THE COSTA BRAVA
The Costa Brava was given this name over a hundred years ago, due to its wild and rugged landscape. It has been transformed from a region of small, isolated and quaint fishing villages to a stunningly beautiful, prosperous and modern holiday destination.
The old and the new, the traditional and the modern, all combined with a wide range of sports facilities as well as cultural and entertainment options, which are the added ingredients to its extremely popular beaches and coves that blend in with the traditional fishing and farming culture that still exists to this day.
Med Playa has three hotels in two of the most popular destinations on the Costa Brava: the Hotel Monterrey in Platja d'Aro and the Aparthotels Esmeraldas and San Eloy in Tossa de Mar. The three hotels are exceptional starting points from which to discover the mysteries of this historic coast, or the perfect places to enjoy the sun, beach, cuisine and many other activities.
The privileged geographic location of Platja d’Aro is near the sea and the main centre of communication. The shopping, nightlife, leisure activities and top-quality tourist services are some of its main attractions. The Hotel Monterrey is located a few steps away from the city centre and only 70 meters from the beach.
Tossa de Mar has discovered how to maintain the balance between its past and present, as it is now a modern tourist location with an important infrastructure of accommodations, services and activities to provide the visitor with an enjoyable stay. Tossa de Mar is rich in nature and also history, as its city centre is itself an immense historical archive.
The Costa Brava is characterized by the excellent water quality of its beaches, and also the small hidden coves and beaches that are surrounded by vegetation from the coastal erosion of the sea pounding on the cliffs. Some are only accessible from the sea and many others can only be reached by coastal paths that line the coast in some towns of the Costa Brava.
