Beyond the famous sandy beaches and tourist resorts there are plenty of other interesting things for kids to do on the Costa Brava. The beautiful and rugged Costa Brava stretches along 124 miles of Spain’s mediterranean coast from the French border down as far as Blanes. I had a great family trip there this year with a group of BritMums bloggers and these are my tips based on our experience. The children in our group were aged between nine and fourteen.
Surrealist artist Salvador Dalí was born in Figueres and in the 1970s he bought and remodelled the town’s derelict nineteenth century theatre as a museum for his art. Today the Dalí Theatre Museum is one of the most visited museums in Spain and is a great place to take kids. My teen was intrigued by the portrait of Dalí’s wife which looks like Abraham Lincoln if you squint and all of the kids enjoyed climbing the stairs in the Mae West room to see the furniture form the features of the famous actress.
