Depends what you are looking for, if you want a more Spanish resort then it's perfect, lots of local shops in cobbled back streets to wander round a long prom for nice walks.<br /> <br /> Large market every Monday. Plenty of local bars & places to eat. Not for anyone wanting night clubs or discos. For children the beach is great plenty of lifeguards.

Blanes is very scenic with a lovely harbour and great beach, there are plenty of lifeguards and water sports on hand. The little town in the resort was very traditional with lots of little streets filled with shops, coffee shops and bars. There are plenty of sea front restaurants and bars to sit and watch the sunset. There is also a great market on a Monday morning which sells just about everything apart from food. I would only recommend this resort to people who just want to relax and families as it is a very quiet resort and most of the town and bars close around midnight, maybe a bit later in peak season.

Stayed late September 2016. Glorious. Know Blanes so well due to an association since the 1960s when my adored Uncle took us there yearly (it has changed little). Stayed all over this resort over the years but have found no hotel better than this. It is a credit to the owners. See you next time Beverley Park.

Beautiful place but rude and extremely unhelpful locals. Spain needs to sit up and take note. Spain is not a cheap country to holiday in but as the coastal areas rely on tourism they should treat their guests better. Bus drivers, bar staff, all really unhelpful and acting as if we were some big interference, perhaps the heat gets to them? It costs nothing to smile. Are they so miserable?

We were only in Blanes for four nights so I'm sure in that short space of time we did not get to see all that Blanes has to offer. It's certainly changed since my last stay in Blanes 27 years ago. I need to go back I think for a longer stay.

Blanes is a fairly quiet town - not the place to go if all you want to do is go drinking and clubbing. The market on Mondays is brilliant and some fantastic bargains can be obtained. The beach is lovely and clean although it is a bit rough on the feet so I would recommend flip flops or something for walking on it. The bus service from Blanes is very good with it only costing 1.85 E to Lloret where it is a lot more lively. We got the train to Barcelona which took an hour but was really easy and once there were able to walk around all the sights. The tour bus was too expensive I thought at 27 Euro per person. Shops in Blanes are very reasonable and you can barter to get prices down. I would definitely recommend it if you want a nice quiet relaxing holiday.

Lovely, long, sandy beach. Huge promenade, with gardens, shops, restaurants, bars, and marina. Beautiful botanic gardens with stunning views over bays. Not typical holiday resort, more of a Spanish town, with regular markets, variety of shops, no 'English', pubs, but little squares with outdoor bars and restaurants. Sea awesome with enormous breaking waves, and steep entry.

Beaches

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.

Things to do

There's plenty to see and do in and around Blanes. The Botanical Gardens are a favourite with tourists and offer extensive range of colourful flowers. A variety of watersports are available on the beach plus boat tours and excursions.

Out and about

There is a wide choice of dining options within the resort, including several fine fish and seafood restaurants as well as restaurants offering local and international cuisine catering for all budgets and tastes. There is also a selection of bars and cafes. The resort has a fairly low key nightlife although there are a couple of nightclubs.

Nearby places of interest

Nearby there is one of Europe's biggest water parks, Waterworld which offers a great family day out with plenty of fun and splashing around. A short drive from Blanes is the town of Figueres which is home to the Salavador Dali Museum, the museum houses an extensive collection of the Spanish artists collections of sculptures and art from his early years through to his last years.
