From our new base of Rosas, Costa Brava spreads its charms. With three natural reserves, more than 200 km of coasts, and 17 marinas, it’s a top destination for sailing. Fishermen villages and resorts alternate. At the foot of the Pyrenees, you will appreciate the numerous “calas” hidden between two reefs.
