    Hi everyone just joined the site but found it most useful already. Off to the Costa Brava tomorrow in search of some warmth for a month. Ferry from Portsmouth to St Malo and then hopefully arrive somewhere around Platja D'Aro on Wednesday. Too far ahead to plan after that! Any hints/info from experienced funsters would be appreciated, especially where to go/not to go at Easter! Look forward to meeting some of you in the future. Adios!

    We are heading down in a few weeks. Think you will be better off further south weather wise. We along with many go to Benidorm for the micro climate and cheap prices,:)

    Wait for me, Just spent 21 years abroad, 15 on the Costa Blanca and missing it like mad. You will love the Brava's.
    Be Lucky and have a great time we are all envious.

    Is there an aire at Playa de Aro? - only been once tent camping MANY years ago but it was in August - I loved it! I bet it's all built up now along the coast.
