In the end I have visited some villages and beaches of La Costa Brava like Pals, Begur (and their coves), Llafranc and Calella de Palafrugell. These villages are really beautiful. I could walk eternally along their narrow and charming streets. I could spend a whole day in each one of their coves. I could walk for hours along their Ronda Ways. For sure, these villages are some of the most charming ones of Catalonia.

I really liked Sa Riera beach in Begur, one of the most beautiful beaches in La Costa Brava and in Catalonia

During these days, we stayed at the apartments L'Escala Resort, which I strongly recommend. These lovely apartments are located in L'Escala. For further information, you can vist the website Besides, clicking on the next link, you can see some pictures of L'Escala Resort apartments.

The Tea Shop Sa Pubilla, next to the Tourism Office of Calonge, is a cozy place to have a rest. The decoration is friendly and colourful and the relaxing music is perfect to get one's strength back (Address: Plaça Major 4, Calonge)

Some months later I visit the beautiful village of Tamariu, also in La Costa Brava, and its lovely beach, as you can see in the following picture:

I also recommend spending a weekend in Cadaquès, Portlligat and Empuriabrava, three charming villages located in the north of La Costa Brava, as I did in 2009.

Of course, in addition to its almost heavenly beaches of turquoise water, Costa Brava offers many cultural activities. Among them, I would recommend visiting the following places:

and enjoying Camins de Ronda in Costa Brava, from where you can enjoy fantastic views of Costa Brava and its beaches:
