Lloret de Mar Overview
Established resort: Lloret de Mar holidays 2021 have been a favourite choice for the Brits since the 1960s. This means that it’s had plenty of time to accommodate to British holidaymakers, so you can expect a huge selection of bars, restaurants and activities aimed at the British crowd.
Activity-based holidays: Another result of being a built-up resort is that there’s plenty to do on holidays in Lloret de Mar. There’s a huge water park near Lloret de Mar named Waterworld which claims to be one of the largest in Europe. You can also expect to find a medieval castle, elegant botanical gardens and many beautiful churches.
Many beaches: There are over ten beaches in Lloret de Mar, with the main beach Playa de Lloret being a 2km long stretch of golden sand.
Huge choice of nightlife: There are over a hundred bars in Lloret de Mar, so you can imagine it attracts a rather lively crowd after dark. The partying here is very much aimed at British people on their holidays and there’s a street near the old town which is literally lined with bars from end to end.
Attractions in Lloret de Mar
Church of Sant Roma: This multi-coloured, multi-textured church in Lloret de Mar looks like something out of an artist’s dream rather than a place of worship. Initially built in a Gothic style, it was radically redesigned in the 20th century and now has something of a resemblance to the colourful tiered spires of the Kremlin.
Saint Joan’s Castle: This sandy beige fairytale-like castle peers out amongst a rocky cliff surrounded by green trees and shrubs. It actually has a long and illustrious history dating back to the 11th century and it was used as a military defence during the war with England in 1805.
Puig de Castellet: This archaeological excavation may be of more interest to history buffs than anyone else, as it’s largely just a mound of ruins for the foundations of a watchtower. Nevertheless, it’s extremely old (dating back to 200BC) and is important evidence of Lloret de Mar’s Iberian roots.
Activities in Lloret de Mar
Waterworld: Considered to be one of the best water parks in Spain, with over fifteen rides including the super-fast Xtreme Mountain, the huge Rafting River and the twisting Storm tunnels, you’re certain to have a fun time here. If you’re on family holidays to Lloret de Mar, young children will also enjoy the more sedate activities in the Piscine La Calma and Kiddie Island.
Santa Clotilde Gardens: Beautiful gardens landscaped by Nicolau Tuduri. They have been created in an Italian Renaissance style with many whitewashed sculptures, trimmed green hedges and mossy lakes. The location of the gardens are just as stunning too, they’re perched high in the mountains of Lloret de Mar with wonderful views of the landscape of Costa Brava.
Modernist Cemetery: A cemetery may seem an unlikely tourist destination for beach holidays, but this one is truly remarkable. It’s rather like a work of art, as each tomb is elaborately designed with ornate floral patterns and sculptures of angels. Many of the artists who created the tombs were influenced by the great Catalan architect Gaudi, and it certainly shows in their intricate designs.
Beaches in Lloret de Mar
Playa Lloret: The largest of all the beaches in Lloret de Mar, Playa Lloret is 1.5km long and around 50m wide. It gently curves to form a golden sandy bay protected by headlands at both ends. And with Lloret de Mar being such a popular resort for summer holidays, it’s very well facilitated with showers and toilets, as well as a big selection of water sports. There’s a long, clean promenade which follows the coast and is lined with all manner of bars and restaurants to suit every taste.
Playa de Fenals: About half the length of Playa Lloret, this golden sandy beach is on the southern side Lloret de Mar. It’s also a little more secluded in the sense that it’s backed by a thick forest of pine trees. That’s not to say it’s not popular, and this particular bit of coast can get rather crowded during the summer holidays.
El Codolar: A rather rocky, quiet beach which is only around 50m in both length and width. However, what makes this cove really special is its location. It’s literally right by Saint Joan’s Castle, giving you the wonderful sight of this medieval structure while you sunbathe.
Restaurants in Lloret de Mar
Orient Express: You won’t find many particularly authentic Spanish offerings on the menu here; the food is much more aimed at British tourists on their holidays. However, what you will find is beautifully cooked home comfort food and classy decor kitted out to emulate the famous Orient Express trains.
America: Being such a touristy resort, it can sometimes be difficult to find traditional Spanish restaurants on holidays to Lloret de Mar. That’s where (the oddly named) America comes in. They serve huge portions of Paella and other Spanish classics like tortilla (a delicately spiced omelette) and fried squid.
Tobago: It’s all about meat in this traditional steakhouse. As you may have guessed, steak is the best (and most prominent) dish on the menu, but the sticky spare ribs are highly recommended too.
Nightlife in Lloret de Mar
Party central: Offering certainly the liveliest holidays in Costa Brava, there are over 100 bars and clubs in Lloret de Mar. Most of the bars are on Avinguda Just Marles I Vilarronda street near to the old town. There are several clubs which are famed for their rowdy atmosphere and loud music – just how the British crowd on their summer holidays like it! The main ones are Londoners, Moby’s and Bumpers. Of course, that’s not forgetting Disco Hollywood and Tropics (which has five rooms for even more mayhem!). There are simply too many clubs and bars in Lloret de Mar to list, but if you feel like having a great party on your holidays, just head for the main strip and see where the night takes you!
Spanish themed nights: It doesn’t have to be all about clubbing in Lloret de Mar, there are actually some excellent Spanish themed nights which offer a much more relaxed way to enjoy your holidays. La Siesta is a case in point – it’s set in a grand 17th century Spanish mansion. It’s the perfect place for the dinner shows held here that are accompanied with traditional music and Flamenco dancing.
Shopping in Lloret de Mar
Local markets: The shops in Lloret de Mar are generally considered to be of poor quality, selling largely unoriginal touristy items. However, every Tuesday is market day and it gives you a good opportunity to see some traditional Spanish craftware as well as fresh local produce, cheap clothes and (the more typical) souvenirs. If you get peckish after shopping all the stalls, there are plenty of places selling hot food like spit roasted chicken or hot paella too.
