In between lively resorts such as Lloret de Mar lie conventional fishing villages and abundant attractive inlets to explore, whilst inland lies the medieval Moorish monopoly of Girona.
Tossa de Mar is a charming town, rich in history and overflowing with sights. The municipality can claim to be one of the oldest on the coast - with a history stretching back 1,000 turbulent years. Situated in the heart of the Costa Brava, it's a suitably dramatic fortress. The castle, constructed in 1187, is also worth a visit. There are seven beaches within a few kilometres from the town. There's still a village feel to this town, cloaked in the pine forests and green valleys of the coast - and sprawl has been kept low-key and in keeping with the region's heritage.
This is a world away in style and substance from its near-neighbour, lively Lloret de Mar which is a lively modern resort with a splendid beach and an impressive Water park. Other resorts include the well admired beach resort of Blanes, the resorts of Santa Susanna, Calella Lanes, Calella, Estartit, Roses and Santa.
For culture and art lovers the Salvador Dali museum and the Monastery at Montserrat are not to be missed.
