					When we think of Costa Brava, the image that conjures up is that of idyllic golden sandy beaches, clear
water of the Mediterranean, secluded coves, rugged cliffs, pine forests, medieval towns, and sleepy
fishing villages.

In a region blessed with abundant natural opulence, it is difficult to identify a single place for a
family holiday. There are a number of resorts equipped with leisure facilities, ideal for families
who want to enjoy the splendour of Mediterranean in Spain.

Tossa de Mar

The ancient fishing village of Tossa de Mar is at present one of the leading holiday destinations
for families in Costa Brava. Approximately 103 km from Barcelona, it is home to family friendly
beaches replete with recreational facilities. The shallow waters of the Tossa Beach near the walls
of the medieval castle and the northern edge of Mar Menuda are safe swimming areas for
families with children. Glass-bottom boat trips are the safest mode of exploring the rich marine
life inhabiting the waters of the Mediterranean. There is a play area fitted with swings for kids,
near the main beach. The Sa Riera Park with an artificial pond inhabited by ducks and other
aquatic birds is an attractive place worth visiting in Tossa de Mar. Take a break from your beach
activities to visit the village. A small train carries tourists around this stunning coastal village.
Tossa has several interesting prehistoric archaeological sites. The remnants of the early human
settlements in Costa Brava are preserved in Tossa Municipal

Museum. There are also remains of ancient Roman villas in Els Ametllers. The historic town of
Tossa is a fortified town of the 15th century where you will discover remains of Gothic
monuments. Other attractions of the region worth visiting include Moors' Tower, Chapel of Mare
de deu del Socors, and the farmhouses of Can Ganga and Can Magi.

Calella De La Costa

Packed with recreational facilities on the beach and in the town, Calella De La Costa is one of
the leading destinations for family holiday vacations in Costa Brava. Its mild Mediterranean
climate makes, Calella De La Costa a popular summer holiday destination. Its clean sandy
beaches are the ideal playground for children. The seafront restaurants serve scrumptious local
delicacies. The town with its cobbled streets and unpretentious whitewashed houses and lovely
churches is a peaceful retreat for travelers to Costa Brava. The popular aquatic parks and theme
parks of the region are a short distance from the coastal town.
