Pity TripAdviser does not give opportunity to add a photo - the beaches are cosy and fantastic I hope whem TA approves this review this option becomes available. Better to see once than to read twice

A novel way of showing the history of lighthouses, and associated stuff, as I found out when I read about it after our visit.

Brilliant walks and views around this beautiful quaint old town. Little shops and Taverns to keep you watered and fed. Best on the Costa Brava. Taking a sea taxi to the next towns was brill.

Tossa de Mar in my opinion is the most attractive of the towns we visited on the Costa Brava. You can either walk up the spiral path or take the little train to the Far (lighthouse) on the headland.
