CATALONIA - COSTA BRAVA: TOSSA DE MAR


Here you can see some pictures I have taken when I visited Tossa de Mar with two friends. We had been invited by Toni, a friend of a friend, and I will always be very grateful to him for his hospitality and for his kindness to all of us. Tossa is really a wonderful and lively town of La Costa Brava, Girona.

Interesting places, beaches and coves I visited in Tossa de Mar:

  • Old Town and Castle
  • Ronda Way around Tossa de Mar
  • Giverola Beach
  • Pola Cove
  • El Codolar Beach
  • Platja Gran Beach
  • Platja Menuda Beach

If you are interested in diving, I strongly recommend Tossasub Diving Centre. I enjoy a lot the Scuba Diving Course I did there.
