Every summer, tourists from all over Europe flock to the Costa Brava’s major party destination, Lloret de Mar. Just 70 kilometres from Barcelona, this coastal town caters very well to the younger set, with opportunities for lazy beach days, water activities, adventure tours and a thriving nightlife.
Nightly entertainment in Lloret is a huge attraction and presents a wide choice of bars, restaurants, night clubs, discos and karaoke bars to visit. Some establishments are open all day, others open their doors in the afternoon and many start their business around midnight and keep going until morning. Lloret is a resort town that never really sleeps!
After the sun goes down, the streets of Lloret de Mar fill up with fun-loving tourists on their way to the popular spots for a night out on the town. The nightlife in Lloret de Mar is concentrated around the area on Avenida Just Marlés, as well as the neighbouring streets along the southern end of Lloret’s promenade. There are also a scattering of bars along the northern end as well.
Many clubs charge a cover fee that can range anywhere from 12€ to 15€ and include a free drink or two in the price. The overall vibe of Lloret at night is casual and nothing too fancy, as partygoers typically hop from bar to bar, dance, karaoke and are really just out to have a good time.
For vacationers staying exclusively in Lloret de Mar, an evening out in Barcelona is another option. Booking a private shuttle service with Shuttle Direct will get you and your group from Lloret de Mar to Barcelona in just over an hour, and then back again safely at the end of the night. Your designated driver will be arranged!
For those preferring to be out on the water in the evening, boarding a catamaran for a three-hour coastal tour of Lloret and Tossa de Mar on a “booze cruise” is a fun way to take in the sights from a different viewpoint and meet others out for a night of enjoyment, as several groups often share one boat. For about 50€ per person, patrons can enjoy dinner, unlimited beer and sangria and dance to their hearts’ content to a DJ spinning tunes.
Tourists may instead opt to try their luck at the Gran Casino Costa Brava, a large venue featuring slots, table games such as blackjack and roulette, and poker tournaments. The casino is located at the north end of town, on the Avenida Vila de Tossa.
Getting to Lloret
Travellers have a choice of direct flights from London and can arrive into Barcelona in about two hours. The best option for getting from the airport to Lloret de Mar is booking a private shuttle transfer service straight to the hotel. Booking the same shuttle service ahead of time for the return from Lloret de Mar to Barcelona is easy and saves on having to make last-minute arrangements.
