit la Costa Brava in Spain, you will want to travel from one city to another. The distances are not long enough for you to change your accommodations, though. So, the best way to live such a trip, is to choose one of the best campings in Spain for your holidays. That way, on your days off from visiting, you can simply enjoy everything that is on the grounds, starting with pool complexes that you and your children will enjoy so much, you will still be dreaming of them when you get back home.
Best Food in Spain (and that says a lot)
Spain is known worldwide for its restaurants. They are often part of the very best around the world, in most gastronomical guides.
Some of them are from Barcelona. Lucky you, as the Costa Brava ends at the North East of this city. Therefore, it is worth cheating a little and spending a day there to enjoy some of the best food you will ever eat in your life. While roaming from town to town, look for dishes that are based on rice, as well as seafood plates. Don’t miss the pan Catalan which is bread on which a tomato was scraped, with a touch of oil to make it tastier.
When Europeans think of relaxing under the sun, lying on a sandy beach, they often refer to Spain as the best place to head to. La Costa Brava is part of the reason why. There you will find famous beaches as well as some that are still untouched. For those that needs a beach that is fully equipped to care for the needs of the little ones, there are plenty of those on the coast, to choose from. An advice: keep one day for Tossa de Mar. There you will discover three incredible beaches with a castle watching over them. How about that for a great day under the sun?
Tour Archaeological Sites
There is a little bit of everything in terms of ruins on la Costa Brava. It goes all the way back to 2,500 years before us. Greeks and Romans locations can be found in the ruins of Empúries. If you want to know the rituals of burials in the Iberian Peninsula, you will have to go to the settlement in Ullastreet. This will definitely bring you back in time, when life was quite different that it is today. Add to all these reasons the fact that the coast is full of beautiful medieval cities, and that the weather is nice, all year round. Now you know why you need to choose la Costa Brava for your next Spain holidays.
