Nevertheless, many maintain their essence and thus make them the ideal destination to enjoy with the family. A relaxed summer, just like the ones in the old days.
Cadaques, Banyoles, S’Agaro, Begur… The Costa Brava extends from Blanes until the border with France and it is dotted with scenes of dense vegetation that descends from the mountains to the sea, that create beautiful and charming beaches of fine white sand.
In many of these towns we can find natural harbours from which neighbours set off to fish aboard their small boats. The majority do so just for fun: the Mediterranean is a calm sea where sailing is a pleasure, especially during the summer, with its warm waters and with hardly any swell.
In order to enjoy these little towns, the best is to plan a car trip that allows the traveller to stop and spend the night in the different places of the Catalonian coast where to enjoy and discover the customs of the Mediterranean.
