Certified as a family and sports tourism destination, this town of nearly 40,000 habitants marks the beginning of the Costa Brava. The visitor who comes to Blanes has the only problem of choice: to enjoy its 4 km. of golden sandy blue flag beaches and crystal waters, to appreciate the cultural heritage of the region and the nearby cities of Barcelona and Girona or to transit its natural landscapes through an extensive network of hiking trails, cycling and mountain biking.
Under mount Sant Joan, Blanes highest point, the visitor will find three spaces that reflect the essence of this city: the old town with a partially conserved historic heritage, the dynamic fishing port and the botanical garden “Mar y Murtra”, presuming to be one of Europe’s most beautiful.
Further north rock cliffs, forest and quiet coves dominate the landscape in a delightful walk adorned with two other gardens: Pinya de Rosa (still in Blanes) and Santa Clotilde (already in Lloret).
