Blanes lies about 25 miles from the airport at Gerona and is the most southerly resort on the Costa Brava. The rocky coastline and marina lead down to the main beach which is nice and sandy, and has numerous water sports on offer for you to try. All types of accommodation are available here from simple camp sites to good class hotels and apartment blocks. In the south, the modern and more recent development has a great variety of shops to cater for all of your holiday needs, and a good selection of bars and discos, as well as the entertainment provided by he hotels, this resort has something to cater for all tastes.
Like most of the popular European resorts, you'll find a huge amount of bars, pubs and restaurants here, serving every food combination you can think of. Plenty of fast food outlets give you the choice of burgers, pizzas and various fried chicken combinations with generous helpings of chips and salad if that's what you like. More traditional fare such as Sopa de Pescado (garlic stew with fish and tomatoes), Calderetas (lamb stew with almonds) and the fish specials Calamari (squid in batter deep fried) and Longostinos (giant prawns) are all worth a try. The local beers are as good as anything you'll drink back home and probably cheaper too. Wines and of course Sangria, are there to be enjoyed at every meal, and add to that the imported varieties and your drinking choice is endless.
REVIEW BY: Kelvin childs, Aberbargoed - July 2012
We have taken our holidays here for 10yrs and we find self catering in a bungalow fantastic.
The kids love it, the staff Joseph Marlese are always welcoming and we cant wait to get back there this year.
We use the pool all time +gabby+jordi always make a fuss with the kids we just love going to see these fantastic Catalan people.
Right out side the gates is Cheers a Dutch Welsh bar when we are there. The owners esta+laurens we have grown old with these great dutch people they simply do some of the best food locally.
