Blanes, Costa Brava, Spain
There's plenty on offer within the resort as well as some 4km of beaches ranging from long stretches of sand to small secluded coves.
Blanes boasts over 4km of coastline with many beaches and inlets for visitors to enjoy. Most beaches are to Blue Flag standard and offer clean sand and calm waters suitable for swimming, however many become very deep a few feet from the shoreline so may not be suitable for those with young children. A family friendly beach can be found at the new extension to Platja Blanes - here the beach slopes more gently into the water. Lifeguards are on duty at the main beaches during the summer months. Showers, toilets and refreshments are also widely available on the main beaches.
