Roses holidays - Costa Brava Holiday rentals - beach villas & holiday homes to rent in Roses

Roses sits at the northern end of one of the most scenic bays in the world - the Bay of Roses - and joins the elite club of world bays such as Ha Long Bay in Vietnam, that is recognised as such by UNESCO.

Roses has some of the best beaches on the Costa Brava, a bustling marina and lively nightlife with a large selection of cafes, bars and restaurants. The local specialty is called suquet which is a simple dish of freshly caught fish boiled with potatoes - the restaurants challenge each other to see who makes the best dish!

For watersports enthusiasts, you can choose from a full menu of activities from diving and water-skiing to taking a kayak or boat along the coast and explore the many hidden coves.
