Blanes

Senia Tucan is very close to the old fishers village of Blanes. It serves as a gateway to one of the most prestigious coasts of the Iberian Peninsula, the "Costa Brava".

Blanes is a city characterized by its great tourist tradition, especially for families. In fact, it was the first town on the Costa Brava to receive the Family Tourism Destination Certificate, which is awarded to places with activities and establishments dedicated to family holidays.

First of all, we must emphasize a date marked on Blanes’ cultural calendar, at the end of July, when the fireworks festivals are celebrated. It is one of the most famous festivities on the Costa Brava. It is a fireworks competition in honor of the Festa Major (local holidays) of Santa Ana and San Joaquín. The fireworks are launched from the rock of Sa Palomera, which lies in the sea, in the bay of Blanes.

What to see in Blanes with the family?

  • Sa Palomera: It’s a small rocky island that is connected to the land by a narrow passage. This rock forms the boundary between S'Abanell beach and Blanes beach.
  • Marimurtra Botanical Gardens: it is without a doubt the most emblematic place of Blanes. A small corner of the Costa Brava where you can appreciate more than 4000 types of flora and an impressive view over the sea. A combination that results in a magical place.
  • Iglesia Santa María de Blanes: A Gothic construction from 1350.
  • S'Abanell Beach and seafront promenade: a long stretch of beach of more than 2 and a half kilometres of fine sand. It is located between Sa Palomera and the Tordera River. Without a doubt, it is a perfect place for a family outing while breathing in the sea breeze.
  • Punta Santa Anna: it is located at the end of the harbour and is known as a perfect spot for snorkeling.

What to do in Blanes with the family?

  • Shopping: In the center of Blanes you will find, just like in Lloret, a wide range of shops and large stores where you can go shopping with the family.
  • Gastronomy and restaurants: You cannot go to the Costa Brava without having a taste of our gastronomy. Either in Blanes or Lloret de Mar you can enjoy delicious dishes of traditional Catalan and Mediterranean cuisine.
  • Water activities: In the port of Blanes you can enjoy activities in the sea such as jet skis, kayaking, boat rental, diving, fishing, etc.
