The Costa Brava is a wonderful holiday destination for families. It has everything: great weather, lovely beaches and coves, unspoilt nature, vibrant fiestas and traditions, historical sites and villages, ancient castles and picturesque towns.

1. The beaches 

The beaches of the Costa Brava must without a doubt be first on this list when it comes to enjoying a family holiday here together. In most coastal towns, you can choose between both large sandy beaches close to the centre, with all the facilities and services, and cute little coves hidden between pine forests and cliffs. If you are especially looking forward to relax and read a book on the beach while your children are playing in safe conditions or even under the supervision of monitors, consider awarded family destinations such as Blanes. 

2. Costa Brava Waterparks

There’s no better way to enjoy the summer heat than in the water. If you add the entertainment of dozens of water slides and theme pools, then you have all the ingredients for a fun family day out and some unforgettable moments with your children.

  • Waterpark in the sea, Empuriabrava
  • Aquadiver, Platja d’Aro

3. Tropical gardens

The Butterfly Park in Empuriabrava is a fantastic tropical garden of about 1,000 square meters, with different species of fauna and flora to discover and show your children. From turtles to parrots and from iguanas to exotic butterflies, it is a feast for the eyes!

Of course there are many other places you can visit with the whole family, such as fascinating museums and mysterious castles which will appeal to your children’s imagination.
