Day Trips to Costa Brava from Barcelona
Costa Brava is one of the most appraised and visited parts of Spain. It offers everything from beautiful long beaches on the coast of Mediterranean sea to mysterious ruins from Greek and Roman times.
Take a walk across Camí de Ronda, an ancient winding path and enjoy the view of never-ending turquoise sea horizon. Visit Medes islands archipelago famous for being invaded by pirates and its marine life hidden in mysterious underwater caves. Costa Brava won't dissapoint any visitors who enjoy nature sports – kayaking and hiking are the best options for all those who want a bit of adrenaline. For younger poeple it's attractive to visit Lloret de Mar – it's a popular tourist city where you can combine modern city living in terms of going to restaurants, clubs and shopping but also enjoy the laid-back life by visiting its beautiful beaches and gardens. If you want to know more about town's culture there are many options such as visiting The Maritime Museum or the Castle of Saint Joan, the origin of the city itself. Alongside Lloret de Mar, there's a number of other small towns worth visiting such as Calella de Palafrugell and Llafranc. These two charming coastal towns are both within a walking distance of each other and make for an excellent choice for enjoying a day in the sun and relaxing on the beach.
Costa Brava also holds a real treat for lovers of Greek and Roman history. Empúries is an archaeological site holding cherished remains of both civilizations and seeing them in person will definitely give you a unique perception of its ancient history and people that lived there centuries ago. All the possibilites of Costa Brava don't end there. Places like medieval town Pals and Peratallada are bound to amaze by their simple beauty as you walk in a maze of old streets adorned with flowers and imposing arches.
Perhaps the greatest advantage of Costa Brava is the possibility to visit many spectacular places all in one day. Join the adventure and discover what makes Costa Brava so special in the eyes of the world.

Tours to Costa Brava from Barcelona
We went on the Costa brava half day tour last week and enjoyed it very much. The booking process was really easy with happytovisit.com. in fact we initially tried to book via the travel provider but there were issues on their site. The bus left on time and the guides (Michel and Antoni) were both very good. the bus was airconditioned and quite comfortable. Michel was the English guide and he was very informative & friendly. He was also patient with my elderly mother who couldn't walk fast enough and ensured he slowed down for her. The boat ride to Tosse de mar was lovely and the island is breathtaking. The only disappointment for us was Lloret de mar where we were just dropped off to be on our own for 1 hour and honestly, there isn't much to see/do there. we left on time as well and overall I would highly recommend this tour.
