The view from the lighthouse in Calella, one of the coastal cities of Costa Barcelona.

Driving down the c-32, the main motorway that hugs the Costa Barcelona coast, I’m reminded of California. Oaks trees line the rolling golden hills and terra-cotta coloured houses dot the landscape as we pass the upscale town of Llavaneres. We pass an agricultural area and our tour guide points out tiny red dots that are strawberries! There’s a genuine giddiness on our mini bus. The sun is shining (it wasn’t when we left England at 9 am) and that alone is enough to put us all in very good moods.
I’m on a press trip to the region of Costa Barcelona to show off why it is good for families. “Where?” I hear you ask. You’ve certainly heard of Catalunya’s cosmopolitan capital Barcelona, and most likely Costa Brava, a popular coastal region in northeastern Spain.  But I’m talking about Costa Barcelona, one of three new tourist brands that encompass the Province of Barcelona, and is just 20 minutes from Barcelona-El Prat airport. Collectively they market themselves as “Barcelona es most mes” which translates as “Barcelona is much!”
Costa Barcelona may not as well-known as some of its neighbours. But that’s a good thing. It can be our little secret.
Below are a few pics from my trip. Enjoy!



First stop of the day … Wine tasting at Alta Alella @altaalella @bcnmoltmes #BMLcostabcn

    This really is such a pretty region – we were there last year and it was a wonderful half term break, not too far from home!

      It reminded me a lot of California, with the mountains and beach close by.
