Costa Brava

Located on a rugged stretch of coastline between Barcelona and the south of France, the Costa Brava is a versatile location which provides an array of activities for the whole family to enjoy. Visitors with children will particularly enjoy the family-friendly destinations of Platja D’Aro and Santa Susanna which offer plenty to keep youngsters amused. For more adult orientated adventures, the exciting resort of Lloret de Mar contains a plethora of bars and clubs in which to party the night away, whilst those looking for a more relaxed pace can head to the beautiful coastal resorts of Pineda de Mar and Malgrat de Mar.
