Discovering the Costa Barcelona, Spain – cableskiing, giants and a biosphere reserve

2 months ago

If you haven’t heard of the Costa Barcelona, there are plenty of good reasons to discover this stretch of Spain’s coast between the Costa Brava and Costa Dorada – and just outside Barcelona itself. From the seaside city of Calella, where I tried banana boating and watching the ‘giants’ at a traditional festival between exploring, to the biosphere reserve of Montseny and a chance to go cableskiing at Canal Olimpic (a lot harder than it looks!), it’s a fantastic place for a holiday. My 13 reasons to visit are on MummyTravels at
