Things to do in Blanes
It's hard to believe that Blanes was once nothing more than a quiet fishing village; it has grown into a top quality resort offering a great destination for sun seekers from all over the world. Despite the town's rapid development, Blanes gives an authentic picture of traditional Spanish life. Street markets, a jam-packed festival calendar and colourful displays of folk dancing ensure that a taste of the old remains part of the attraction. Important historical buildings to visit include the medieval castle of St Joan. Or take a trip to Roses and discover its beautiful sandy beaches.
The two mile stretch of coastline makes it possible to avoid the busy main beach. Explore the rocky coves and sandy bays during your holiday in Blanes. Take a trip to the Passeig de Mar market (every Monday morning) to pick up some souvenirs. For more retail therapy, take advantage of over 700 shops in the town. After you have worked up an appetite - spending money is , after all, hungry work - take your pick of over 150 restaurants. The most popular restaurants with tourists are those along the promenade, while locals prefer the smaller places towards the town. Try Cafe Terrassan for some of the best tapas you are ever likely to taste, and head to Shamrock for great, friendly service and reasonable prices.
Nightlife might involve a pint or two at one of the many British-themed pubs, or a short trip up the coast to nearby Lloret de Mar for a huge choice of lively clubs. Make sure you stay in Blanes at the end of July. This is when the Costa Brava International Fireworks Contest takes place - not to be missed!
