Costa Brava The Costa Brava is one of the most beautiful areas of Catalonia and probably the whole of Spain. Its coast is lapped by the crystal clear waters of the Mediterranean and its interior overlooked by the spectacular and mighty Pyrenees. The stylish central area of Baix Empordà between Sant Feliu de Guíxols and Pals is popular with those from Barcelona and boasts some wonderfully scenic stretches of rolling coastline around Palamós, the beaches and villages of inland Palafrugell and hill-top Begur. The more rugged Alt Empordà in the north is marked by the broad sweep of the Golf de Roses, site of a nature reserve, the Parc Natural dels Aiguamolls de l’Empordà, and the alluring peace of the ancient Greek and Roman settlement of Empúries, and extends to the bohemian Cadaqués, which attracts an arty crowd paying tribute to Salvador Dalí; the artist lived most of his life in the labyrinthine warren of converted fishermen’s huts in a neighbouring cove, which is now a fabulous museum to visit.
