Tour Information


Overview
  • On this tour we are going to visit the Girona coast, christened 100 years ago as the Costa Brava. The name is due to its unique rocky, rugged and cut shape coastline, composed of small coves surrounded by pine forests and lapped by crystal water.

    Its natural wealth and beauty is apparent in several territories and protected areas, such us Cap de Creus, the Emporda Marshes and the Marine Reserve Medes islands.

    The fame of Costa Brava is also due to its villages. Small fisherman towns, with whitewashed walls and narrow winding streets, today still retain their charm.

    In this half day tour we will discover the southern part of the Costa Brava visiting two villages that represent the essence of that coast. They are opposed to each other but, at the same time, complementary, and after few hours after leaving Barcelona, we will go back with a complete idea of what Costa Brava is.

Costa Brava Day Trip from Barcelona

Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Lloret Beach, Lloret de Mar Spain

We will take the motorway and after 1h15m we will be at Lloret de Mar, the main touristic village of Costa Brava. Upon arrival we immediately realize of its bustle: there will be multiple coaches arriving from all over Europe which bring visitors to enjoy its beaches, hotels, shops, activities and, above all, its lively nightlife.

We will have about an hour to explore this colorful and dynamic village with strong personality.

Along its unique beach promenade we will be able to enjoy great views of its beaches, arising from the majestic beach of Lloret to the hidden Sa Caleta. In addition, two small hills on both edges of the beach promenade are privileged view points throughout the site and surroundings.

Walking through its narrow streets, which still have reminiscence of its recent maritime past, we will find plenty of shops to suit all tastes: from the latest brands to the typical beach bazaars.

In the middle of its most famous shopping street we will also be able to admire architectural jewels of great value such as Saint Roma church, with an exquisite modernism style, and inside the church, a 16th century altarpiece which is still so well preserved.

At approximately 10:50am we will go on board DOFIJETS, which will lead us to the neighboring village of Tossa de Mar. During the sailing trip we will be able to enjoy the unique and characteristic landscape of Costa Brava: a procession of different huge cliffs which have been shaped in fanciful forms over the centuries by the strength of sea and wind.

Duration: 2 hours

Stop At: Vila Vella (Old Town), Tossa de Mar Spain

At about 12:00 pm we will get to the emblematic village of Tossa de Mar, considered “the pearl of Costa Brava” because in this small area we can find all those landscape and historic elements which have given it such well-deserved fame.

Its spectacular sceneries, from its shores, beaches, caves in the cliffs to its lush vegetation, turn it into one of the locations that has better preserved its natural environment in perfect harmony with the tourism industry.

History has left his footprints, from the Romans in the Vila Romana dels Ametllers, one of the most important villas in the ancient Roman province of Tarraco, to its emblematic fortified Vila Vella or Old Town of Tossa, which was listed as an artistic-historic monument in 1931 as it is the unique remaining fortified medieval town on the Catalan coast. Today, little is left from the original 13th-century structure and today’s ramparts are the result of several restorations undertaken throughout the years, especially that one dating from the late 14th-century.

Outside its walls, we can find the traditional fishing neighborhood, known as Sa Roqueta, which still maintains the sailor atmosphere of these typical villages on Costa Brava.

Once we arrive in Tossa de Mar, we will begin a walking tour from the beach, following the fortified perimeter up to the lighthouse on the top, for those who are interested. Over there, you will appreciate stunning views from the coastline. When descending, we will go through the narrow streets and stony houses of Vila Vella until we get to the fishing district. From there on, you will have free time to have lunch. This village has the greatest gastronomic offer from all Costa Brava.

A peaceful walk around the beach will help us find places with unique perspectives on that site.

The Roma Vila dels Ametllers, with well-preserved mosaic floors, is located in the city center and is easily accessible, with free admission and explanatory panels. A complete visit is recommended.

You cannot leave Tossa de Mar without walking around the small and attractive shops on its typical streets.

At 3:00pm the tour will be finished and we will go back to Barcelona by bus, where we will arrive at about 4:30 pm at Plaza Catalunya.

The tour was not totally in English which we prefer. The content presented on the bus was a little heavy on facts and light on humor in comparison to other tours. The first town visited was a waste of time except for the church. a very touristy and tacky town. The day improved with a boat tour to the next town which was fabulous. I would have liked it better if the bus took us to the second town for a good part of the day (excellent restaurants and touring) then took the boat to the first town to leave on the bus back to the city without staying there for more than 15 minutes.

This tour is great if you want to spend about half of the day getting a quick overview Costa Brava. If you want to spend more time there and really enjoy the beaches, I recommend maybe a longer tour

I was a bit nervous at first to take my 4.5 year old on this trip with me but it turned out to be a perfect day for two of us, while my husband and my elder son were discovering different parts of Barcelona. The day was really well planned with enough time between formal walking tour, free time exploring, ferry and beach time. The areas we were able to see were absolutely stunning and worth visiting. Our guide Monica was super friendly and spoke good English. I would highly recommend it for families spending couple of days in Barcelona. It was also a great value for money - with a child free ticket.

This was my favorite day trip during our stay in Barcelona. Loved seeing this mid-century village, the beautiful countryside and wonderful boat ride. Our tour guide was great, the pace was comfortable, and would go there again in a heart beat.

We boarded a regular tour bus and began almost on time. It’s a little over an hour to the first stop. The first village is really touristy. We had 45 minutes there. We then waited on the beach for the boat to pick us up. We ended up standing in the sun for over 20 minutes waiting for the boat. It is actually a ferry that runs between villages. It was pretty crowded but we got seats. It was also very difficult to board. Had to walk down a steep, slick ramp. After this all was great. The scenery was beautiful! The village of Tossa da Mar was so interesting and gorgeous! We took the guided walking tour and then had lunch. Many places to choose from. Had plenty of time to shop. All in all a great tour!

We really enjoyed this tour! The highlight is the stop in Tossa de Mar. It is an absolutely beautiful coastal village with an abundance of great restaurants and a beautiful medieval town. You get about two and a half to three hours of free time here which is more than enough to shop around and have a wonderful lunch! The tour is also offered in many languages. We were so impressed with our guide! We heard her speak everything from Spanish to Catalan to English to French to Dutch. Amazing!

I would highly recommend this tour. The tour guide was professional and very informative. The drive up the coast was scenic and relaxing. We had lunch in the quiet seaside town of Tossa overlooking the beach and water enjoying great pizza and sangria. I would recommend a walk to the Castle as it has very picturesque views over the Mediterranean. A very enjoyable tour.

Très beau tour et guides animateurs excellents. Toutefois, linteret Pour la première ville visitée est très limitée à part son bord de mer et son église. Par contre la visite du chateau et de la ville de Toassa de Mar est spectaculaire. Magnifique!

We were very disappointed in the towns on this tour. What we thought would be quaint fishing villages, were just streets lined with low level souvenir shops. These are definitely not the best views of the Mediterranean. If you really want to see these towns or the coast, rent a car and shorten this trip.
