Cataluña, Spain Travel & Accommodation Guide - Costa Brava

Hotels & Resorts on the Costa Brava, Spain - Blanes, Empuria Brava, L'Estartit & Malgrat de Mar

Village of Cadaques, Costa Brava, Catalunya (Catalonia) (Cataluna), Spain, Europe
The Costa Brava - a coastal region of north-eastern Catalunya, Spain, in the comarques of Alt Empordà and Baix Empordà, in the province of Girona. Costa is the Spanish and Catalan word for 'coast', and "Brava" means "Rugged".  Originally a fishing area, the Costa was developed for tourism in 1950.  The area has an excellent summer climate and lovely beaches.  Whilst part of the Costa Brava coastline offers itself to tourist developments on a very large scale, other areas have retained a more traditional look and have become "hidden gems" for visitors who want a little more than sun, sand and sangria. Small towns like Cadaqués have attracted artists such as Salvador Dali and Pablo Picasso and are now fashionable resorts. As well as the major resorts featured below, the coast between Roses and Tossa de Mar has many delightful small coastal towns such as Pals, Begur, Tamariu, Calella, Llafranc, and Aigua Blava.
