General & Geography

The popular holiday region Costa Brava (“wild coast”) covers the northeastern Mediterranean coast of the Spanish region Catalonia over a length of over 120 miles. It stretches from Portbou on the Pyrenees to Lloret de Mar.

At the southern end of the Costa Brava begins the metropolitan province of Barcelona. The coast owes its name to the rugged rock formations and steeply sloping serras. However, there are also many beautiful sandy beaches, including Sant Pere Pescador and the resort of Empuriabrava.

The overall rough coast is unsurpassed in natural beauty, on the Costa Brava active holidaymakers and seaside holidaymakers alike get their money’s worth. In addition, a large number of exciting inland attractions, from the Salvador Dalí Museum to old Romanesque monastery ruins and picturesque old towns, attract visitors.

The most important tourist centres of the Costa Brava are Calella (de la Costa), Lloret de Mar, Ampuriabrava, Rosas, Tossa de Mar and Playa de Aro. Playa de Pals, L’Escala, Malgrat de Mar, Santa Susanna and Pineda de Mar are also becoming increasingly popular.

Those who do not travel to the Costa Brava by car can easily reach the region via the international airport Girona-Costa Brava about 8 miles outside the provincial capital Girona. The journey via Barcelona (about 56 miles from Lloret de Mar) is also a cheap and fast option.

Climate on the Costa Brava (Spain)

License Information available under 'Proof of Image Sources' The Costa Brava has a Mediterranean climate, which is always somewhat cooled by the partly strong winds (Tramuntana), especially in spring and autumn. The average temperatures are therefore also slightly below those of Andalusia or the Costa Blanca.

Nevertheless, the Costa Brava climate can be described as very pleasant and mild. Between June and September the daytime temperatures are always above 25 °C, although peaks of more than 30 °C are possible on hot days.

The partly icy land wind in spring and autumn sometimes reaches storm strength and makes these travel seasons on the Costa Brava somewhat unpredictable. The coast has around 210 sunny days a year and experiences the heaviest rainfall statistically between September and November.
