Golden sands and green hills combine in the popular resort of Santa Susanna, which lies east of Barcelona on the edge of the Costa Brava. Beaches line the shore, while the woods behind it offer ample opportunity for outdoor adventures. Set back from the water you’ll find restaurants, bars and interesting historic buildings including churches, chapels and a watchtower originally built to protect the locals from pirate raids.
The sea is the focus of most Santa Susanna holidays, and the beaches of Caletes, Santa Susanna and Llevant are all ideal for swimming, sunbathing and water sports. Hiking, biking or horse riding in the Massif Montenegre, a hilly reserve surrounding the town, offer up fine views and the chance to enjoy various refreshing natural springs. Further afield on holidays to Santa Susanna are theme and water parks, plus the cities of Barcelona and Girona – both fabulous places for day trips.
