It's easy to see why the Costa Brava's biggest resort keeps pulling in the punters. Holidays to Lloret de Mar pack in Blue Flag beaches, stacks of sports, and a full-on nightlife scene.

Costa Brava's biggest pull

Lloret de Mar has been one of Catalonia's prime beach destination for going on five decades now. Every year, thousands of visitors flock to this seven-kilometre stretch of coastline. And with its Blue Flag beaches, pumping nightlife and traditional old town, it doesn’t take a genius to work out why.

Loads of beaches

Lloret de Mar has 5 beaches to its name, all of which have earned their Blue Flag stripes. Lloret Beach leads the pack with 1.5 kilometres of sand, bars and clubs standing to attention just behind it, and watersports ranging from jet-skiing to kayaking. At the other extreme, the fisherman’s cove of Sa Caleta has little more than a cluster of boats around the shoreline.

High-octane clubs

The Costa Brava’s nightlife capital doesn’t do anything by halves. Thousands descend on Lloret de Mar’s clubs come sundown. St Trop has everything from house to electronica on its playlist. And Bumpers pulls in the crowds with its glass dancefloor and Caribbean vibe.

Top-notch diving

Lloret de Mar pulls in the mask ‘n’ fins crowd with its glass-clear water. Take to the waters here and, chances are, you’ll see barracudas, sunfish and greater amberjacks. New to the water? Try the Fito zone. Earned your professional stripes? Brave the Mulera zone.
