DOSSIER: MARITIME RESERVES ARE A BOOM OF MEDITERRANEAN FLORA & FAUNA…

A Garden of Eden Underwater and Above! Under the sea along the Costa Brava there is a whole world teeming with life, with a huge variety of wildlife and vegetation. Nature reserves, rocky creeks, large well-lit caves, submerged hills, archaeological ruins, colourful meadows of gorgonians, sunken shipwrecks, bright colonies of red coral, grouper nurseries and much, much more! The best way to discover it, of course, is by scuba diving.

Mission Statement

Stretching north from Barcelona to the Spanish–French border, the Costa Brava (‘rugged coast’) is undoubtedly the most beautiful of Spain’s three main holiday coasts. Though there’s plenty of tourism development, this wonderfully scenic region of Catalonia also unveils unspoiled coves, spectacular seascapes, wind-battered headlands, coast-hugging hiking paths, charming seaside towns with outstanding restaurants, and some of Spain’s finest diving around the protected Illes Medes.

Delightful stone villages and the majestic Romanesque monastery of Sant Pere de Rodes nestle in the hilly backcountry, cloaked in the south in brilliant-green umbrella pine. Inland, wander northern Catalonia’s biggest city, Girona, home to a moodily atmospheric, strikingly well-preserved medieval centre and one of the world’s top restaurants. Neighbouring Figueres is famed for its bizarre Teatre-Museu Dalí, foremost of a series of sites associated with eccentric surrealist artist Salvador Dalí, who fell, like many others, for the wild natural beauty of seaside Cadaqués.

With only a few kilometres between the most charming beaches of the Mediterranean and the snow-capped peaks of the Pyrenees, Costa Brava offers the perfect playground for all kinds of fun activities: skiing, hiking, mountain biking and, of course, diving! This coastal region of Catalonia (Spain) has everything from long stretches of golden sand to secret rocky coves that can only be reached on foot.
