Costa Brava is "just like the Bahamas". Honest.
If you think about it hard enough, it's conceivable that the Costa Brava region of North East Spain does in fact start in the Bahamas. Of course, you'd have to raise the temperature of the Earth several dozen degrees so the oceans boiled away and you could walk the 4,578 miles between the two (it is, we've checked). Or lower the temperature so you could walk across the Atlantic. Or grow gills.
Ok, so the Costa Brava is nothing whatsoever like the Bahamas, and certainly doesn't start there. Unless you're the Costa Brava Girona tourism board, and you use a photograph of the Bahamas to advertise your beaches in Lloret de Mar. The advertising strapline "Where does the Costa Brava start?" doesn't quite make sense when accompanied by a photo taken nearly 5,000 miles away.
The director of the tourism board can't see what the problem is, since each of them has sand, sea and sky, saying: "Our intention is not to lie, nor to suggest that the Bahamas are really better than the Costa Brava." Before you accuse her of talking through her agujero, test your powers of deduction with the Guardian's gallery of beachy pics for you to guess the location of.
NB In the spirit this story, we've published a photo of the Costa Brava, too. Except it's really Brighton Beach. And that's Brighton Beach in Melbourne, not Blghtly. We're wild, we are.
