Why hiring a car on the Costa Blanca can make your holiday so much more special
Spain is one of the top tourist destinations in Europe and the Costa Brava - located in the north-east of the country - is one of the best regions for holidaymakers who want to enjoy a varied break with access to beaches, mountains and a whole host of fun activities. With so much to discover, renting a car offers total freedom to fully explore the region. The Costa Brava coastline is diverse and stretches for miles. With Barcelona at its southerly end there is something on offer for all tastes.
Costa Brava is known for its beautiful, cosy and wild beaches. There is much more to be seen aside from the tourist hotspot of Lloret the Mar. The medieval town of Pals, the traditional fisher-towns of Estartit, l'Escala or Cadaques (where painter Salvador Dali was from and his house is open for visitors) have all the Mediterranean charm that holidaymakers need to relax and enjoy on a sunny break.
As well as beaches, the Costa Brava is well within striking distance of national parks of outstanding beauty for those tourists who prefer mountainous landscapes and walks. Don't ignore the national park of Aiguestortes and the Lake of Sant Maurici, as well as the wild Pyrenees, which cross the north of the Costa Brava from east to west.
Younger tourists and families will particularly enjoy the Costa Brava for its theme parks, with Natupark being the one closest to Barcelona (only 30 minutes away). This park offers adventure circuits up on the trees and is the biggest in Spain. Tourists in the Costa Brava can also visit the aquatic park Isla Fantasia.
With so much to be seen, the best option when visiting the Costa Brava is hiring a car. This will give holidaymakers the freedom to reach every destination with total freedom. Make sure you compare your car hire excess through MoneyMaxim's service to get great cover and prices.
