Barcelona and Costa Brava-hints for family friendly places to stay and things to see.

We are travelling at the end of July early August to Barcelona/Costa Brava trying to find ideas about where to spend our time - a few days in a few places that are family friendly nice beaches, hikes, places to visit. Looking forward to this visit and want to do it right.

Also trying to do all this visiting of sites without having to hire a car for travelling - looking at buses, trains and walking if possible recognizing that not all will be.

Obviously Barcelona for a number of days and maybe two places in the Costa Brava area and may even spill over to the south of France if time permits, but I know there is so much to do just in Spain.

Advice is welcome.

Try Tossa de Mar, used to go there as a kid for my family holidays.

Have you also considered the Costa Dorada? Just south of Barcelona, great beaches, vibrant towns, Roman ruins, and the largest amusement park in Spain called PortAventura World.
