Costa Brava Hotel Blanes
The most southerly resort on the Costa Brava, Blanes not only attracts international tourists but is also frequented by large numbers of Spanish holidaymakers. Like most coastal towns Blanes has grown from a picturesque fishing village to tourist boomtown.
The resort has a two-mile (3km) long stretch of coastline offering sandy bays and rocky coves, the main beachfront lined with high-rise hotels and apartment blocks. Behind the seafront the town still retains some reminders of its past, like the medieval castle of St Joan, several churches and other ancient buildings. Pride of the town are two renowned botanical gardens, which boast thousands of plant species. Along with all the trappings of modern tourism, Blanes also prides itself in giving visitors a taste of the real Spain, offering traditional street markets, several fiestas and folk dancing fairs.
