You Said

"Lovely weather during our two week stay and spent a lot of time on local beaches and between towns of platja d'aro, sant antoni and palaces." Jacqueline from Redhill

Your Regional Specialist Emma

“South of Barcelona; the sun shines longer, the sea is warmer and sites like Sanguli just get better year after year. Cambrils Park has a Mediterranean resort style ambiance with plenty of services, especially popular for pre-teen children. Whatever your age, though, the endless sunshine will brighten your holiday."

Hidden Gem: Peratallada

The town of Peratallada, stroll along the streets and explore the medieval walls of this delightful town. Don’t miss the church of Sant Esteve in the square - soak up the atmosphere over a glass of sangria. 

Old Favourite: Figueras

The town that is the birthplace of the surrealist Salvador Dali now plays host to a museum with an extensive collection of his works, many from his personal collections. A great insight into Dali’s world and a great day out.

Local Cuisine: Fideuà

Similar to paella but with noodles instead of rice. ‘Fideuada’ (meaning a large amount of noodles) is a seafood dish seasoned with lemon.

What to See: The Gothic Quarter

Don't miss Barcelona's 14th century streets of the Gothic Quarter and Gaudi's unfinished cathedral, La Sagrada Familia. The Costa Brava's artistic track record is impressive too, with homegrown talents including El Greco, Velasquez, Goya, Picasso, and Salvador Dalí.

Festivals & Events: Fireworks competitions

This, thankfully, happens regularly on the coast of Spain. It’s well worth taking a look with mini local festivals also around the same time to see these huge extravaganzas in action. 

Beaches & Lakes: Platja d'Aro

When it comes to beaches, you're spoilt for choice! Visit the two blue-flag beaches at Tossa de Mar with its quaint castle, its lively neighbour Lloret de Mar, Platja d'Aro with its two-kilometre expanse of golden sand, or upbeat Estartit with its range of watersports.
