The costa Brava can be visited any time of the year. However, spring and summer offer a wide range of activities which you can do while enjoying the good weather. For this reason, Porcel Advocats wants to provide you with a list of five plans which are a must if you want to make the most of the Catalan coast. Let’s go!

  1. Visit Cadaqués

Cadaqués is said to be the most beautiful town in Catalonia – and, according to Salvador Dalí: “the most beautiful in the world”. Whether this is the case or not, Cadaqués is a staple of the Costa Brava, as the place, with its well- preserved streets and white houses, has preserved its charm as an ancient fishing town. Nobody can resist falling in love with its view from the promenade, the bay full of boats.

  1. Take a walk around Calella de Palafrugell

Another staple of the area is Calella de Palafrugell. Originally a fishing town, you can still feel its essence in the air. Moreover – if you enjoy sailor’s songs and tavern music, you must attend the “Cantada d’Havaneres” (concert of songs by the Catalans who returned from Cuba, called the “Indianos”, where they went to seek their fortune). An event which has been held each summer for over half a century, it is considered one of the most important concerts of this genre in Spain.

  1. Visit the ruins in Empúries

The ruins of Empúries: the most important Greco-Roman archaeological site in Catalonia. The city of Empúries was founded in 575 BC because of its commercially strategic location. Not only was it the largest Greek colony in the entire Iberian Peninsula, but it also became a great economic and commercial site. Wander around and discover its history.

  1. Visit the Medes Islands (or go diving)

Declared a Protected National Natural Park, these seven islands are located near the beach of L’Estartit. You can gaze at them from any point in the town of L’Estartit, you can dive near them… or you can also go to the harbour and take a glass bottom boat that will allow you to observe the seabed. Whatever you decide, don’t miss out on them!

  1. Go to the beach – take a dip in the Costa Brava

Last but not least, you cannot leave the Costa Brava without visiting its beaches and coves. If you are feeling adventurous, we recommend you follow the hiking paths that border the coastline; they will take you to the most hidden coves.
