GET­TING THERE

Costa Brava is an ex­tremely pop­u­lar des­ti­na­tion among us Brits so you can fly there daily from most air­ports in the UK. Lo­cated on Spain’s north­east coast, above Barcelona and south of the French bor­der, the flight time to Barcelona’s El Prat Air­port or Girona-Costa Brava Air­port is just over two hours from the Lon­don area or around 30 min­utes more from Ed­in­burgh. It’s pos­si­ble to drive from the UK, but you might want to stop off in France to break up the 16-hour drive from Lon­don to Barcelona.

WHEN TO GO

Spring and au­tumn tend to be the most pop­u­lar times to visit the Costa Brava, the tem­per­a­tures typ­i­cally rang­ing from the mid­teens into the twen­ties and more man­age­able as a re­sult. If you’re will­ing to brave the av­er­age highs of 27° in July and Au­gust or wear an ex­tra layer or two in win­ter, bet­ter deals are to be found. Oc­to­ber and No­vem­ber tend to be wet­ter, with late spring and sum­mer stay­ing pretty dry.
