L’Estartit, Costa Brava: Mini Guide for a Maxi Holiday
Costa Brava has a fame of its own and if you are planning to visit it soon, then do it without any second thoughts because there is little chance you will actually regret the decision. Magical, blue and sunny, this is the kind of place that is almost dreamy, almost real and yet neither one of them fully. And if you really want the best of Costa Brava, try Estartit, as it will definitely make for a wonderful holiday where relaxation and fun get at their maximum!
Where to Stay
If you plan on getting an actual holiday here, don’t go for the classic hotel, as it may turn out to be more expensive and less comfortable than the other options available. There are plenty of apartments in Estartit, for every kind of traveller and for every kind of budget and they will be great as accommodation for holidays. For instance, an apartment for 4 people with one bedroom and one bathroom will cost you about 90 Euros per night, which is definitely affordable considering the level of comfort and the great view it can offer. You can stay for as little as 1 night, but Costa Brava does deserve more than that and it will be recommended that you stay at least 3 nights to infuse your body with the beauty of the place!
What to Do
Costa Brava is a magnificent place from multiple points of view and there is little chance you will not find something to do or see here. First of all, try one of the best beaches in Costa Brava and you will definitely be impressed in the most pleasant way possible. From beaches where surfing is on the daily “menu” to beaches with spectacular views, there is literally something for everyone!
Also, make sure you visit Costa Brava’s Villa Vella (the Old Town). The nice and old buildings are incredibly beautiful and they will make you feel as if you have taken a trip back in time. Furthermore, do not forget about the Cap de Creus National Park, as this wonder of nature is definitely something you will not forget very soon. The splendid view and the unique rock formations will definitely haunt your memory for a very long time from now on!
And, if you are an arts lover, do not miss out on the opportunity to visit Dali’s summer house in Costa Brava. The Dali Museum-House is one of the most interesting attractions here for anyone who likes spending time among works of art made by various artists. Even more than that, if you like Dali’s work in particular, make sure you don’t forget about visiting the Portlligat House Museum!
