How to Spend 3 Days in Costa Brava
Along with the Costa Blanca and the Costa del Sol, the Costa Brava (or ‘Rugged Coast’) is one of Spain’s three most popular holiday coasts. And it’s no wonder: with its endless sandy beaches, quaint villages and dramatic cliffs, this long stretch of Catalan coastline is, quite simply, spectacular.

Like a destination from your wildest Mediterranean dreams, the Costa Brava ticks all the boxes: beaches, incredible diving spots, ocean-fresh seafood, and a proud artistic heritage. Look past the overdeveloped resorts, and get to know the real Costa Brava in three days.

Day 1: Underwater Delights and Monastic Heights
Arriving at the Costa Brava, divers will think they’re in paradise. The best-known of the coast’s many dive spots is one-time pirates’ lair, the Illes Medes. Located off L'Estartit, this group of protected islets boasts some wonderfully diverse marine life. For the spiritually-inclined, Montserrat is unmissable. Perched majestically on a holy mountain, this Benedictine monastery is famous for its black Madonna (La Moreneta) and the exquisite wine made by its monks.

Day 2: The Surreal Feel
This is Dali country, and you can get your surreal fix in several places. To the north lies Cadaqués, a picturesque seaside resort where Dalí and his friends would come to unwind. Púbol is home to the incredible House-Museum Gala Dalí Castle, a medieval castle converted by the artist into a flamboyantly romantic shrine to his wife; while the Dalí Theatre-Museum in Figueres – the self-declared ‘largest surrealistic object in the world’ – has to be experienced to be believed. Not too far away, Barcelona dazzles with the extraordinary legacy of another Catalan genius: modernist architect Antoni Gaudi.

Day 3: All the Fun of the Fair
Feeling frivolous? Why not unleash your inner child at medieval feast in a castle at Lloret de Mar, where jousting, dueling and sword-fighting performers entertain you as you eat. Sure makes restaurant-dining seem a little tame!
