The wild coast – Costa Brava

Costa Brava Travel Guide by Tiana Pongs

A wedding brought me to the Spanish coast for the first time and really inspired me. The Costa Brava has been one of the most popular tourist destinations ever since the 1950s. This comes with little surprise, considering the high amount of 200 sunny days a year. Author Ferran Agulló named the landscape „Costa Brava“ (spanish: „wild coast“) because of its rough, inaccessible coast in one of its articles. Of course that wildness could also refer to the nightlife …

However, the true beauty of the Costa Brava lies within its numerous sweet, small fishing villages, for example “Cadaqués”. Said village features fantastic white houses framed by the beautiful mountains and small fishing boats bobbing next to their landing stages in the brilliant blue sea. The picturesque view is one of the reasons why Cadaqués is among the most popular destinations of the whole coast. Back in the day this place used to be a well-known wine region, as well, so you should not forget to try a glass. Furthermore, the coast’s inspiring surrounding also brought up many artists, such as Salvador Dali. The beautiful nature reserve “Cap de Creus“ nearby should also be included on your list. The area consists of many small coves and offers numerous, beautiful viewpoints for photos. Whether you love the sea or the mountains, the Costa Brava offers both. Just 50 kilometers separate the coast from the foothills of the Pyrenees. There are countless beautiful sandy beaches, with quiet bays, but also rocky ones framed by the rugged coastal landscape. The land, the people, the atmosphere are simply unique. ¡Buenas vacaciones!
