Lloret de Mar Boats trips

There are several ways in which you can take to the sea right from the beaches at Lloret de Mar.
For a thrilling trip on either the parasailing, waterskiing, skibus or flyfish then you can find these on both Lloret and Fenals beach.
Take a look at  Fenals Watersports Centre site for more details.

 For a trip to other local beaches then you only have to book your trip at one of the seafront kiosks, all boats have on board bar for drinks and snacks. On the way to Tossa the boats pull into one of the rocky coves giving you the opportunity to see into the rocky caves and also views from the underwater deck.

Catamaran Sensation
 All inclusive trips with the 2 catamaran companies prove to be very popular with the younger holiday makers and also with stag and hen parties. These trips pick up at several resorts and take you to a secluded Costa Brava cove to party!

Lloret Clon Festival 2013

Yesterday was the first of this years Clon Festival events with the Beatles tribute band 'Abbey Road'

This time the festival got off to a different start with a very successful early evening event for the children, giving the scene an unusual backdrop of the sea crashing up on the rocks behind the stage. Abbey Road were due back on stage at 10.30, I'm sure that the hundreds of people who turned up to watch them had a fantastic time just as all the kids did for the early show....excellent!

More photos here ..... 'ABBEY ROAD 2013'

The next band will be a tribute to Red Hot Chili Peppers the 'Funky Monks' see them on stage at 10.30pm 9th August.

Lloret de Mar Fireworks 2013

Instead of going over to watch the annual fireworks display from the beach as we usually do, we had the idea of trying to see them from a distance and found a very good spot in between Lloret and Fenals. No photos this time as they do tend to all look the same after taking them year after year, but here's something a little different - 2 videos of the full 20 minute display but all crammed into less than 2 minutes!

Evening beach views of Lloret

Fenals Beach

Just on the edge of the hectic nightlife area of Lloret you will find a completely different atmosphere - taking a relaxing evening stroll along the beaches of Fenals and Lloret de Mar is the ideal way to wind down after your HOT day on the beach or a busy day trekking round the shops looking for those holiday souvenirs to take back home!

Lloret de Mar - places to visit

After living in Lloret for almost 10 years we have never been to the top of the Sant Juan tower which we can see from our home in Fenals, we just didn't realise how good the views would be from the top. We have walked past the entrance to the tower countless times however yesterday we did  climb all the stairs to the top...and the amazing views seen here are the result!
Looking up from the inside.

Craig Mallon - an appeal

I've been asked by David Swindle the Consultant Independent Reviewer supporting Craig's family if I would make another appeal on the blog and my Facebook page requesting any information from who may have been in Lloret de Mar on the night that Craig sadly lost his life during the early hours of Saturday 19th May 2012
If you or anyone you know were in Lloret that weekend please take a moment to view the Facebook appeal page by following this link -

Thanking you in advance for any information.

Santa Cristina Festival - Lloret

The flotilla of boats which made their way to Santa Cristina this morning were on their way at 8pm, much too early for us to be out taking photos! but looking down the coast from the Sant Juan tower later this morning just a few of the boats are still gathered off the coast as all those who made the journey go to the tiny Santa Cristina church for mass and the tuck into their traditional meal of  Catalan stew 'estofado' before making their way back to Lloret beach.

Lloret De Mar Beach

With temperatures into the 30s almost everyday what better way to cool off than to spend some time lazing about on the beach  and taking the occasional dip in the sea!

Lloret - Santa Cristina events

Once again we had ideal weather for all yesterdays events for the Santa Cristina Festival the Costa Brava Reggae fest near the castle was the first stop for us, nothing much happening there just a few stalls selling not much at all...I suspect it was a bit more lively as the night wore on!
Next on the agenda were the 'giants' in Placa Torrent - always great fun. Here they are gathering in the square before taking their stroll towards the the Town Hall square...but for us it was time to go eat!

Lloret de Mar Apartment to Rent

A beautiful 2 bedroom apartment in Fenals is available to rent for the holiday season. Ideally suitable for 4 people although there is a spare bed suitable for a child so can accommodate 5 easily. It is located in a quiet area only a short walk to  picturesque Fenals and Santa Clotilde gardens, close to good bars, restaurants and supermarkets. Lloret de Mar centre is approximately 20 minutes walk away, but the local Fenals-Lloret bus stops right out side the apartment building.
