Costa Brava Holidays

Who is Costa Brava suitable for?
Destination Ok, so this may sound a little bit like we are trying to pimp this Spanish region to you Brits, but please believe us when we say that Costa Brava holidays are universal. Seriously, they have something for everyone to enjoy. From splendid Spanish culture to beaches and bars, or hills and harbours, you will find a resort here that best suits you. Unless you have a sun phobia, you will love it. Why bother reading on? Just make an impulse buy and book a holiday to Costa Brava with Qwerty Travel today.

On the north coast you will find the resort of L’Estartit. This rather classy resort will show you how the real Spaniards do it. There are plenty of traditional Spanish towns close to this resort, such as Torroella de Montgri for you to explore and see places unspoilt by us Brits. However, if all that sounds a little too sensible (or boring), then head to Lloret de Mar and party the night away in the clubs and bars. Don’t worry, there is also something for the families who are desperate to grab a bit of sunshine this year. Calella is a super friendly resort with cute little Spanish streets that the kids will love exploring, as well as a great beaches and water sports.
For Singles

When: Go in October when there are plenty of Spanish fiestas taking place. It’s basically a party in the street. The Festival de Musique is held all over the region, so wherever you end up, you’re sure to catch some of it.

Where: Before you go on your city jaunt to Barcelona, start your holiday in Tossa De Mar. Here you can enjoy some peace and quiet as you lay on 14km of unspoilt beach. There are no high-rise buildings in site.

Why: Head to Costa Brava for a few days and lay out on the glorious beaches, before heading up to Barcelona, which is only a short distance away, to show off your tan - you get two holidays in one.

For Groups

When: You don’t want any danger of parents telling you to watch your language in front of their precious children. This is why you have to go in June, when the exams are over but the kids are still locked in school.

Where: Lloret de Mar is the main party resort in Costa Brava. With five beaches to choose from during the day, make sure you nurse your aching head for another night out on the town. Head to Bumper nightclub with its glass dance floor.

Why: Costa Brava is one the best holiday destinations for groups of Brits wanting a short flight time, with scorching sunshine waiting for them at the other end.

For Couples

When: Go during September when the kids have gone back to school and the prices are much cheaper. That way you have more money to spend on daytrips and exploring this beautiful region.

Where: L’Estartit is not particularly touristy with great golden beaches and coves for you and your significant other to lie on, walk on or even make out on (sorry). If you’re an active couple, why not go horse riding in the hills?

Why: Without wanting to make the guys feel uncomfortable, the views are pretty romantic and would make an ideal location to pop the question. On the other hand, the beaches are great and the beer is cheap too.

For Families

When: The waterpark and the PortAventura theme park are open from May. However, the weather won’t be as hot as July and August. You also want loads of other kids there to keep yours entertained. Mummy and Daddy need some private time too.

Where: Calella is perfect for a family shindig. There is a great promenade which is bursting with restaurants and family friendly bars, where the kids will enjoy having a few mocktails (alcohol free, if you really have to ask). If they get really bored, send them to the arcade down the road.

Why: There are grade A beaches (known as Blue Flag beaches for the seasoned travellers), three water parks, a nearby theme park and plenty of kid friendly hotels, to keep the rugrats entertained.

Weather In August the weather gets pretty hot, to say the least. With highs of around 31C, sun cream is just as important as water. Of course you want to get a healthy tan, but with these temperatures you’re going to burn sitting in the shade. If you fancy going when it’s a tad cooler, so you can actually move without breaking into a sweat, then May would be ideal, when the temperature is around 24C but the wind is more frequent to help cool us pasty Brits down.

What to expectIf you’re looking for somewhere that is a bit quieter than Costa Blanca, but don’t want to feel like you’re missing any action, then you will love it here. The Lloret de Mar is probably viewed as a less tacky version of Benidorm, but still has plenty of bars and clubs to keep you entertained. However, there are plenty of cultural things to balance out the British bars and restaurants. Smaller resorts, such as Pineda de Mar, are great if you’re looking for some well-needed rest from that dreary nine ‘til five job back home.
