Costa Brava holidays are decidedly fun in the sun. Starting just north of Barcelona this picturesque region extends up the eastern Spanish coast to the French border. Alternating between rugged cliffs, secluded bays and extensive beaches the Costa Brava is a favoured summer destination for sun seekers.
Contrary to popular belief package holidays to the Costa Brava are not restricted to mass tourist resorts. Indeed, the medieval walled regional capital of Gerona is testament to the rich history of the area. Spanish heritage, culture and tradition are definitely to be found in abundance along the Costa Brava for those who wish to look.

Alternatively, those who want cheap holidays to Costa Brava resorts that just offer the Spanish staples of sand, sun and sangria will definitely find them. Thirty five miles north of Barcelona, Lloret De Mar is a bustling, modern resort featuring high-rise hotels and a suitably large beach. It is also bulging with bars and clubs that stay open until the very early hours and is a favoured destination for families, couples and singles.
A few miles farther north slightly less lively Tossa De Mar still retains a modicum of its fishing village roots but also offers enough excitement to keep most people amused. It definitely doesn’t match the late-night excesses of Lloret De Mar but then it’s the beach that primarily pulls the visitors not the nightlife.
Indeed, it is beach weather throughout summer on the Costa Brava. Temperatures can climb as high as 30°C at the height of summer although the average is nearer 24°C. The intoxicating mix of summer sun, Mediterranean culture and lively evening entertainment is what tempts many Britons to book holidays to the Costa Brava.
Other preferred resorts on the Costa Brava include Malgret De Mar and Callela, both within 20 miles of Barcelona. For those who like to mix and match sun worship with a discovery of culture and perhaps a little shopping their location so close to the Catalonian capital makes these resorts very tempting.
