I spent last week on the Costa Brava with my family and I’ll be telling you a bit about the best spots we visited.

The first chapter will take us to Calella de Palafrugell in the Baix Empordà. Not to be confused with the much bigger and more touristy Calella resort South, closer to Barcelona.

Calella de Palafrugell has beautiful coves and some nice little restaurants overlooking the sea.

We snacked on some gazpacho, a caramelised pear salad, little fried fish, calamares a la romana -fried squid rings and melon/mint soup.

Although it can get somewhat busy during the summer months, you don’t have to fear the mass tourism like in Lloret de Mar.
It’s worth spending the day at one of its beaches and taking a walk through the fishermen village.

A cliff path leads to Llafranch and its a lovely stroll. High above the bay, the Jardi Botanic de Cap Roig is a botanical garden offering stunning views.
