The Wild One; Costa Brava
Found in the north eastern part of Spain, Costa Brava stretches right along the Mediterranean coast and proudly adorns rugged cliffs and coves – not to mention it rubs shoulders with Barcelona!
While a little rough around the edges, this Costa knows how to have a good time. Over in Lloret de Mar (along the coast) entertainment bubbles with a buzzing nightlife and thrill-inducing spots like Water World Aqua Park. Even wildcards need to wind-down at some point, and Tossa de Mar is the perfect place for it with winding cobbled streets, traditional buildings and a real authentic Spanish feel.
