Costa Brava - For / With Children
If during your holiday in one of our apartments on the Costa Brava, you want your family to enjoy both the majestic monuments of the area with a great variety of activities to share with children, just use your imagination and get ready to be happily surprised!
Nearly 200 Costa Brava beaches await travelers so that you can enjoy your holidays where the Empordà brings together land and sea.
Some beaches seem to blatantly shown themselves off for their easily reachable location, while others seem to be hiding away from visitors behind the full splendor and purity of nature, something that characterizes many of the small coves in the area.
From the long list of beaches and coves with unique stamp found at www.costabrava.org we would like to highlight among many others, those of La Almadrava, Canyelles, Cap Roig, Montjoi, Sa Cova, Sant Antoni, Aiguablava, Aiguafreda, Estreta, Fonda, Fornells, La Fosca, Les Dunes, Montgo, Portal, Portitxol, Sa Riera, Sa Tuna or Tamariu.
For more careful picks, check out a beach of your choice at www.queplaya.es
If your family's adventurous character pushes you to discover the well marked "Caminos de Ronda" (Ronda Roads) stretching all along the coastline, you will then discover the reason for the name Costa Brava given to this beautiful land www.costabrava.org
If what your kids like best is biking, then you can spend time on the roads that lead you along the famous Green-ways (former railway tracks reconverted into trekking and biking paths). You can rent your bike at www.holiday-bikes.es or look up on the entertainment section of www.costabrava.org for more information, or for more info on the green-ways in GIRONA-COSTA BRAVA at www.viasverdes.com
Aside from the two Natural Parks in the MARISMAS DE L’EMPORDÀ and CAP DE CREUS, respectively located in the Roses Bay and North Coast areas of the Costa Brava, nature, land and sea, are the prevailing element in this beautiful area of the Mediterranean, in which it is a must to highlight the protected sea environment of ILLES MEDES.
Among other natural areas that make the Costa Brava great, the beaches occupy a special place in our heart.
So many miles of coastline means that travelers can choose from around 50 high quality service companies to help you enjoy the Mediterranean Sea and the Costa Brava to the max. Anything from learning how to windsurfing (for both children and adults), to renting a sailboat and crew to experience the Costa Brava from the point of view of the sea while relaxing on deck with your entire family.
Among recommended companies we would like to highlight:
Children also love the Costa Brava, where they can enjoy all seaside activities along with a multitude of “land” entertainment such as horseback-riding and biking along the many coastline roads. The whole family can feel they are the first ones to discover the beaches that shall appear before their eyes www.baixemporda-costabrava.org
The Costa Brava being located by the sea, there are 3 water parks in the area, Aqua Brava in Roses, Aqua Diver in Platja d’Aro and Water World, where children will enjoy a wonderful day splashing around and sliding down water slides. www.aquabrava.com
Another children's favorite are the Karts, which they can drive to their hearts content in any of the Costa Brava kart race tracks, eight in total. Among others those of Roses, Palamos, Empuriabrava, L'Estartit and L'Escala. See www.kartingroses.com and www.kartslescala.com
There are also over 40 scuba-diving centers in the Costa Brava area, which will allow you to enjoy wonderful beaches from an unique underwater perspective that you will just love.
If you have never scuba-dived, this is the time for you and your family to give it a go and explore the underwater world. For example, at the largest natural sea park in Catalonia, the "Illes Medes", where you can get a scuba-diving “baptism” in anyone of the numerous scuba-diving schools available www.unisub.es .
