One thing is for sure: Lloret de Mar’s reputation precedes it. Since you’re most likely here to party, you’d better stick to the train than take a car – only an hour later, you’ll be all ready to dive into the party crowd! The nightlife certainly is wild, but during the day, there are idyllic and quaint sides to Lloret that are worth exploring, too. You can go shopping around the old town all you want. If you’re fond of sightseeing, drop by the Parish Church of Sant Roma then continue to the Neoclassical Town Hall and Modernist Cemetery before hitting the beach – or, one of the beaches, that is, as there are nine of them in all of Lloret de Mar. Life in nearby Tossa de Mar is a little less outrageous. The medieval, walled-in Old Town dates back to the 14th century and is a lovely place with cobblestoned alleys and remnants from different periods throughout history. When sunbathing on the beach in front of downtown, you’ll have the perfect view of the medieval castle. Speaking of beaches – Platja d’Ardo is the place to go if you intend to spend your weekend sunbathing, relaxing, and snorkelling. Absolutely bring an underwater camera and diving goggles – there are colourful fishes and corals everywhere! Evenings are for romantic walks by the seafront promenade and catching an open-air movie on the beach. What better ending to a weekend in the sun?
