Blanes Travel Guide

The most southerly holiday resort on the Costa Brava, Blanes not only attracts international tourists but is also frequented by large numbers of Spanish holidaymakers. Like many Spanish coastal resorts Blanes has grown from a picturesque fishing village into a tourist boomtown. The resort has a two-mile (3km) long stretch of coastline offering sandy bays and rocky coves. The main beachfront is lined with high-rise hotels and apartment blocks, but the historic centre of the town remains charmingly well-preserved, making Blanes a refreshing combination of commercial development and authentic Spanish culture. The alleyways of the old town reveal numerous shops, restaurants and cafes, and reminders of its past include the medieval castle of St Joan, several churches and some other ancient buildings, which attract hundreds of holidaymakers each year. The pride of the town are the two renowned botanical gardens, which boast thousands of plant species. Blanes also offers traditional street markets, several fiestas and folk dancing fairs. It is a testament to its abiding charm that it attracts locals as well as foreign visitors.
