Costa Brava

Costa Brava is a coastal region of eastern Spain, in the province of Girona. The Costa Brava stretches from Blanes, 61 km (38 mi) northeast of Barcelona, to the French southern border.

In the late 1950s and early 1960s, Costa Brava was identified by the Spanish government as being very suitable for substantial development as a holiday destination, mainly for package holiday tourists from Europe. The combination of a very good climate, nature, fabulous beaches and a favourable exchange rate, making Spain a relatively inexpensive tourist destination, was exploited by the construction of a great numbers of hotels and apartments in such seaside resorts as Blanes , L'Escala, Platja D'Aro, Empuriabrava, Santa Susanna, Llafranc or Tossa de Mar. Tourism rapidly started to take over from fishing as the principal business of the area.

Although a lot of visitors to the Costa Brava prefer to have their accommodation included as part of the package deal, the region offers everything from campsites of all prices and sizes, through self-catering apartments to luxurious and spectacular hotels. A more recent development is a network of tourism rural houses, an imaginative alternative to more traditional forms of self-catering. Accommodation is mostly cheap in comparison with other European countries like France or England and normally of very good standard.

A lot of hotel rooms in more popular Costa Brava destinations are block-booked by agencies, but this still leaves plenty for the independent traveler along with a range of self-catering accommodation. Although it is possible to turn up and find a place to stay even in high season (Easter, July and August) it is more advisable to pre-reserve a hotel room. Cheaper hotels in coastal resorts usually close in winter.
