Costa Brava Tours & Holidays
Join us on a holiday to the Costa Brava
Stretching from the French border southwards, Costa Brava in Spain is known for its stunning natural beauty and delightful towns and cities, almost all of which are filled with historic and cultural attractions.
Costa Brava holidays can include everything from exploring the hidden coves of Pineda de Mar to private tours of the Dali Theatre Museum. And with Newmarket Holidays’ Northern Spain tours, you can explore the various settlements of this gorgeous region, from the buzzing nightlife of Lloret de Mar to the more idyllic, family friendly surroundings of Malgrat de Mar.
It's not all beach resorts to rival the southern Costa Blanca, though. Subregions like Platia d’aro are defined by charming, cobbled streets and ancient buildings. Those inspired by natural and human art are also in luck, with numerous botanical gardens dotted up and down the coastal region, as well as plenty of opportunities to delve into the work of the region’s most famous son, Salvador Dali. With that said, no Costa Brava tour is complete without some lounging on the beach – whether that’s in the quiet Tossa de Mar, on the stunning Cap de Creus peninsula, or at the ever-popular Santa Susanna resort, is up to you.
Costa Brava holidays for solo travellers
Be inspired to travel solo. Newmarket Holidays welcomes solo travellers on all our group tours. In fact, many of our customers choose to join our tours on their own. And the best part is: you won’t really be alone. With a group of like-minded travellers and a friendly, informative tour manager (as well as incredible locals all over the world!), you will love your holiday experience. Joining a tour as a solo traveller is also a guaranteed way to feel safe and confident when travelling alone. While you can join any of our regular tours on your own, we also have a range of tours designed exclusively for solo travellers.
Things to do on the Costa Brava
A Costa Brava holiday is synonymous with the beach. With dozens of excellent little regions, towns, and resorts to explore.
Visit the Salvador Dali House Museum
A visit to the Salvador Dali House Museum is as interesting as the works the great man completed. Housed in Portlligat, you can see where Dali lived and worked for over half a century, and get an insight into his influence in Spain.
Walk the Cami de Ronda
Cami de Ronda stretches for over thirty miles and goes past plenty of viewpoints and beaches, as well as bars and cafes to cool down at, making it the perfect place to spend a day meandering through.

Food and drink on the Costa Brava
Seafood and fish is predictably great on the Costa Brava.
However sea bream is probably the most loved by the locals, especially when baked in salt. The salt turns into a crust which is removed before serving, meaning you get all the succulent flavour without the bite.
Under the baking sun of the Costa Brava water is usually best, but as evening descends then the local cava is a must-try. The bubbly white wine is a Catalonia specialty, and with production usually done entirely locally, you’re sure to find a tipple that’s both delicious and easy on the wallet.
Thanks to the food culture here simplicity is often all you need for an unforgettable snack, which is definitely the case with pa amb tomaquet. Bread, olive oil, and tomato is all that’s needed to make this dish, but the use of fresh, locally sourced ingredients is what transforms it into something divine.
