Lloret de Mar is the most popular resort on the Costa Brava. Everybody will find something for themselves. Life takes place there both at night and during the day. Lloret de Mar lives at night. There is a lot of clubs, disco bars. One of the most popular is Disco Colossos or Disco Tropics. Walking in the evening around the city you will certainly get a lot of offers encouraging you to look into the club. So it is a paradise for party people! But not only …. I was twice in Lloret de Mar. I spent it in two other ways, the first disco, and the second one is a leisurely beach or pool hotel. I can tell you that I am happy with both 🙂
People are very polite though sometimes insistent. Especially in shops 🙂 The beach in Lloret de Mar is fantastic. You must also mention the beautiful bar : Cocktails Maritu beach. The best location to drink a tropical drink like from the Caribbean. Cocktails are available alcoholic and non-alcoholic, served in fancy nudges.
