Lloret de Mar Events

Good news for all bikers in the area...

'Harley Butts' are returning to Lloret de Mar for another action packed week end, last year was the 1st time in town for this event and proved to be a massive success!

The official dates are Fri 11th - Sunday 13th June but I'm sure we'll see many of the custom built bikes making their way into town well before!

Lloret de Mar - Promenade Bars

It used to be that the bars which line the promenade in front of the town hall were just about the dearest in town!
How things have changed now though, you can get coffee and cake for €2.50. One of the bars is serving 1 litre of Sangria with 5 tapas for only €7. Low prices like this were unheard of at these bars, so maybe we'll see the seats at these places filling up again!

Childrens Deaths in Lloret de Mar

After the tragic news of the death of 2 two young children in a room at the Miramar Hotel on Tuesday 18th in Lloret, the news agencies and TV cameras are still in place in front of the town hall on the seafront near the hotel. News of this awful crime is emerging all the time so it looks as though they will be there for quite a while yet.

Lloret de Mar - Cala Banys

Walking through the woods above the rocks at Cala Banys between Lloret and Fenals you can see all kinds of birds. This photo of a Jay was taken there only last week. We have seen red squirrels up there but they are too quick for us to get a photo....may be one day we'll catch them unawares!
