Lloret de Mar – Spain, Europe

Lloret de Mar (Catalan pronunciation: [ʎuˈɾɛd də ˈmar]) is a Mediterranean coastal town in Catalonia and one of the most popular holiday resorts on the Costa Brava. It is 40 kilometres from Girona and 75 kilometres from Barcelona and therefore easily accessible. With a population of 39,363 (as of 1st January 2009) it is the second largest town in the Selva comarca (county) of Catalonia.
For decades Lloret de Mar has attracted summer visitors on package tours and is considered as one of the most important resorts on the Costa Brava. Lloret de Mar’s main beach (length: 1,630 m; width: 45 m; white sand) is one of the most popular Costa Brava beaches and is consistently awarded the Blue Flag for cleanliness. Lloret’s nightlife attracts an 18-30s crowd mainly from Portugal, the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Poland, Italy, the Netherlands and other, mostly European, countries.
