Costa Brava Day Trip From Barcelona

Discover the magic of the Costa Brava by going on this day trip from Barcelona, a getaway from the bustling city life. Set off on a scenic journey north along the coastal highway to Blanes, your gateway to one of Europe's most stunning coastlines.

As you depart Barcelona in the morning on a comfy air-conditioned bus, the serene landscapes unfold before you. You'll be headed to one of the few remaining coves untouched by large crowds and commercial developments. It's a chance to bask in the natural beauty that's often hard to find.

Once you arrive, the choice is yours – relax on the beach, take a refreshing dip in the crystal-clear waters, or explore the famous botanical gardens nearby. The next two hours are all yours to enjoy.

After that, savor a Spanish feast of traditional dishes accompanied by a glass of Sangria. Then, select your favorite main course to complete your culinary journey.

The adventure continues as you journey along the coast to Tossa de Mar, the final fortified town on Costa Brava. Wander through cobblestone streets to reach the lighthouse, where a breathtaking view of the coastline awaits. Meander back through the old town, discovering narrow streets lined with picturesque whitewashed houses.

You'll have free time to soak up the atmosphere, shop for souvenirs, take a dip at the beach nestled beneath this historic town, or even rent a kayak for an exhilarating paddle under the cliffs. After a couple of hours exploring Tossa de Mar, it's time to return to Barcelona, completing your memorable Costa Brava day trip.

Wonderful experience!

Our original tour we booked to Girona, Theatre Museum and Calella de Palafrugell was canceled so we purchased this one instead. It was a wonderful experience and glad we didn’t give up and made it to Costa Brava. The region is absolutely gorgeous, we first visited Lloret Del Mar and then rode a ferry boat to Tossa Del Mar. Tossa stole my heart and we hope to return and stay there in the future. Our guides were kind and not overwhelming with information, which I appreciated. It was a very chill day because you get to explore Tossa on your own for at least 2.5 hours. Get out and explore, the views from the top were breathtaking.


Highly recommend!

This trip was an absolute bargain. Great knowledge from the tour guides (Monica and Marta). Lovely air-conditioned coach. Left at 8.30am and so got to Lloret de Mar before most of the boozy Brits woke up :-). Well worth the money, Monica showed us all the best spots, and we had plenty of free time to explore. Plus Tossa del Mar was just so beautiful. To conclude, I would say this tour was the best value trip I’ve ever been on and I’ve been on quite a few. Well done to the organizers of this day trip, it’s worth visiting!
