From Barcelona: Costa Brava Day Tour with Lunch

1. From Barcelona: Costa Brava Day Tour with Lunch

Escape the hustle and bustle of Barcelona on a full-day tour of Costa Brava. Travel north up the coastal highway to Blanes, the gateway to one of Europe’s most beautiful coastlines. Savor a local lunch and visit the charming town of Tossa de Mar.  Depart Barcelona in the morning aboard an air-conditioned bus. Relax and take in the scenery on the drive to one of the few remaining coves that is still free from the crowds and big commercial developments. Enjoy free time to lounge on the beach or go for a swim in crystal-clear waters. Have the option to stay on the beach for the next two hours, or visit the famous botanical gardens. Sit down to a delicious Spanish lunch in a family-owned restaurant. Feast on a mouth-watering selection of traditional dishes and a glass of Sangria, followed by your choice of main courses. Continue along the coast to Tossa de Mar, the last fortified town on Costa Brava. Walk along cobblestone streets to the lighthouse for a stunning view of the coastline. Wander back down through the old town and discover a maze of narrow streets lined with traditional whitewashed houses. Soak up the atmosphere with free time to purchase souvenirs, take a dip at the beach which lies beneath this historic town, or rent a kayak for a quick paddle under the cliffs. After a couple of hours exploring Tossa de Mar return to Barcelona by bus.

What people are saying about Blanes

Book this trip! The seaside is absolutely stunning, the castle was impressive, the beach front was beautiful. You get to see a bit of Spain that you wouldn’t see just staying in Barcelona (it’s about a 1.5 hour drive.) We were a small group of 7 on the tour, so it was nice and not overwhelming. Enrique our guide was great! He took us to a local place for lunch and ordered for us all - we never would have found this restaurant on our own. We ate like locals. Lots of walking on this trip, so if that’s not your thing, then it’s not for you. It was easy walking, though. Nothing too strenuous. My 17 and 20 year old kids were in awe all day. It was a fantastic day. I give it 5 stars all the way!

This experience was amazing. I highly recommend going on this tour with Sergio. He is an amazing tour guide and super fun! The tour was gorgeous and worth every penny. I did this tour as a young female solo traveler And it was the perfect experience for me. I met other solo travelers on this tour and became good friends with them. If you are solo traveler I highly recommend doing this tour

A very nice tour with a nice guide (Sergio) The views were beautiful and the restaurant chosen was cute with many good options. During off season, there are very few people since the water is too cold to swim in so it made for great people-free photos :)

Great fun day, botanical gardens were spectacular. Tour guide, Jordie, was informative and so nice. Overall 10/10 experience.

We have visited amazing places and have tried delicious food.
