Tossa de Mar Holidays

A chic coastal hangout

The tranquil seaside resort of Tossa de Mar combines a sophisticated feel with the authentic charm of an unspoiled Spanish seaside town – a winning combination that is said to have made it popular with celebrity visitors. Wander the streets on Tossa de Mar holidays and you can admire boutique hotels opening out on to the steep, winding streets, disarmingly rustic restaurants, bijou tapas bars and an intact medieval walled village.

It’s all very picturesque, and some of the best views can be glimpsed from the 12th-century castle, which overlooks the umbrella-dotted beach. While the sand in these parts tends towards the pebbly, the crystalline waters are ideal for snorkelling, which is a brilliant way to explore this beautiful coastline. Come evening, holidays to Tossa de Mar are about making a beeline for the cliffside bars around the rocky Torre des Moros, from which you can watch the sunset bathe the town in an atmospheric orange glow.
