Lloret de Mar Shopping

The end of August we see a vast change in Lloret not only with the weather but the shops who were mainly catering for the tourist market start to restock for the winter season to cater more for the locals. Shops which have been holding their summer sales recently also need to clear out the last of their summer ranges, these are mainly the fashion and shoe stores. For just one day only on  Sunday 5th September the stores in the main shopping area 's in Lloret are allowed to set up stalls outside their stores and bring the last of their sales goods out onto the streets in order to sell the last items. Stalls will be also placed around the church and in front of the town early to catch the best bargains!

Where Are The Tourists?

After what seems like weeks and weeks of endless hot sun the weather suddenly changed last week bringing the odd thunder storm and at times heavy rain, not very nice for the holiday makers! The Spanish annual summer break began on 1st August, which should have seen the hotels and business's in town full to bursting point, but sadly there doesn't seem to be as many tourists here to what there usually is in August. The photos here of Fenals beach were taken on the first fine day after the recent rain fall, normally we would have expected to see beach full at this time of year...but no!!

Lloret de Mar Nightlife.

Lloret de Mar is often referred to as the biggest and liveliest resort on the Costa Brava. The nightlife here carries on from dusk till dawn until you just cant party any longer! The vast number of nightclubs and disco's etc are all located in what the locals refer to as the 'west end'
You will find most of the clubs on one main strip in Lloret, its just one long road of the biggest and best clubs you could ever imagine!

Lloret is a great place to come for the nightlife even if its just for a 3-4 days break. Within only 30 minutes drive from Girona airport none of your precious time is wasted with long transfers between your hotel and airport. The airport bus from Girona can bring you from the airport and take you directly to the bus station in the centre of Lloret de Mar for only 8€.
Pay some of the best clubs a visit now by clicking on the link here > NIGHTLIFE

Lloret de Mar Beach

This photo of the beach in Lloret de Mar is taken from Sa Caleta area just by the castle, I always used to prefer to sun bathe here when I used to come to Lloret on holiday. Its quite rocky here so you have be careful if you go into the sea, but for families its ideal as its quite a narrow stretch of sand so you can keep a close eye on the kids. Plus the slope into the sea is not as steep as other parts of the beach.
