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
