When we go on vacay we all mutate into cringy, basic Insta binches. Stoke knows in the dark, dingy corners of your soul you secretly relish making your friends back home seethe with jealousy, so we set up a brand-spankin’-new beach camp in Costa Brava. It’s the coast with the most, and a location straight out of an Instagrammer’s wet dream. Here are Costa Brava’s most ‘grammable moments so you can get the sweet, sweet emotional validation of a comment or twelve.
It’s inevitable: we all gain a little travel weight, whether it’s from knocking back brews nonstop or scarfing down platefuls of tapas all while convincing ourselves “it’s okay because vacation calories aren’t real!” Don’t fear, your sleazy ex who still follows you for some godforsaken reason never needs to know about your lovable travel gut! Behold, kayaking! The first thing you have going for you is that you’ll be sporting a life jacket, which is pretty much just a souped-up lifesaving waterproof girdle. Secondly, you’re constantly using your arms to paddle, which makes your oiled-up shoulder muscles glisten in a way that would put Hercules to shame. Your ex will know #ragret like never before.
Snorkeling is adventurous. It’s cool. It makes you look bold and gritty and intrepid, and it’s a prime balancer so everyone knows you’re not just tossing your money clubbing and getting sloshed on your Eurotrip. Costa Brava’s waters are mind-blowingly blue, which means time to whip out the Go-Pro. Cue spam of you adorably swimming amongst the fishies and coral! Cue hilarious, endearing candids of you hopping around after accidentally stepping on a sea urchin! Cue that total babe who follows you sliding into your DMs!
The view from the cliffs on Costa B’s coastline is borderline orgasmic, which makes it the perfect backdrop for when you’re flaunting your daring, gutsy spirit (and your swimsuit-clad beach bod). Nothing will let the internet know how much of a badass you are than a sick vid of you plunging into the crystalline depths of the Balearic Sea from stomach-churning heights. You’ll look like Indiana Jones and Poseidon’s beautiful, ballsy illegitimate love child.
When our beautiful, stellar staff at the campsite aren’t busy cooking delicious meals and hosting beer pong tourneys, they spend their free time scouring the coast for the most righteous cliff-jumping locations. Thanks to their hard work, you can skip the only mildly gorgeous cliff-jumping spots and bee-line to the “holy shit my eyeballs have peaked” sites.
Yeah, we know, the standard beach pic is hella dusty. At this point, the typical booty shot and “casual” ab pics, typically paired up with some vom-inducing caption like “beaches be crazy” or “I’m a true oceanholic,” make us roll our eyes so far back into our skulls that we can see our last two braincells brawling for survival.
At Costa Brava, you won’t be tossing up average posts because you won’t be doing average shit. You can snag a pic of you being sporty while spiking a volleyball, or a snapshot looking majestic and tranquil as fuck while doing guided morning acroyoga. We’ll keep it on the DL that you actually swallowed an entire mouthful of sand diving for the ball, or that you were hungover and looked like you were in the most painful part of labor during the yoga sesh. The other ‘grammers will see you as a sandy, glistening, tan beach god.
With your new mates
You never know who you’ll meet at the beach camp, whether it’s your new best travel buddy, or hell, even the love of your life! And obviously you want to prove to your family back home that you’re not a friendless flog. This is the perfect op for you to snag a boomerang bumping glasses of sangria, looking hot as the Spanish sun while playing beach olympics with your new crew, or grinning like a goon while soaking up some rays next to your buds.
Maybe you’ve heard raunchy whispers of our infamous Wheel of Misfortune from other Stoke experiences like Oktoberfest and Running of the Bulls. Our Beach Camp at Costa Brava is no exception, and the Wheel provides perfect content for a saucy snap, whether you end up smashing a shoey out of a gnarly flip flop or doing a boob luge with a campsite cutie whose tent you’ll inevitably end up sharing. Either way, everyone will see how super cool, popular, and worldly you are, beer dripping down your chin, wild-eyed, full-hearted, surrounded by fellow legends.
Ready to transcend to true traveling ~influencer~ status? Join us at our new Costa Brava beach camp to make all the babes want you and all the peasants want to be you!
