Overview

Lloret de Mar is located about 70 km north-east from Barcelona on the Costa Brava. The city with more than a thousand-year old history is a party town now, about 100 nightclubs and bars make the city a more attractive place mainly for many young people from all countries. People who love the beach during the day and parties at night, are at the right place. A quiet spot can hardly be found here.

Unless you are here in winter, then you can enjoy a lot of sand beaches and the beautiful landscape of the Costa Brava.The climate is Mediterranean, therefore very warm in summer, but not extremely hot. In the winter chilly and too cold to swim, but it barely goes below 0 degrees. In Lloret de Mar, two languages are spoken: Spanish (Castilian) and Catalan. In the tourism sector people also understand English and French.

Coves of deep blue sea, beaches of golden sand, natural parks, medieval towns, the works of Salvador Dalí… This is the tempting combination of Girona’s Costa Brava. This is the area of Catalonia from Blanes to Portbou with fascinating cities like Girona and old fishing villages with little whitewashed houses like Cadaqués. Undoubtedly a great place to enjoy the pleasant climate of the Mediterranean, visit some of its Michelin-starred restaurants, or follow the Empordà D.O. Wine Route. The Costa Brava is always a good choice for a holiday destination.
