Costa Brava is on the northeast coast of Catalonia, Spain. Located 60km northeast of Barcelona. Costa is the Catalan and Spanish word for coast and Brava means rugged or wild. In the 1950s Spains Franco government identified this part of there coastline as suitable for substantial development as a holiday destination area for Northern Europe, especially the United Kingdom and France.
This was exploited because of the excellent beaches and very good summer climate with seaside resorts developed by large constructions of hotels and apartments. Resorts such as Blanes, Tossa de Mar, and Lloret de Mar. Tourism became the principal business of this part of the north-eastern coastline of Spain instead of fishing. If you are looking for more than sand, sun and sangria there are some real hidden gems along the same coastline between Roses and Tossa de Mar such as the small towns like Pals, Begur, Tamariu, SAgaro, Empuriabrava, Llafranc, LEstartit, Aigua Blava, Fornells, and Palamos all holding there more traditional look and values.
