Gorgeous golden beaches meet casinos and cocktails in Lloret de Mar, one of the liveliest resort towns on the Costa Brava. Come here for the sun and stay to explore the city’s tranquil gardens, secluded coves and endless coastal trails.
Things to see
Get your cultural fix at the medieval Castle of Sant Joan, nestled on a rocky outcrop between Lloret de Mar and Fenals Beach. A climb to the top of the 11th-century tower reveals spectacular views of the rugged coast, while the heritage trail tells the castle’s rich history through informative displays.
Nourish your spirit and relax your soul in the beautiful Santa Clotilde Gardens, designed by famous Spanish architect, Nicolau Maria Rubió i Tudurí. The clifftop gardens feature stunning sea views, overflowing greenery and marble sculptures.
Take a dip at Lloret Beach, a tropical oasis where you can nap under a parasol, enjoy thrilling watersports or grab some tapas on the palm tree-lined promenade. For a quiet retreat, escape to Santa Cristina Beach, a protected pocket surrounded by nature, or Cala Banys, a rocky cove ideal for fishing and snorkelling.
Want to stay active? Follow one of Lloret de Mar’s many sign-posted trails that stretch along the coast or wind their way inland. For spectacular seascapes, follow the 10-kilometre coastal path or immerse yourself amongst the Mediterranean countryside on the 15-kilometre Cami Vell trail.
