    Main road from the beach to the bus station

    by SLK Written Aug 14, 2009

    I would say the whole of the main drag and a couple of side streets leading from the beach towards the bus station is a tourist trap. Not that anyone is really pushy but it reminds me of Blackpool with store keepers encouraging you to come in.

    Unique Suggestions: Keep smiling, shake your head, ' no gracias'.

    Fun Alternatives: smile & keep on walking!

  • Hiking route - what you see on is not what you get

    by dainiusm Written Feb 1, 2009

    There quite a few alternatives for hiking in the surrounding areas of Lloret. Local tourist bureau issues a nicely compiled map of hiking routes. BUT - it is not as friendly, as it may seem from the map. There are very few signs directing you along the way. If you think it is self-explanatory, you may just not realize the fun of climbing up and down the steep streets of seaside towns looking for a specific turn that is not marked in any way.
    We have taken the route from in between Platja deCaneylles and Sa Cala Gran. The latter actually could not be accessed, because a local (Russian, judging from loud speaking) rich men fences. Don't get me wrong, the scenery is beautiful, but not in the +32C, when you know that you still have to cover 4 km in unknown direction.

    Unique Suggestions: If you are really up for hiking, go to google earth and carefully study the street names, so that you can specify all turns and paths. And - take water with you.

    Discos for the senseless

    by lostinparadies Written Oct 17, 2005

    Unfortunately the new attraction for the young is the new sheep-formation, where so called guides (they are not, they no nothing about Spain and hardly speak spanish) driving groups of 200 till 500 people from shell like buildings, so called discos ( nothing like a REAL disco ). They are annoying locals and everybody who lives here. A proper traveller would be never seen near them.

    Fun Alternatives: Have a look out where the young spanish hang out. La Carpa is great on the weekends.

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It's great to sit on the beachfront and have drinks and let the world go by...........but do not forget the these places have to pay extra tax and that will be put straight towards you bill. So expect to pay up to 3 times more for whatever you having.
