- The Núria Valley
It is undoubtedly one of the most charming valleys of mountain destinations. A holiday in Catalonia that leaves no one indifferent. You can reach the heart of the valley with the Cremallera-Railway and enjoy a spectacular landscape where there are no cars.
Popular in the Middle Ages, thanks to the image of a Romanesque virgin, today it is an ideal destination at any time of the year to disconnect and rest. Due to its isolation, it is the perfect place to spot golden eagles, chamois and marmots.
- The Arán Valley
Located on the northern slope of the Catalan Pyrenees, this valley is surrounded by mountains that exceed 2,000 meters in height. It is a perfect destination for a holiday in Catalonia if you like hiking.

- The north of the Costa Brava
Particularly in the Natural Park of Cap de Creus, there you will discover impressive rocky coves in which to take a bath. Its calm and crystalline waters contrast with the surrounding wild landscape.
On the Girona coast, we recommend you visit Tossa de Mar, probably the most beautiful walled town in Spain. Walking through its streets immediately takes you back to remote times when the lookouts alerted the presence of pirates from the impressive castle that rises over the sea. Undoubtedly one of the best destinations for a holiday in Catalonia.
- Barcelona City
We include the city of Barcelona among the beach destinations for its wide metropolitan beaches. It is a coastal destination that also allows you to live a cosmopolitan and cultural experience that might even seem exhausting.
The urban beaches of Barcelona attract thousands of tourists every year. Especially to the Barceloneta Beach that always has a very lively atmosphere thanks to its many beach bars. Be sure to visit other nearby beaches such as the Bogatell Beach, the Nova Icària Beach or the Somorrostro Beach.

Salou is probably the best beach destination for a break. Full of family beaches, it is also a place that is enjoyable for all. With a large promenade for walking at sunset, it also offers smaller coves where you can enjoy the most beautiful sunsets on the Catalan coast, such as Llenguadets cove. It only has 125 meters, and you can only access it on foot. A destination further south, but with similar characteristics to Salou, is Cambrils, where you can practice different water sports.
