Catalonia tourist tax

Catalonia charges between 0,45 Euro and 2,25 Euro in tourist tax per person, per night — depending on the type of establishment you stay, and whether or not you stay in Barcelona.

Also: there is no word yet on the possibility that the city of Barcelona may introduce an additional tourist tax for day-trippers.

Empuriabrava

Empuriabrava is one of the most unusual beach resorts along the Costa Brava. For one thing, it is the world’s largest residential marina. For another, the place is only about 40 years old.

While it lacks that authentic Catalan ‘feel’ it nevertheless is a major tourist destination.

Roses

Roses has the largest fishing fleet of the Costa Brava, but like so many other towns along Catalonia’s coast its main income nowadays is derived from tourism.

Its biggest selling point: wide, family-friendly beaches with fine sand and shallow water.

Cadaqués

The beautiful fishing village of Cadaques is sometimes referred to as an island on the coast. That is because it is relatively protected from mass tourism by a long, winding road through the mountains of Cap de Creus.

Llançà

Originally Llançà was divided between the original tenth-century settlement — built inland as a defense against pirates — and the harbor of Llançà.

However, the tourist boom brought lots of urban growth, and the village and harbor soon joined together to create one resort.
