Often cited as ‘the gateway to Costa Brava’, Blanes is a small but diverse town around 60km Northeast from Barcelona. Holidays to Blanes include a plethora of hidden beaches, high cliffs, and one of Europe’s most esteemed botanical gardens. Blanes holidays will also welcome you to local markets, coffee shops, and authentic Spanish cuisine, except for between 1-5pm… which is siesta time!
Singles and families alike will enjoy Blanes holidays, with watersports like scuba diving, sailing, and fishing being a way of life in this pretty port town. Plus football, squash, tennis and more for those who prefer to keep their feet on dry land. For those who simply want to rest up and recharge on their Blanes holidays, we recommend some cultural trips such as the Santa Maria Church or the Castle of St Joan, which towers over Blanes.
Despite its origin being over 2,000 years old, Blanes has kept its old-timey charm about it, and whilst there is plenty of accommodation being developed recently, these are mostly low-rise and don’t affect the rustic quality of the town’s views. Classed as a fabulous family holiday destination, this Costa resort has a busy bustle but no tacky plastic souvenir shops in sight. A Blanes holiday is remembered by the warmth of the welcome, as well as the weather.
