Spain’s Costa Brava, the stunning stretch of coastline north of Barcelona, is a well-kept secret of those who know the area well and escape to it from the urban bustle. From historic fishing villages to larger resort towns, here’s how to best experience the region on a day trip from Barcelona.

Group Tours
Discover hidden pockets of the area alongside the region’s main but small city, Girona. You’ll have time for a guided hike on one of many paths, or opt for a dip in the Mediterranean Sea. Guides arrange a local gourmet meal for the small group as well.

Private Tours
If you’re seeking a more customized or intimate Costa Brava experience, private tours allow for a deeper dive into the region’s rich culture and history based on your interests. Everything from hidden medieval villages and cliffs to smaller coastal paths can be seen in just one day, at your own pace.

Things to Know
  • There are many seaside villages and small towns along the Costa Brava. Tossa de Mar, Cadaques, and Lloret de Mar are more well known, while places like Calella de Palafrugell and Llafranc have kept their rustic charm.
  • Hiking is particularly popular in the area, and the Cami de Ronda is its most beaten coastal path.
  • The region is known for its rich culinary heritage and exquisite cuisine, so be sure to sample as many local foods as possible.
