“La Costa Brav
a is a unique destination with the Mediterranean Sea, mountains, culture, history and cuisine close at hand.” It is a composite of sensations and contrasts with over 200kn of coastline running from the rock cliffs and small coves near the French border to the fine sand beaches of the south. Much of the natural beauty and scenery has been preserved intact and the mild climate permits year round activities in the most natural of settings.
You can do everything or nothing, but it must be experienced.
