Blanes beach holidays
The beaches are the main attraction for the vast majority of tourists but they are never overcrowded. The resorts’ 4 kilometre of coastline consists of wide sandy bays and small rocky coves which welcomes tourists throughout the year. Several of the beaches have won blue flag awards for cleanliness. The biggest and most popular tourist beach is S’Abanell, only 300 metres from the town. There is a seafront promenade with bars and restaurants, perfect for lunch and to take a break from the midday heat. Deck chairs and pedaloes are available for hire and there is also a wide range of watersports facilities on offer, including paragliding, sailing and windsurfing.

If you are a nature lover, a trip to the Botanical gardens is a must with its collection of sub-tropical flowers, trees and shrubs flourishing alongside the Catalonian Mountains. The resort also has great shopping facilities, with over 650 shops, modern boutiques and supermarkets.

There are almost 100 restaurants to choose from, so you will be spoilt for choice. The restaurants offer a range of cuisines from burger bars to more upmarket international cuisine and even traditional Catalan dishes. There is something to suit every taste and budget.
