Swim in a small inlet, play on the giant floating mattress, or go snorkeling in the beautiful waters. Top off the experience with complimentary drinks including beer, sangria, soft drinks, and water. Return to Lloret de Mar with the music turned up, as you soak in the atmosphere.

Costa Brava: Water World Aquatic Park & Optional Transfer

5. Costa Brava: Water World Aquatic Park & Optional Transfer

Spend a fun-filled day at Water World Aquatic Park and make unforgettable vacation memories. With your ticket, enjoy access to the park, then explore at your own leisure. You can also upgrade your day out and opt for round-trip shuttle transfer to the park from Calella, Pineda de Mar, Santa Susanna, Malgrat de Mar, Blanes, Lloret de Mar, and Tossa de Mar. At the park, have a blast riding impressive roller coasters, make a splash in the swimming pool, hurtle down epic slides, or simply relax and soak up the sunshine. There’s plenty to keep you occupied, including 15 unique rides, such as X-Treme Mountain, Water Mountain, and Rafting River, as well as a wave pool where you can chill out. Once you’ve worked up a bit of an appetite from all that fun, take your pick from the park’s many places to eat.

Tossa de Mar: PADI Discovery Scuba Diving

6. Tossa de Mar: PADI Discovery Scuba Diving

The "try dive" is an activity recommended for beginners in scuba. The entire experience lasts three hours, the first 35 minutes of which will consist of a briefing on how the equipment works, how to communicate underwater using hand signals, and how the tour will go. Afterwards, get kitted out in the provided wetsuit and boots in the changing room. Once you are ready, hop in the van for just five minutes and prepare for the fun to start. Because the dive site is directly connected with the beach, you'll be enjoying a shore dive off Mar Menuda Beach.  When you get to the water, your guide will break up the activity step by step, and you'll have plenty of time to get used to each one at your own pace. Starting from the beach makes everything easier, especially for your ears as you'll have more time to get used to the pressure. Stay under the water for about an hour — this, of course, depends on you, because the more nervous you are, the faster you breathe, and the quicker you'll go through the air in your tank. During the dive, your guides will snap some photos/videos, so you will have a souvenir from the activity.

Amazing adventure! Very friendly and welcoming instructors! Would definitely recommend this place to others who'd want to try diving! The only downside was badly filmed videos, but can't imagine it being easy to film underwater and look after newbies

Great tour with fascinating beach and sea views! We enjoyed very much the boat trip and the medieval town. We had a great day at the coast with a lot of sun and beatiful views! P. S. If you are a nature lover, you need to try the coastal paths.

Jasper is very on time and very patient and extremely nice and knowledgeable. The tour is perfect. I will definitely comeback again
