Tossa de Mar Car Hire

There are so many places of interest to visit within easy reach of Tossa de Mar that you may want to hire a car for some or all of your stay here.

Regular bus services connect the coastal towns of this area and serve the local adventure parks. Your tour rep or one of the town's travel agents will be able to organise transport to and from the region's most popular tourist destinations. But if you want to explore the local sights at your leisure and discover some of the unspoilt stretches of coastline and beautiful mountainous hinterland, hiring a car is the best way to do it.

There are small sheltered coves and pretty unspoilt fishing villages which have been virtually untouched by tourism. And inland you'll find villages where life seems hardly to have changed for hundreds of years.

Explore the "cava" (Spanish champagne) region of Sant Sadurni to the west of Barcelona. And take a day to tour Barcelona itself with its many wonderful treasures including the fabulous Gaudi architecture, the street markets and cafes of Las Ramblas and the Picasso Museum. Be prepared for traffic chaos and parking problems though.

The Universal Studios Port Aventura theme park is 160 kilometres south of Tossa near Tarragona. This Disney-style adventure park is famous for its terrifying Dragon Khan roller coaster (with its eight loop-the-loops) and makes a great family day out with masses of thrill rides and live entertainment.

Local hotels, travel agents and car hire firms all supply rental cars but if you're holidaying in high season make sure you book in advance to avoid disappointment. You'll be more comfortable with air conditioning if you're travelling in July or August.
