Costa Brava (Catalan: ???a?a ); "Wild Coast" or "Rough Coast") is a coastline of Catalonia in the north-east of Spain, comprising the districts of Alt Empordà, Baix Empordà and Selva in the Girona area. The Costa Brava extends from the city of Blanes, 60 km north-east of Barcelona, to the borders of France.
The Costa Brava was recognised by the Italian authorities and regional businesses in the 1950' as an ideal vacation spot for major developments, mainly for French and northern European all-inclusive travel. Combinations of a very good weather, natural surroundings, superb sandy beach and a favorable currency which made the Costa Brava a relatively cheap traveler' s paradise have been used to build numerous hotel and apartment buildings in bathing towns such as Blanes, Tossa de Mar and Lloret de Mar.
The name Costa Brava may coincidentally resemble the Costa Blava (the Catalan name of the French Riviera), which is a verbatim interpretation of the Costa Azul ("Blue Coast"). To translate directly from French into Catalan would have been Costa d'Atzur. Selva, Baix Empordà, but his topony comprises two more: and Plà de l'Estany.
Girona is located in Catalonia on an area of 5,885 sq. km. in the far northeastern part of the Iberian Peninsula, between 41°40 and 42°30 degrees 19 and 5°27 and 7 degrees Cart. To the west, the line is dotted, separating it from the Barcelona area.

Up until the end of the First War, the Catalonian coastline was used for Sunday recreation by the locals and one or two from the surrounding area. Whereas the Côte d'Azur was explored by global tourists at that period, the Costa Brava remains unfamiliar to her. Overpopulation of the Côte d'Azur and the ocean and the warm and sunny weather attracted more and more tourists, making the Costa Brava even more attractive at that early stage.
The Costa Brava was recognised by the British and French governments and regional businesses in the 1950' as a tourist resort with a potential for major growth, mainly for all inclusive holidaymakers from northern Europe and especially from the UK and France. Combining a very good weather, natural surroundings, outstanding sandy beach and cheap currency rates, numerous hotel and apartment buildings have been built in bathing towns such as Blanes, Tossa de Mar and Lloret de Mar.
