Plans to enjoy the Costa Brava during Easter

23 March 2024 Costa Brava

Easter holidays are synonymous with time for ourselves and, therefore, for making small getaways to relax and make plans to enjoy the Costa Brava during Easter.

Therefore, without a doubt, spending Easter on the Costa Brava promises to be a very enriching experience thanks to the tradition, maritime culture, and tranquility offered by all the landscapes that make it up. From majestic mountains, beaches, coves, and viewpoints to Roman and Greek ruins.

For this reason, we present two ideal plans to fully enjoy these spring days and connect fully with nature.


The Coastal Paths (Caminos de Ronda) and their fabulous views


The Coastal Paths are ideal for some exercise during Easter, accompanied by the fabulous views of the Gerundense coast, where the intense blue of the sea combines with the green of the pine trees that, it should be noted, provide shade on much of each trail. Here are three quite different proposals:

Platja de Pals – Aiguafreda – Sa Tuna. This stretch is 5.3 km long, approximately 50 minutes. It’s quite easy, although there are some stairs and you have to walk a few meters on asphalt. First, you’ll find Cala Moreta, followed by Sa Riera beach. After walking a few meters on asphalt, you’ll reach Aiguafreda and, finally, Sa Tuna.



Platja d’Aro – Sant Antoni de Calonge – Palamós. A 4-hour stretch. It passes through Cala Rovira, Sa Cova, Cala Belladona, Cap Roig, etc. And just before arriving at Sant Antoni de Calonge, you’ll see Torre Valentina. From here, you’ll walk along the entire large beach until you reach Palamós.



Palamós-Calella de Palafrugell. It has a length of 10.6 km and an approximate duration of 6 hours. On this route, we can enjoy Cala Castell, Cala Estreta, etc., and the gardens of Cap Roig, where a famous music festival is held every summer.




The Medes Islands, the quintessential destination for divers


Marine enthusiasts know that the diving season begins with Easter and doesn’t end until after the summer! We also know that the Costa Brava is one of the best diving destinations in the Mediterranean.

Our area boasts a wide variety of marine fauna and flora, areas of irregular relief, steep walls, sensational rocky bottoms, and the spectacular Medes Islands, a natural reserve.

However, if you’re not keen on diving, you can still enjoy this environment with activities such as  guide kayak tours or sailing excursions around the Medas Islands.



Furthermore, if we want to add the traditions of our land to the plans to enjoy the Costa Brava during Easter, we cannot forget about the routes for “buñuelos” (traditional Spanish pastries) and the procession of Verges.
