Direct flights to Girona tend to be around 2 and a half hours long.
Tossa de Mar is at its busiest and best from spring until autumn. Temperatures reach the high 20s and sometimes into the low 30s throughout this period making it a very reliable destination to visit in terms of the climate. Prices tend to be slightly cheaper outside of these months from autumn to spring and there is actually still plenty to do here in the off-season. However, most people prefer relaxing on the beach or taking a stroll through the town in the splendid warmer temperatures, so we recommend a spring or autumn trip specifically.
One of the best places to visit in Tossa de Mar is Vila Vella which is the old town part of the resort. This place is the only entirely surviving fortified medieval town along the coast of Catalonia and as well as a deep and fascinating history, it also boasts fantastic views over the sea. The old town also has a number of bars, restaurants and cafes that integrate into the place quite nicely. Tossa de Mar is also famous for its wide selection of sandy beaches. The main beach in the town is Playa Grande (literally meaning “big beach”) and it is always buzzing with activity, especially in the peak season. You can relax on this long stretch of sand or take a day-trip on one of the glass-bottomed boats from here.
The accommodation options in Tossa de Mar are everything that you would expect from a developed sunshine resort that has plenty of things to do and see. There are budget hotels, more luxurious options, villas and apartments that are all situated in great locations - either a stone-throw from the beach, old town or both!
