THE COSTA BRAVA

THE COSTA BRAVA

 

 

Like a canvas where nature has intended to combine with exquisite delicacy the intense green of the pine groves, the massive steadfastness of the rocks, the softness of the golden sands and the deep, dazzling blue of the sea - that is the Costa Brava.

From Blanes to Portbou, the list of things to do includes the Cap de Creus Natural Park, with the monastery of Sant Pere de Rodes and the village of Cadaqués, the marshes of the Aiguamolls de l’Empordà Natural Park and the Medes Islands Marine Reserve, and unique settings such as Roses bay, the ruins of Empúries, the coves of Begur and Palafrugell, Sant Sebastià lighthouse, Cap Roig gardens, the Old Town of Tossa de Mar and the Santa Clotilde, Pinya de Rosa and Marimurtra botanical gardens, between Lloret and Blanes.

Do not forget to visit the shopping and leisure centres at Roses, L’Escala, L’Estartit, Palamós, Platja d’Aro, Sant Feliu de Guíxols, Lloret de Mar and Blanes.

Our route will lead us to discover places such as Peralada – with its castle and casino –, Figueres, with its museum devoted to the universal artist Salvador Dalí, medieval villages such as Pals, Peratallada and Púbol, the pottery shops at La Bisbal, the scenery of the Pla de l’Estany county with its capital Banyoles, and the city of Girona, with its cathedral and internationally famous Jewish Quarter.

And on top of all this, one of the features we can display with greatest pride is the quality of our beaches and coastal waters, the result of considerable work put into quality monitoring and water treatment which has over and over again been accoladed for its quality by the European Environmental Education Foundation, as seen from the many blue flags which flutter in the breeze along our coastline.In addition, the beaches of Lloret de Mar and Fenals have obtained the “Q” certificate of tourism quality awarded by the ICTE, and the beaches of Santa Margarida, Salatar, El Rastell, La Nova, La Punta, Canyelles-Bonifaci and L'Almadrava (in Roses) and those of Sant Antoni, Cala Cristus-Ses Torretes, Torre Valentina and Es Monestri (in Calonge) have won the EMAS environmental quality certificate.
