Full description
Explore the secret beaches of the Costa Brava on a full-day sightseeing tour from Barcelona, and discover a landscape of rugged cliffs, crystalline water, and soft white sand.

Traveling by luxury mini-coach, drive to the village of Palamós. Wander around streets lined with whitewashed houses, kayak to find magical caves, or take a guided walk through the pine forests of the rocky coast. You will be following the historic “Camí de Ronda” footpath.

Continue to the little fisherman village in Cala S'Alguer, where the houses tumble down to the seafront. Then uncover the hidden Dali's hut, where he used to rest with Gala and visit the Iberian settle. Your guide will provide a running commentary about the customs and traditions of the local fishermen, including their “havaneres” songs.

Go to dine on paella in one of the old restaurants of the voltes (archways). After lunch, drive to Palamós to watch the fishing boats dock and unload their catch of the day. Soak up the energy of the busy wharf and fish market, before driving back to Barcelona.

mark our tour guide was fantastic and very accommodating. he took us through some of the most beautiful and breathtaking views and a trek. initially his understanding was differentof the trip and the places covered however when we discussed the itinerary per the booking, he was flexible enough to mend and tailor it to suit our needs

An incredible, breathtaking, and exhilarating experience!!

Our day trip to Costa Brava was one that we will never forget! First off, we booked the trip completely last minute (which I wouldn’t recommend). The employers of LivingIt contacted us and said there was a conflict and we may not be able to go. They did everything they could to make it happen and they did!!! Our tour guide, Joan, was unbelievable! He was incredibly knowledgeable about Barcelona, Costa Brava, Dalí and all of Spain! He spoke English very well and we had a blast with him, talking the entire duration (10+ hours) of the excursion. Since we booked it last minute it ended up being more of a private tour so Joan listened to our interests and altered the route as much as possible to fit in what we wanted to see! We saw multiple beaches of Costa Brava along with some of Dalí’s beautiful creations. We highly recommend taking this day trip! It was a day we’ll never forget!!!! Thank you so much, Joan, for everything you did for us!

Laia was so knowledgeable and the tour stops were perfect!

Our tour guide, Laia was so sweet and knew the answers to so many of our questions! She was able to show and tell us all about our destinations, and add in information that we were truest interested in! She was awesome and made it one of our favorite days while on our honeymoon in Barcelona!
