A popular resort on Spain’s beautiful Costa Brava, Tossa de Mar is one of Catalonia’s most popular holiday destinations. The town’s main draw card for tourists is its incredible weather and 14km of beautiful beaches, including Tossa Beach (Platja Gran), La Mar Menuda and El Codolar. However, there is more to Tossa de Mar than sun, sea and sand. Sporty types can take advantage of the huge range of activities on offer, from scuba diving and snorkeling in the clear waters of the neighbouring Medes Islands to wind surfing, water skiing and sailing. Kids will delight in a day trip to Marineland and its waterslides, while history buffs will love wandering the narrow cobblestone streets of the walled Vila Vella and the ancient hospital of Sant Miguel. When hunger strikes, you’re in luck – Torra de Mar is home to over 300 cafes and restaurants. Choose from traditional Spanish food, including tapas, or more international offerings geared towards tourists. If you choose a self-catering Tossa de Mar apartment or villa you can also save money on dining out by stocking up on fresh produce at the weekly market on the Rambla Pau Casals. This is also a great way to experience true Tossa de Mar life, by shopping amongst the locals.
