Drive along the beautiful Costa Brava with Ibex Insurance Services

Drive along the beautiful Costa Brava with Ibex Insurance Services Image

November 17, 2014

Most expats choose to move to Spain because of its sunny beaches, relaxed atmosphere and wonderful climate, but many of them don’t take in everything that the country has to offer. That’s why Ibex Insurance Services recommends buying a car, or bringing your current one with you. With its soft, dry heat and Mediterranean coastlines, Spain is a delightful country for scenic drives.

There are many places to choose from, but we think Costa Brava stands out as one of the best. The coastline features soaring cliffs punctuated by small beaches, with charming towns and villages dotted along the way. The rich green foliage and deep blue of the ocean create a stunning tableau, making this a fabulous destination for scenic driving.

We recommend starting at the picture-perfect coastal town of Llafranca, an unsung beach resort where you can relax in the sun, away from the crowds. The small town scenery makes a beautiful start to your drive.

From Llafranca, a short drive up through the rolling hills of the coastline takes you to the pretty medieval town of Begur. Perched on a hill above the sea, the narrow cobbled streets and striking medieval castle make Begur seem like it has jumped out of a storybook.

From there, drive north along the rugged coastline and verdant countryside to Empúries. Here you’ll find a treasure trove of Roman ruins, with shining mosaics to take in, and the teal-sea of the Gulf of Roses behind you.

From Empúries, you’re only a beautiful half hour drive away from the town of Figueres. The drive will take you away from the coast through lush, flat countryside beneath the wide blue expanse of the Spanish sky. Art lovers should definitely make sure they stop by Figueres, birthplace of Salvador Dali, the famous surrealist painter. A beautiful destination in its own right, the town features the Dali Museum and Theatre, which was designed by the man himself and attracts thousands of visitors every year.
