Lloret de Mar, September 2020

 After what has been a very quiet year for Lloret de Mar we are now into September, a month which should be very busy with lots of tourists. Now that the children are back at school and the airfares are normally cheaper Lloret is in the sad situation where most hotels have closed through lack of guests and bars/restraunts etc are having to decide whether its worth their while staying open or close much earlier for the season. This video taken today (16th September) shows how deserted the town is just now!

Lloret de Mar market day.

 Lloret de Mar market is very popular with both local residents and tourists. There is always bargains to be found...whether its clothing, handbags, underwear, household goods or fruit and veg! It is held every Tuesday morning opening between 9-10am, and located on the edge of town approx 10mins walk from Llorets bus station.

Lloret in Lockdown 2020

Lloret de Mar seems a very strange place these days, all residents are on strict lockdown rules owing to the nasty Covid 19 virus which has affected just about every country in the world. At this time of year the streets, beaches, bars, restaurants and clubs should be packed with tourists from far and wide. Instead the streets are deserted giving Lloret a very strange atmosphere. I have done a short video showing Lloret as it looked today 6-5-2020.

F1 Barcelona 2020, test days.

For all the F1 fans out there did you know you can actually visit the circuit to watch the pre-season testing of the cars at Circuit de Catalunya? My visit yesterday was a fantastic experience at a very small entry fee compared to the actual race costs.
This years ticket prices start at €59 for adults, which I thought was excellent value for the experience of been able to access areas otherwise not normally available unless you pay hundreds of euros on race days!

Lloret de Mar storm 2020

So far this winter has been very mild here along the Costa Brava coast, but this month storm Gloria changed all that and has caused damage and brought chaos to most of the coastal areas in Spain. Here in Lloret de Mar however we were not as badly affected as some resorts up and down the coast. Here is my video of the beaches of Fenals and Lloret taken after the worst of the weather had passed, there is still a lot of work to be done to repair damage, but work was quickly started to try get the town back to some normality.
