Just out of Blanes on the hillside.You can drive,take the town train or walk up to the Gardens. There are some great views across the costa and some interesting plant life,plus the usual commercial *get your picture with a parrot* points. Similar to most tropical Gardens worldwide,but worth a visit.

Reviewed By Nick M - Preston, United Kingdom

Stunning beach and Promenade on the Med, incredibly clean, with some fantastic traditional Spanish bars and restaurants, very reasonable lounger and parasol hire on the beach, 16 euros for 2 loungers and a parasol for all day. All amenities literally right next to the beach, spend many hours here whenever we are in town.

Cala de Sant Francesc

Reviewed By MakemRon - Wallsend, United Kingdom

A hidden gem of a bay but no public transport to it. Allow at least 45 minutes to walk there but routes are hilly so maybe a taxi needed. Grea for sunbathing and swimjing in clear bl water. There is also a very good restaurant thete called Cala Bona
