Full description

Explore the Girona coast, christened as Costa Brava 100 years ago, with its rugged coastline of small coves, pine forests, and crystal clear water, on a day trip from Barcelona. Climb aboard an air-conditioned bus to Lloret de Mar, and later transfer to a boat to continue to Tossa de Mar for a guided tour. Explore the southern part of the Costa Brava, visiting 2 villages that represent the very essence of the coast. Depart from bus station "Estació del Nord" in central Barcelona in the morning for the drive to Lloret de Mar, the main tourist village of the Costa Brava. Upon arrival, find yourself immersed in the hustle and bustle. Stroll along the promenade for great views of the beaches, from the majestic Lloret Beach to the hidden Sa Caleta. Walk through the narrow streets, which retain an ambiance of Lloret’s maritime past. Explore the modernist architecture of the Church of St. Roma. Next, climb on board the Dofijets, and sail to the neighboring village of Tossa de Mar. Gaze at the characteristic landscape as you cruise, a procession of huge cliffs that have been shaped by the sea and wind into fanciful forms over centuries. Arrive at Tossa de Mar and explore its beaches, caves, and Medieval remains. Explore the Old Town of Tossa, listed as an artistic-historic monument since 1931, and one of the few remaining fortified medieval towns on the Catalan coast.

Discover traditional and atmospheric fishing neighborhoods, such as Sa Roqueta. Enjoy some free time for lunch in Tossa, with some of the best gastronomic offerings along the Costa Brava. Afterward, wander around the shops on Tossa’s charming streets. In the afternoon, head back to Barcelona by bus.

Great tour with fascinating beach and sea views! We enjoyed very much the boat trip and the medieval town. We had a great day at the coast with a lot of sun and beatiful views! P. S. If you are a nature lover, you need to try the coastal paths.

Today was a sensational day. Irene was my your guide and she informed us well in English. What to expect, laid out the day... it wasn't rushed. Truly a day filled with aha moments. The two beaches are gorgeous and the boat ride was perfect. Glass bottom boat helped us see under the water and the fish. Bus driver and the two other tour guides, were also very friendly. If you can fit in the time, make it part of your trip. Thank you so much.
