Barcelona To/From Palafrugel (5 day)
Costa Brava is undoubtedly the most beautiful coast of the Spanish Mediterranean coastlines, and its easy access from Barcelona makes it an ideal destination for water sports and activities. There are numerous coves along the coast you can choose from to explore; recommendtiona always include: Castell cove, Medas Islands, Calella, Sa Aigua Blava, Sa Tuna and Sa Riera.
the first stop will be in the Futadera cove, located between two beautiful sea villages: Tossa del Mar and Sant Feliu de Guíxols. Awe-inspiring and romantic touches make Tossa del Mar a beautiful stopover, especially as its sandy seabed and wind-free coast allows for a tranquil anchorage.
Arenys De Mar
Arenys de Mar, only a few kilometres away from Barcelona, exceptionally combines its artistic heritage with its beautiful beaches and many recreational activities. Its privileged location has made it an important fishing town since ancient times, as evidenced by the district that marks its origins: the 14th-century fisherman’s quarter.
Canyelles (Lloret De Mar)
Lloret de Mar, a town on the Costa Brava in Spain’s Catalonia region, is known for its Mediterranean beaches. The medieval hilltop Castle of Sant Joan, to the east, offers views over the area, while the central Iglesia de Sant Romà church provides examples of both Catalan Gothic and modernist architecture.
St Feliu De Guixol
While not recommended for anchorage, Sant Feliu is a glamourous village and its port certainly deserves mooring here to explore the sea front, should you rent a boat for a week.
Calella de Palafrugell is an attractive resort, well known for its various rocky coves, sandy beaches and excellent fish restaurants.
The beautiful fishing village of Cadaqués is sometimes referred to as an island on the coast. That is because it is relatively protected from mass tourism by a long, winding road through the mountains of Cap de Creus.
The town is particularly popular for its splendid beaches, and loved for its unique location: it is the only beach resort facing west, which means tourists and locals alike get to enjoy fantastic sunsets across the Gulf of Roses.
