Nightlife hotspot Lloret de Mar is the number one choice for big nights out, with something new to try every night and sunny days jam-packed with beach games and banana boats. If lying on a beach is more your scene, blissfully relaxed resorts like Blanes provide the softest, sandiest spots to sit back and let your worries drift away. Resorts like Calella are a favourite with history buffs and anyone who wants to take their camera for a walk, with lots of sights to see and tasty cuisine to try.

It’s no secret that the beaches in Costa Brava are its biggest attraction. Beach life goes hand-in-hand with the hot Mediterranean climate, whether you’ll be pulling up a sun bed and working on your tan or getting stuck into different water sports. Popular activities include hiring jet skis or taking a boat out on the water. The beaches are the best place in Costa Brava to relax, play games, and simply stroll along, taking in the world around you. Pick from active beaches packed with bars and activities, or seek out the hidden gems and find a tiny cove to call your own.

Beyond the beach, Costa Brava’s attractions include adventuring out into the coast’s beautiful surroundings, which you can explore on foot, by bike or even on horseback. In the town, you can visit museums dedicated to the region’s most famous son, Salvador Dali. Many of the resorts have historic town centres that sightseers will love, filled with charming whitewashed villas and old churches. There are plenty of things for kids to do in the Costa Brava, with local family attractions including exciting water parks, or why not head down to Costa Dorada for PortAventura World & Ferrari Land? It's one of the country’s biggest theme parks.

 

With the heady mix of sunny days and long, warm nights, Costa Brava pulls in the summer clubbing crowd. Lloret de Mar is Costa Brava's nightlife capital and is the best place to go for a top choice of bars, clubs and pubs. Keep an eye out for offers and promotions and join in with the theme nights, fancy dress and pub crawls; you can do something new every single night. For a night out with a difference, head to the beach and hop on a boat party for a night of drinking and dancing on the water.
