Although the Costa Brava is widely associated with busy commercialised resorts, it is also a diverse region of extraordinary natural beauty, with rugged coastlines, beautiful beaches, hidden coves and picturesque fishing villages. Our resort of Malgrat de Mar is superbly located in the centre of the ‘Wild Coast’. It is largely flat with a small hill, site of the original medieval settlement. Malgrat offers all the facilities one would expect from a modern town whilst retaining its local atmosphere and charm.
With a typical Mediterranean climate, the days are long and sunny, providing ample opportunity to sample the sand and shingle beaches or to just relax by the pool. After dark there is a good selection of bars and tavernas offering visitors a warm welcome and friendly atmosphere. This region is packed with interesting places to visit, including the magnificent city of Barcelona which is easily accessible by train, historic Gerona and Montserrat, one of the holiest sites in Spain
We use the Hotel Papi, which is superbly situated close to the beach and shops.
The gently shelving sand and shingle beach of Malgrat de Mar offers safe bathing and a range of watersports.
