Apartments in Lloret de Mar
One of the jewels of the Costa Brava, Lloret de Mar is a Catalonian resort town located 70km northeast of Barcelona, nestled between Blanes and Tossa de Mar. As one of the most popular destinations in the Mediterranean it boasts fine golden and white sands, a family-friendly coastline and a vibrant nightlife scene catering to young, free and singles. Its beautiful Blue Flag beaches along the Costa Brava attract millions of tourists each year, while the famous Cami de Ronda coastal path near Cadaques stretches 6km from Tossa de Mar all the way to France and Verdon Natural Regional Park. Holidaymakers will find that Lloret de Mar is a town of contrasts, from the lively modern promenade, bars and clubs to the unspoiled nature routes, quiet coves and ancient relics of the old town.
The beaches along this part of the Costa Brava are all Blue Flag, from secluded coves to lively sun-worshipping spots. Sa Caleta beach is dotted with colourful fishing boats and home to the medieval hilltop Castle of Sant Joan, where its towers overlook the piercing blue Mediterranean. Those looking to follow the crowd will enjoy people watching on lively Lloret Beach in the centre of town, stretching 1.5km long. Or perhaps you'll prefer the unspoiled beauty of Cala Futedera, one of the most beautiful beaches in Spain, also known as the 'Bay of 300 steps.'
Once a small seafaring village, this coastal paradise is now brimming with tourists looking for a lively escape under the Mediterranean sun. For families, there are plenty of things to see and do, from making a splash at Water World to adventure playgrounds and day trip boat excursions. Family-friendly beaches like Santa Cristina, Fenals and Cala Boadella offer peace and tranquility away from the crowds, with plenty of facilities and water sports to enjoy. Those looking to let their hair down can follow the party crowd along the palm-lined promenade as it comes to life after sundown, with some nightclubs open 24 hours and cosy British-style pubs. But there is more to Lloret de Mar than idyllic beaches and lively seafront bars. See the gorgeous coastline in all its wonderful glory from Santa Clotilde Gardens, or walk one of the coastal routes to Sant Joan's Castle, dominating the landscape with its 11th century medieval ruins. For a change of scene, the beautiful town of Blanes is less than a 20-minute car drive away.
For those who want a cultural injection, the Parish Church of Sant Romà is a must-see for its stunning Italian Renaissance architecture. Santa Clotilde Gardens on the cliff tops between Lloret De Mar and Blanes is also not to be missed with its mythical sculptures, early 20th century architecture and breathtaking views of the Mediterranean. Travel a little further afield to Palafolls, less than a 15-minute car drive east along the coast and discover the ruins of Palafolls Castle, previously a medieval military building. Kids will love Water World, a massive water park with slides, rides and wave pools galore.
Lloret De Mar provides an endless choice of tapas bars, restaurants, pubs, clubs and beach bars along the promenade and scattered around the old town. The Castle of Sant Joan lit up against the night sky provides the perfect setting for an ambient meal. Clubs are open to the early hours and you'll find that restaurants here provide both a local and international cuisine. If the party scene is not your thing, a little hidden gem called Cala Banys is one of the most scenic bars in the Costa Brava; the perfect spot for a romantic escape away from the crowds!
