Sand from the seacoast of Lloret
The sun, magical Mediterrian sea, palms and warm temperatures
You rarely meet Spanish people here! Only Tourists...
In a nutshell
Avoid high season! (unless you are looking for... you know... this kind of vacation)
Visit the beach, of course...
Lots of sunshine, soft drinks, food and sight seeing. Like the notice in the picture says: Now is the time!
Lloret de Mar, the main beach looking south ; in the background the tall hotel we used to call "Kim's Coiffeur" - or "Kim's" for short - after the huge...
I found this pic on the web and i liked it so much that i desided to use it.
I unfortunately don't remember the name of the site or the persons name.
Please excuse me for showing these pic, if you recognize it tell me and i will put your name and url on it if you will thanks
Pinya de Rosa
Last picture i put on the net about Pinya de rosa.
But it was such a nice garden you could take as many pictures you like and all as beautiful as can be.

La Taverna: Don't miss the paellas and jamon !
We go often on holidays to Pineda de Mar to the Hotel Merce. Every year before we come back to Scotland I like to invite my wife to this nice Restaurant of the same hotel owners. I reccommend you to mix some starters as tapas as calamari romana, spanish jam and a salad and...
Pull's & Iberics: The Plastic Palace & The Real Thing
On our first visit to Blanes we stopped at what I call "The Plastic Palaces" along the beach. These are usually small nearly outdoor bars selling snacks, cold drinks and teas and coffee.
On our first visit we enjoyed a cool vitamin enriched fruit juice as it was early in...
Lloret's Night Spots: Moonlight over Lloret
I'm not much of a nightlife person and was only once out in the dark when we returned from a day away. I could have been forgiven for thinking I was back in Scotland when I spotted the names on the bars :) but we really don't have this kind of tat back home!! We had a...
The Londoner: A Nice Club
With a name like this.. I couldn't miss it! I went here the first very night I was in Lloret and we had fun! The entrance fee is 12 euro and you get two drinks for free. We spent almost all the first night here and inside we met German and French girls and some boys from...
Direct Bus to Barcelona
Take the orange SARFA bus from the main bus station in Lloret to go direct to Barcelona. It's a one hour trip. Buy your tickets to Barcelona and for your return. It costs about E9.60 each way. Best get there early as it books up fast. There are two stations in Barcelona,...
Boat trips straight from the Beach
If you want to visit some of the coves and nearby resorts a boat trip maybe an option for you. The boats we saw departed from Fennals beach and was going to the harbour at Blanes. The boats sail every thirty minutes from 9.15 to 17.40 at a cost of 12 euros return just a bit...
Blanes Farmer's Market: Fresh Fruit & Vegetables Spices & Flower
The Farmers' Market in Blanes is a real local market popular for its fresh fruit and vegetables supplied by the farmers from Blanes and the surrounding area. The market is open mornings only Monday through to Saturday. We did see lots of fields of vegetables growing on the...
Discipline and Children
We past the local primary school here in Lloret a fair few times usually on our way to the bus station. We both work in our local primary school and were naturally drawn to the sound of children at play. The school like ours has two seperate playgrounds, one for older...
Two different languages
Here in Lloret De Mar as in the rest of Catalunya region people speaks two languages: Catalan and Spanish Castilian. I've always studied Castilian but I have to say that Catalan was more similar to Italian language and maybe to Sicilian dialect.... strange but true!
I didn't see this but heard about it whilst talking to a lady at the airport. Apparently a lady was sitting at a bar with her bag on the table, a man ran past, grabbed it and ran off. Of course trying to give chase in flip flops was never going to work.After nearly getting...
You may not like the views
I came to Lloret under no illusions of seeing great views from the hotel or indeed any other views from the resort. Here they tore nearly everything down to create a hotel land. I do like reflective photography and could not resist snapping the warning triangle on the...
Main road from the beach to the bus station
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.
Keep smiling, shake your head,...
Hiking route - what you see on is not what you get
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...
Don't go bare foot around the beach
The Costa Brava is known as the fierce coast and the rough sand - resembling very small hard stones can be a killer on your feet. Sandals and flip flops are OK but if the sea is kicking up a storm trainers or walking shoes are much more comfortable. The sand won't get so...
Plaza Constitucion in Calella is where you will find the government buildings along with some smart restaurants and some small tourist shops. The Plaza is currently under some refurbishment with many of the buildings being cleaned. They have already created some seating here...
Stroll of the Sea
Calella's Stroll of the Sea is named in recognition of Manuel Puigvert the town's former mayor from 1895 - 1904 A shady avenue lined with dwarf ornamental sycamores makes for a pleasant stroll and I would imagine a perfect place to sit to avoid the summer's heat, the weather...
Blue Skies and Palm Trees
I love the beaches in Lloret, in the winter months (March in particular) it is not yet crowded and most days it is warm enough to walk along the shore and sit in the sun.
I miss the narrow streets, the people, the atmosphere. To some it may seem crowded and not much to see...
