School trips to Costa Brava
Safe, inspiring and scenic, Costa Brava occupies an enviable location on Spain's North East Mediterranean coastline, within easy reach of airports, educational excursions, sports training sites and accommodation options, we’d highly recommend a school trip to Costa Brava.
Costa Brava is a popular option for MFL, sports, performing arts and music groups. Students will appreciate the close proximity to Barcelona, where they can visit Spain's Olympic stadium and the world famous Camp Nou Stadium – home of FC Barcelona. After a busy day, staff and students can relax in the safe and welcoming resort of Costa Brava, where amenities and Blue Flag beaches are conveniently located within walking distance of the hotel options we have on offer.
With its Mediterranean climate, Costa Brava is a year-round destination for school groups; we suggest visiting in May Half Term or at Easter, when the weather is warm. For a quieter stay with milder weather, October and February half terms are also recommended.
