    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Stop At: Cala de Sant Francesc, Passeig de la Bitacora, s/n, 17300 Blanes Spain

    This tour leaves Barcelona at 8:30am, and in just over an hour you will be transported from the hustle and bustle of the busy Mediterranean city of Barcelona, to one of the most breathtakingly beautiful stretches of coastline in the whole of Europe - the Costa Brava.

    Your one-hour drive will take you north up the coastal highway to our first destination, Blanes - the Gateway to the Costa Brava.

    We will drive straight to one of the few remaining coves on the coast that have avoided the crowds of tourists and big commercial developments, and known only to locals.

    Our early morning departure from Barcelona means you’ll have the beach to yourself, and you’ll be able to enjoy a secluded swim in the crystal-clear waters, or wander alone the shoreline.

    You have the option to stay on the beach for the next two hours, or leave the sand for another day and come with us to the famous botanical gardens. With a little bit of effort, you’ll even find time to do both.

    Duration: 1 hour 15 minutes

    Stop At: Jardin Botanico Marimurtra, Passeig Carles Faust, 9, 17300 Blanes Spain

    The botanical gardens are home to a wide variety of exotic plants, but it is the amazing views from high up on the cliffs that makes this stop an absolute must.

    The turquoise blue waters of the Mediterranean Sea stretch out endlessly into the distance, while far beneath you the waves crash in an explosion of white against the wild coastline. You’ll not want to leave the clifftops, but a typical Mediterranean lunch is waiting for you in a local restaurant.

    Duration: 1 hour 15 minutes

    Stop At: Blanes, Blanes, Costa Brava, Province of Girona, Catalonia

    We stop for lunch in a family run restaurant.

    Your feast will start with a selection of traditional local dishes and a glass of Sangria, followed by a choice of main courses. All the dishes in this family-owned restaurant are lovingly handmade and they have built a deserved reputation as one of the best kept secrets in town.

    After lunch, we will take a short drive to Tossa de Mar.

    Duration: 2 hours

    Stop At: Tossa de Mar, Tossa de Mar, Costa Brava, Province of Girona, Catalonia

    Tossa de Mar, home to the last remaining preserved fortified town on the Costa Brava Coast. You will have time to walk up to the lighthouse along cobbled streets with the ever-present backdrop of the Costa Brava coastline completing your view.

    From the lighthouse on top of the hill, you’ll wander back down through the old town before dropping into a maze of narrow streets lined with traditional whitewashed houses and shops.

    After a couple of hours exploring Tossa de Mar, we will head back to Barcelona, arriving at about 7pm.

    Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes

    We went on the day excursion to Costa Brava which took us to the towns of Blanes and Tossa. After stopping at Blanes for a few hours and enjoying the small, intimate beach with the clearest water I had ever seen, we proceeded to enjoy a traditional three course Mediterranean
