On the southern end of the Costa Brava, two towns offer special charm just where the rocky cliffs meet the extensive sands. Lloret de Mar and Blanes combine quality tourism with leisure and entertainment activities, with options for a wide range of people.
Hotel Guitart Monterrey*****
This is the best option for enjoying the quality of accommodations rated very highly in the leading tourism guides. The hotel complex, as well as the hotel itself, includes a large pool surrounded by gardens, a Wellness & Spa (a new concept of wellbeing and relaxation with private rooms for treatments), FREU, the restaurant highlighted in the Michelin Gourmand Guide as among the 25 best in Spain, and the Casino Costa Brava, which hotel guests have free access to. Guests also have an exclusive Beach Club on the Fenals beach, with free transportation from the hotel, and the Club Prince, a chill-out terrace for enjoying magical nights with the best summer cocktails. www.guitarthotels.com
Gardens near the sea
Blanes is a highly prestigious tourist town due
to its beaches, the fishing port and marina, and its yearly fireworks, which, every year on the last week of July, fill the Costa Brava sky with colors. But what not everyone knows about Blanes are its gardens, two botanical gems combining greenery and majesty.
The Pinya Rosa Garden
Is a tropical garden with more than 7,000 species from around the world, making it one of the most interesting in Europe. Marimurtra Garden is located on the sea cliff and was founded over 80 years ago by the German Carl Faust. Today it is one of the gems of the Costa Brava. Walking through its more than 3,000 exotic species is like breathing in the essence of the Mediterranean mixed with the aromas of jasmine.
