⛵Why sailing in Costa Brava?

The coastal region of Costa Brava is home to some of the best beaches in Spain, with large, beautiful sand stretches and waters so blue and clear that can be compared to those of the Caribbean. Due to its unearthly beauty, Costa Brava has become very popular among tourists, thanks to its plenty of tourism development throughout its coastline. Despite that, the coastal region is still able to preserve its charm with spectacular landscapes, wind-battered headlands, beautiful beaches surrounded by soaring clifftops, breathtaking rock formations, lovely seaside towns offering amazing cuisine and rich history.

📃 Important info for sailors

To charter a boat in Spain including the Canaries, yachtsmen need to hold a valid sailing license.

It is important to be informed about the local sailing conditions. The name of Costa Brava - the Wild Coast -, itself suggests that sailors should be careful when planning their yachting holiday. The famous Tramontana wind blowing from the Spanish mountain regions reaches the coast and challenges experienced sailors mostly during the winter and spring months. In summer, the Tramontana is much milder but sailors should set sail with circumspection in any case.

All marinas along the Costa Brava are well equipped with facilities sailors might need during their yacht charter. The busiest marina of the region is in L'Estartit.
