Stretching from the French border to just north of Barcelona with picture-perfect beaches and collection of quaint Spanish beach towns, its steep cliffs and small romantic coves are the images from which postcards are made.

The 160km of beaches in this region has remained true to its environment emphasizing the lush vegetation, natural reserves and golden sand. This is also home to the Empuriabrava marina, with over 5,000 mooring sites, an extensive network of channels and a small aerodrome for light aircraft and helicopters.Home to over 20 Michelin-star dining opportunities, Costa Brava is a gastronomic paradise.El Celler de Can Roca, a Michelin three-star, ranked the world’s number one restaurant in 2013 makes this region a culinary delight. Adding to the gastronomy and beaches are the countless activities available from hiking and cycling to diving and water sports to sailing and horseback riding. Costa Brava is a fierce coast with an intensity for the finer things in life.
