Lloret de Mar
Boasting a history spanning one-thousand years, Lloret de Mar is anything but a tired resort town. First class beach facilities, energetic nightlife and stunning vistas consistently draw in younger crowds.
Holidays in Lloret de Mar
Enviously sited on Spain’s Costa Brava between Girona and Barcelona, Lloret de Mar’s 34,000-strong population is swelled by thousands of excitable holidaymakers each and every year.
Arriving to enjoy the lush Mediterranean climate, Blue Flag beaches and supreme vantage spots that provide excellent photography opportunities, this large resort town is teeming with plenty of bars, bistros and restaurants. With every amenity taken care of, you can see why the couples’ package holiday has thrived here.
Featuring a large concentration of alfresco nightspots and discotheques that stay open to the small hours, Lloret de Mar isn’t merely a rowdy, one-dimensional resort town. After all, attractions like the Verdaguer Cultural Centre, Gardens of Santa Clotilde and Dona Marinera monument ensure there is plenty to see and do during daytime too.
One of Lloret de Mar’s strongest assets is its appealing Mediterranean climate that is sizzling in the summer, yet warm and manageable outside peak season.
Experiencing average temperatures of 21-23°C between June and August, December to March averages of 8-11°C mean the winter season is still tempting for those craving a quieter break.
That said, October and November are two of Lloret de Mar’s rainier months. But with the hours of sunshine fluctuating between 7-8 hours, there’s still more than enough time to lay down your beach towel and dip your toes in the water while rocking the shades as you walk the scenic seafront promenade.
Things to do on holiday in Lloret de Mar
Given tourism has not only survived but thrived in this southern region of the Costa Brava for many years, you can be sure to find an exciting range of things to see and do during your trip.
Amble a stunning coastal path
While many seaside holiday destinations boast their own coastal walking routes, Lloret de Mar’s ‘Beaches Walk’ is truly out of this world.
The rocky headlands that protrude out to sea offer visitors incredibly idyllic vantage spots with uninterrupted views along sandy stretches of beach at Fenals and the 1.6km long main beach in town.
Requiring no expert level rambling skills, Lloret de Mar’s coastal path actually winds its way a distance of 9.4km, connecting the beach communities of Santa Cristina and Canyelles. Visitors will be in no rush to complete the route however, with dramatic cliff faces, pretty coves and the prominent Dona Marinera statue constantly tempting tourists to stop, stare and appreciate just how beautiful the scenery is here.
Another noteworthy point of interest en route is Sant Joan, a 11th century watchtower with its unmistakable turrets providing a wow factor when discovered by first-time visitors.
Resorts in Lloret de Mar
Just over an hour away by car from the cosmopolitan hub that is Barcelona, Lloret de Mar is an extensive resort when taken at large. With the beach communities of Platja de Fenals to the west and Canyelles to the east offering plenty of places to stay, tourists may also choose to stay in Lloret de Mar’s vibrant heart.
Platja de Fenals offers an exclusive air of seclusion given the natural shelter provided by a rocky mound separating this district from central Lloret de Mar. Here, holidaymakers can catch rays on a wide, sandy Blue Flag beach with clear waters. Rent a hammock, parasail or water-ski with this forested stretch of coastline truly yielding an appealing feeling of detachment.
The beach community of Canyelles is ideal for those seeking a temporary escape from the busier town centre. Forested cliffs invoke the feel of an island paradise with an idyllic small harbour operating short boat trips along the coast to appreciate Lloret de Mar from an alternative angle.
As for the main town itself, it boasts a 1.6km golden sandy beach of its own but amenities and attractions close by underpin its popularity. The Avinguda Just Marles I Vilarrodona strip, which cuts its way Lloret de Mar’s old town, is where the best clubbing experiences can be enjoyed. Zoo Disco, Disco Londoner and Disco Colossos stay open late, awash with international party crowds and energetic bar staff serving every popular concoction.
Adrenaline pumping experiences close by
While Lloret de Mar town centre is full of entertainment appealing to younger crowds, a few out-of-town day trips will really get the adrenaline pumping.
A local go-karting complex as well as the Costa Brava’s best loved water park – Water World – represent awesome day trips to remember your Spanish getaway by.
Only a five-minute journey out of town, Go-Karts Lloret de Mar enables couples to dabble in some friendly rivalry as they attempt to put on their best Lewis Hamilton impression. A complimentary bus service from the town’s bus station streamlines access to the karting complex as well as Water World that sits close by.
The most fun-filled way to beat the Spanish heat, this large water park is jam-packed with speed slides, raft-based flumes, a wave pool and many other brightly coloured tubes. With plenty of food stalls, grassy picnic areas and even a bungee jump on site, entire days can be based here.
Bars, clubs and everything in between
Undoubtedly the Costa Brava’s number one nightlife destination, Lloret de Mar’s large assortment of international drinking holes, themed clubs and karaoke bars make for the most indulgent parties.
With Lloret de Mar trodden by top global DJs each summer, its more than possible to dance the night away to the small hours, no matter your musical taste. Whether you’re into your fast-paced electronic dance music or searching for 90s R&B vibes, there will be a bar or club for you.
With most clubs dotted along the Avinguda Just Marles I Vilarrodona thoroughfare, Disco Tropics is one of the town’s best loved nightclubs. Big enough to house 1,200 people, rotating lasers, VIP lounges and a decorated hall of fame that includes Sean Paul, Snoop Dogg and Steve Aoki provide a premier clubbing experience you’ll be dying to tell your friends about.
Unwind amidst peaceful greenery
With the blazing summer heat and A.M. partying sure to take its toll on even the most energetic souls, there are much worse places to unwind than Lloret de Mar’s Gardens of Santa Clotilde.
Spread across 29,000 sq m, rediscover inner peace as you slowly stroll through these expertly designed hillside gardens that are a far cry from the hustle and bustle of the evening before.
Not only featuring stunning coastal views, these Italian-influenced gardens are scattered with marble statues that appear distinguished between perfectly trimmed hedgerows.
Visitors will instantly recognise that there is an intentional lack of flowers in these gardens. The powerful sea of green looks even more spectacular with the turquoise waters of the Mediterranean forging a dreamy vista in the background.
