We suggest a route to discover some of the most emblematic spots in Blanes.
We start at Sa Palomera, the rock formation that marks the entry point to the Costa Brava. From here, we can enjoy incredible views over the town, mainly of the Passeig de Mar, the S'Abanell beach, the Blanes beach and, further on, the port.
We continue along Passeig de Mar, with the beach on the right and the restaurants on the left. At the end of the promenade we can see the mountain and the castle of Sant Joan, to which we will go later, and the fishing port and marina to which we are heading. In the port we find several bars and restaurants where we can eat and have a drink, enjoy the sun and contemplate the moored boats. The walk leads us to the Santa Ana beach, located behind the harbour.
We go back the way we came and turn right into Carrer Ample. We go up the street passing in front of Plaça Espanya, the Gothic Fountain and the Blanes theatre until we turn right into Carrer Raval. We continue ahead, leaving the church on the right, and at the end of the street we turn left into Carrer dels Filadors. From here, we wind through the narrow streets for about a kilometre and a half, until we reach the castle of Sant Joan.
From the Castle of Sant Joan we have a sensational panoramic view over the town of Blanes. It is an ideal place to take the perfect photograph between the arch formed by the castle, which allows us to capture the whole beach, the Passeig de Mar and Sa Palomera.
We leave the castle in the direction to Sant Francesc cove. On the way, we stop at Marimurtra Botanical Garden, a fantastic space that allows us to enjoy a walk among many different plants from all over the world and a viewpoint with spectacular views of Sa Forcanera.
We finish our route at Sant Francesc cove, where we can savour excellent gastronomy at the Cala Bona restaurant, located right on the beach, and enjoy the fantastic waters of this natural area.
