Fenals/Santa Cristina Fiesta

This weekends fiesta got off to a good start yesterday evening with a very messy foam party!

Hundreds of kids and adults joined in the fun as the foam billowed out and they all got absolutely covered in the stuff... the showers on the beach came in handy to rinse it all off afterwards!

Placa Nova
A 3 day fiesta centered around Fenals is taking place as from this Friday 30th August, lots of activities are planned so its hoped that the weather stays fine! Some roads in the area will be closed so be warned if your coming into Fenals as parking places will be very limited during the fiesta.
Early Friday evening along the Fenals seafront carpark is where the fiesta starts with childrens games, animation and inflatables, later that night there will be music and dancing.
Saturday at 11am you can try the Catalan 'delicacy' Buttifarras and have a go at drinking the local wine from the porron! this will be taking place in Placa Nova Fenals. As usual the fireworks display will be at 10.30pm down on the beach with music and dancing afterwards.
Sunday evening there will be live music in Placa Nova starting at approx 7pm, last year this was a great night which went on until the early hours! there's just a few of the events I've listed but there will be lots more going on in between...looks like its going to be a busy weekend for me with the camera !

Fun in the sun in Lloret!

 This week we have seen packed beaches and people making the most of their time in Lloret de Mar before the main holiday season is over. The weather for the last week of August has so far been a little variable but not so much that it spoiled any ones fun! 
 The Catamarean cruise heading out from Fenals beach to pick up passengers at other beaches for their all inclusive on board party as they sail the coast!

A bucket and spade is all thats needed to keep the kids entertained!
Para sailing, boat trips and pedalos - its all here in Lloret and Fenals.

Lloret de Mar sale time

The last of the summer sales in Lloret this morning.

 Although there didn't seem to be as many stalls as previous sales the ones that had their goods on set out on stalls did seem to be doing quite well. Maybe some stores had been keeping an eye on the weather forecast and decided not to bother, because rain was forecast today and also for part of next week.

If this forecast is right it looks as though we will be getting some rain today, but saying that the sun is now making an appearance!

This years Clon Festival is coming to a close for another year tomorrow night Friday 23rd Aug. The last band of this years event to play will be  El Ultimo Tribute - a tribute to 'El Ultimo de la Fila'

Lloret de Mar - Fenals

Fenals beach is situated in a very priviledged location surounded by woodland and just a few hotels, villa's and apartments giving it a somewhat more peaceful atmosphere to its larger and more well known neighbour  Lloret. Sometimes if holidaying in this area people don't realise they are not actually in Lloret centre, we have often been stopped in the streets by people who ask if we live here and could we direct them to the nightclubs as they cant find them! Fenals I'm glad to say doesn't have any clubs but does have just a few very nice bars and restaurants, ideal if you prefer a much more sedate night out!

Fenals beach does get get busy during the month of August but usually with families and couples not the groups of young students we often see on Lloret beach.

Lloret de Mar Nightlife

Mid August in Lloret de Mar and the streets are now packed every night of the week with people looking for the best nightlife venues. Llorets nightclubs are all centered around Avenida Just Marles, easy to find as this is the road which leads directly from the beach where you can find two of the coolest lounge bars in Lloret...the Zoo Beach Club and Blue Bar. Just make your way up the road towards the bright lights and this is where the most popular venues are located.


 The Londoner, Hot Spot, Colossus, Tropics, Mobys are just a few of the best known clubs on Avenida Just Marles but take a detour into the side streets to find many more well established venues which have made Lloret de Mar the Costa Brave nightlife capital for many years!
