Catalunya's Mediterranean coastline may be a popular holiday destination for Europeans but few Americans have heard of it. Costa Brava means “rugged coast” and it lives up to its name with some of the most spectacular coastline we have ever seen.
Costa Brava is a favorite vacation spot
It's no wonder that many Europeans spend their holidays here. Besides the region's luminescent Mediterranean waters, there are plenty of other things to do in the area. I tend to suspect, though, that the most popular activities are probably sunbathing on the pristine beaches and enjoying delicious local specialties at restaurants along the boardwalk.
Two don't miss things to see in Costa Brava
If you are a plant lover, we highly recommend that you don't miss the chance to experience two very extensive and different botanical gardens, Marimurtra in Blanes and Santa Clotilde in Lloret de Mar. Marimurtra is also a botanical research facility, while the gardens at Santa Clotilde (which used to be a home) were created for someone who spent an incredible amount of money on imaginative landscaping.
