Tossa de Mar – North Eastern Coast of Spain
Tossa de Mar is located high up on the north eastern coast of Spain and is a place where all types of tourists enjoy visiting. The scenery around the area is some of the most picturesque within the Costa Brava. A walk in the surrounding woodland will reveal some terrific sights and settings, so keep the camera handy. The beach at Tossa de Mar is a popular one but is also quite large so it can accommodate the busy summer season.
The transfer time from Girona-Costa Brava Airport will be around an hour to an hour and a half, in this time you can enjoy the countryside as it turns from flat farm lands into green hills that ends in a golden beach looking out into the Mediterranean Sea.
Throughout the resort you will find plenty of affordable accommodation to choose from, with many hotels offering all the modern facilities and services a tourist could want. There are apartments on offer also for groups looking for the self catering options.
Travel around the resort and to nearby areas is quite accessible and affordable and comes in the form of public transport buses and taxis.
Tossa De Mar – Fun & Activities
Down on the beach is where most tourists tend to spend their holidays in Tossa de Mar and it’s little surprise with its beautiful golden sands along with warm blue waters that are perfectly safe for children to play in. If you fancy a little more than spending all your time on a sun lounger then you can try one of the many water sports on offer which include scuba diving, water skiing, windsurfing, snorkelling and parasailing. There are also plenty of boat trips that will take you along the coast to other resorts in the Costa Brava like Port Aventura and Barcelona.
If you’re are travelling with children and they haven’t quite got their sea legs just yet then fear not because there is plenty to do back on land. Popular activities include go-karting, horse riding or even a trip to Waterworld aquatic park located close by. For the golf pro’s heading this way you will delight in the fact that there is an 18 hole golf course available for holidaymakers to enjoy.
There are couple of local souvenir shops open that will be selling small crafts and leather goods that are great for gifts for family and friends back home, or better yet a memento of your holiday. For a wider range and better choice of shops you will need to head to the likes of Barcelona and Port Aventura as there you will find many shops selling brand named clothing and jewellery.
Tossa De Mar – Food & Nightlife
Because Tossa de Mar has a universal attraction with tourists it must provide much variety in terms of cuisine so it can please all who visit. You will find plenty of restaurants lined along the seafront which offers great views whilst enjoying your meals from British, Chinese, Italian and Spanish restaurants available. There will be a few seafood restaurants too. Near the old castle wall you will uncover some high end and expectedly more expensive restaurants.
There is a decent nightlife on offer with many bars open till after midnight and provide music, but for anything later you will have to travel along the coast in search of a nightclub. Your hotel will provide some entertainment but mainly live music or more family orientated shows. Overall it isn’t one of the liveliest resorts on offer though you can enjoy a reasonably late night, but it will be quite low key.
Tossa De Mar – Weather Info
Tossa de Mar is a very popular resort and that is mainly down to its fantastic weather and if you travel the peak summer months of July and August you can expect the temperatures to go as high as 30°C at times. There is a calculated 11 hours of sunshine during a day over summer also and that ensures there is no rain over summer, though in the unlikely event that there is a bit you can expect to pass very quickly.
Over winter temperatures fall and there is much less sunshine than over summer, that said you can still count on the temperature to fall no lower than 12°C over the colder months of the year. This means you can enjoy winter holidays here and still be quite warm although there will be a little more rain but still not enough to concern holidaymakers. The temperatures will begin to rise once more at the end of January and they will keep climbing until summer comes round again.
