Lloret del Mar is one of the most frequented summering places on the Costra Brava. Belonging to the county of La Selva in Girona, it has many excellent beaches of heavy sand, and magnificent castle views. Due to its numerous coves of equal quality and beauty, none tend to be overly crowded.
Five of its beaches are distinguished by the Blue Flag of the EU.
There are beaches for all tastes. La Boadella in particular is the only beach in the region where nudism is practiced: with a mix of sand and vegetation, nudists gather at the far end of the Boadella beach. Some, like Playa Tortuga, are difficult to access, and the lack of tourist facilities and its rocky composition leave it unaccustomed to visitors.
The best known is the beach of Lloret, an urban seashore with comprehensive tourist facilities and infrastructure.
Before the arrival of tourism Lloret del Mar was the prime vacation city for Catalan families, and they left their mark on the cuisine offered in this region, with suquet and fish being one of the most typical dishes.
The citys numerous monuments give evidence to its grand history. You can pass by the Santa Clotilde Gardens, visit the Castell den Plaja, Iberian towns and numerous hermitages, or enjoy yourselves at Waterworld, the aquatic park.
Furthermore, Lloret counts on outstanding night life, attracting numerous DJs and putting on concerts to light up its nights. There are discoteques, pubs, and bars locales for all tastes. This nightlife zone is centered on the Avenida Just Marles and the surrounding streets.
