Top 5 most beautiful villages in the Costa Brava


The charm that lies within the Costa Brava is no secret. Because of its picturesque villages, its magic, its cuisine, its magnificent array of sunrise colours, its sunsets and the blueness of the ocean, it is word discovering every wonder that this coast offers us.

If you still haven’t heard about this area located in the province of Girona, we will give you a tour of our selection of the 5 most beautiful villages on the Costa Brava so that you can star planning your holidays.


Top 5 most beautiful villages in the Costa Brava

  1. Cadaqués

Strolling through its streets is like falling in love at first sight, almost like Dalí and Gala. This beautiful coastal town is home to the Casa Museu Salvador Dalí, and many artistic references to the surrealist period. But the real art and beauty is in the views that Cadaqués offers, which is why it is said to be the most beautiful village on the Costa Brava. Discover it by visiting the best beaches in Cadaqués, such as Cala Portaló, Es Pianc or Ros.

  1. Calella Palafrugell

This fishing village on the Costa Brava is like something out of a postcard. The contrast of typical white houses and crystal-clear sea is a dream combination. A walk along the Camino de Ronda or a visit to the Cap Roig Gardens is an excellent option to discover.

  1. Tossa de Mar

Tossa has many attractions, but what stands out is that it hides a different medieval village in the heart of the Costa Brava. This journey back in time will take you to the old 12th century castle. You can also enjoy the seafront promenade and charming beaches such as Cala Pola and Platja d’es Codolar.

  1. Begur

This is another of the listed medieval villages on the Costa Brava. A walk through the old quarter will take you to a castle with beautiful views of the sea. It is also considered a strategic place to stay and get to know other nearby villages and beaches.

  1. L’Estartit

Here are the Illes Medes, which is one of those beautiful places on the Costa Brava and perfect for disconnecting. It has natural beaches for dogs and is an excellent place to enjoy water sports such as paddle surfing, kayaking, snorkelling or scuba diving to enjoy the beauty of the biodiversity of its seabed.


What is the prettiest village on the Costa Brava?

Perhaps it would be as surreal as a Dalí painting to choose just one village. The truth is that the 5 villages we have just mentioned are considered by travellers (and locals too) to be the prettiest villages on the Costa Brava.

And the fact is that this entire coastal area is a face-to-face encounter with the most beautiful secrets and treasures of the Mediterranean.

Every village, every cove, mountain, historic quarter, medieval settlement, or traditional fishing village is an invitation to discover wonders, whether you do it alone, as a couple or with your family.
