A pleasant escape from the hustle and bustle of the big city
Tossa de Mar, along the Costa Brava, is just under two hours away from Barcelona by bus, but it feels worlds away. Even on an overcast evening, the quaint little town still manages to shine. Hotel Cap d'Or, on the edge of the main strip, is a great place to rest your head for the night.

Drinking Sangria admiring the sea views....
I just don't think you can find a better place to drink Sangria on the beach with such a beautiful view. Tossa is a hidden gym along the Costa Brava region of Spain.
Just another shot of Tossa De Mar....
After spending a few days in this picturesque town, you dream of retiring to this laid back way of life. Hmm.....Maybe I could move to Spain and fish for a living.
"Worth It" Day trip up coast from Barcelona
We decided to get out of Barcelona for a day trip and I'm very glad we did! From the Nord Bus station in Barcelona, buy Sarfa bus tix (on second floor) to Tossa de Mar. It's about 1.5 hour drive north up the coast. The view on both sides is lovely (this picture was taken on the way to Tossa) and the bus is clean and spacious. We walked down to the beach, the sand was a little rough but overall everything was lovely. This beach wins hands down over Barceloneta for sure. We had lunch at Bahia. The meal was delicious and the sangria was seriously THE best I've ever had!
