The Costa Brava is a very interesting part of Spain which stretches from Blanes to the border with France. Although the name translates into rugged or wild, it has many fine beaches and sheltered coves that are perfect for those seeking a relaxing seaside break. This historic area has many old towns and medieval villages set in a stunning landscape. Less than forty miles from Barcelona, visitors have the opportunity to visit this exciting city and to explore its wonderful sights and tourist attractions.
The Costa Brava resorts began life in the fifties when the cheap package holiday industry was just developing. Requiring only a short flight from Britain and guaranteeing hot summer sunshine were its two greatest attractions and it didn't take long for the tourist industry to take over from fishing as a major contributor to the local economy. The number of resorts, each with their own strengths and charm mean that there is a cheap Costa Brava holiday to satisfy all ages and interests. Lloret de Mar is the largest resort as well as the liveliest and although it is a favourite with young adults, it is also very popular with families as there is good provision of child-centred attractions. The region has many golf courses and great walking and cycling trails through national parks. The larger resorts offer a variety of water sports from fun rides on inflatable bananas and sofas to the more exhilarating jet skiing and kite surfing. The many rocky coves with their clear water are great for diving and snorkelling.
