Costa Brava is a coastal region of northeastern Catalonia, Spain, in the comarques of Alt Empordà and Baix Empordà, in the province of Girona. Costa is the Spanish and Catalan word for 'coast', and "Brava" means "Rugged".
In the 1950s the Costa Brava was identified by Spain's Franco government as being suitable for substantial development as a holiday destination, mainly for tourists from Northern Europe and especially the United Kingdom. The combination of a very good summer climate and excellent beaches was exploited by the construction of large numbers of hotels and apartments in such seaside resorts as Tossa de Mar, Lloret de Mar and l'Estartit. Tourism rapidly took over from fishing as the principal business of the area.
Whilst part of the Costa Brava coastline leant itself to tourist developments on a very large scale other parts have retained a more traditional look and have become "hidden gems" for visitors who want a little more than sun, sand and sangria. Small towns like Cadaqués (close to the French border and close to the foothills of the Pyrenees) have attracted artists such as Salvador Dalí and Pablo Picasso and are now fashionable resorts. The coast between Roses and Tossa de Mar has many delightful small coastal towns such as Pals, Begur, Tamariu, Calella, Llafranc, and Aigua Blava.
