Costa Brava

Costa Brava

It’s easy to see why Spain’s northernmost Costa, the Costa Brava, remains so popular with coach holidaymakers.

With a spectacular coastline made up of dramatic cliffs and secluded coves framed by towering pines and only interrupted by pretty harbours and seaside towns, the Costa Brava, which translates as ‘wild coast’, is the place to go for romantic unspoilt scenery, breathtaking views and some of Europe’s finest Blue Flag beaches, not to mention a mild year-round climate.

Coach holidays to the Costa Brava have something for everyone.

Costa Brava Carousel

Girona

Girona

The charming medieval city of Girona is located north of Barcelona at the confluence of the rivers Ter, Onyar, Galligants and Güell, halfway between the sea and the mountains. Girona is one of the most historic centres in Catalonia. Take a leisurely stroll through the old town, visit the museums, art galleries and historic buildings, including the impressive Gothic cathedral, wander through the cobbled lanes and squares, and discover the quaint cafés, bars and restaurants.

Barcelona

Barcelona

This magnificent city filled with Catalan culture offers various attractions and events for our coach passengers with outstanding museums, art & architecture including the world famous Sagrada Familia and the Casa Bastillo with its renowned skull & bones balconies, designed by the Spanish architect – Antoni Gaudi.
