Data sheet

We will do a route through the most symbolic retreats in Blanes.

We will start the route in Sa Palomera, where we can climb to the top of the rock that marks the entrance to Costa Brava and from there you will have an incredible views of all the town and especially of the promenade, S'Abanell beach, Platja de Blanes and in the distance, the port.

We will continue through the promenade, where we will see the beach and the sea on the right hand and all the restaurants on the left hand. At the end of the promenade we will see Sant Joan's mountain and castle, to which we will go later, and the fishing and sports port, to which we are going at this moment. In the port we will find some bars and restaurants like the famous Can Flores where we can eat and drink something under the sun and enjoy all the moored boats while we are having a walk until Santa Anna beach, located behind the port.

We will go back where we came until we turn right in Calle Ancha. We go up through the street and going past España Square, the Gothic Fountain and Blanes theatre until we turn right through Calle Raval. We will go up, leaving the church on the right hand and at the end of the street we turn left through Calle dels Filadors and then to the right looking for Santa Barbara street. We go up through this street until we can turn right in the fourth street (Josep Mauri i Serra street). We climb through this street until the first street where we can turn left which is the street that take us to Sant Joan.

When we arrive at Sant Joan's Castle, we will have an ideal panoramic view of all Blanes town that we can enjoy looking all the town centre. It is the ideal place to take the perfect photo between the arch that forms the castle and that you can see the beach, the promenade, a part of the town and Sa Palomera.

We left the castle towards Cala Sant Francesc but on the way we will meet with Marimurtra Botanical Garden, where it is interesting make a stop and do the visit this place where we can enjoy lots of plants speciments of all the world and a viewpoint that has fascinating views of Sa Forcanera.

And now, finally after this stop in the Botanical Garden we will go to Cala Sant Francesc, where just arrived we can enjoy the excellent gastronomy in Cala Bona restaurant that we find in the beach to later enjoy a nice afternoon on  the sand and in Mediterranean Sea waters.
