Lloret de Mar Beaches

As well as been known for the excellent nightlife Lloret de Mar is the ideal resort for a great family holiday...with the beaches been a firm favourite for younger members of the family. I'm often asked what facilities there are for the kids in Lloret and I'd say one of the best is the choice of beaches. (there are 5 fantastic beaches here) Over the next few days I will give you an idea of just what each of the beaches has to offer for the kids and also the grown ups!
Today we are at the main beach of Lloret de Mar, which is 1.6km long and has a very nice promenade which has just undergone a complete makeover just a few months ago. The traffic flow has been made into a one-way system, giving a more peaceful environment for the pedestrians.
The sand on Lloret beach however may not be to some peoples liking as its quite course -  so not very good for the kids to make sandcastles! But one of the benefits I like about it is that its easily rubbed off when you have been laid sunbathing so you don't get that sticky feeling as you do with fine sand. At either end of the beach are small rocky coves which you may find is safer for the kids as the water does not slope into the sea as steeply as the main stretch of beach.
Watersports, jet skis, scuba diving and boat trips are all based on the beach as well as several beach bars....not forgetting the lifeguards, first aid centres, and kids club (in the height of the season)  Hotels, bars, restaurants and a variety of shops line the promenade, and of course you can also get any travel info you need from the tourist office....that is if you don't find it here first!

Nicely put Jackie. I prefer this type of sand for the same reason, although it does get hot to walk on in the height of summer. I've only been to 3 of the beaches so look forward to seeing and reading about the others :-)
