Why Lloret de Mar is great for family holidays

Situated on the beautiful Costa Brava in Spain, Lloret de Mar is a favourite for sun-seekers and it’s not difficult to see why! From families of beach lovers to couples who love relaxing with cocktails by the pool – this sunny Spanish destination certainly ticks everyone’s boxes.

Although a hit with all jet setters, families love returning here year after year for their sun-soaked escape. With its outstanding family-friendly hotels, beautiful and safe sandy beaches, and exciting activities for all ages, we’re here to tell you why Lloret de Mar is great for family holidays…

The beaches families love

If you naturally gravitate towards golden sands and crystal-blue waters when on holiday, you’ll find yourself relaxing on Lloret Beach in no time. This long stretch of sandy shore is clean, safe and spacious – making it a perfect spot for families. Play, swim and grab a bite to eat at one of the nearby restaurants, it’s got everything you need for brilliant beach days out with the family.

Another firm favourite in Lloret de Mar is Fenals Beach, located just one bay over from Lloret Beach. Playa de Fenals is one of the quieter beaches, making it the place to go for a more peaceful day by the sea. Relax and unwind underneath the Spanish sunshine with your family, or dip into the calming warm waters of the Mediterranean. If you’re seeking tranquility together as a family, you’ll find it on the stunning shore of Fenals Beach.

Jet off to Lloret de Mar in the summer months (June to September) and you can make the most of both of these beautiful beaches, as they offer a FREE kids’ club for your little ones to have fun in the sun ( located on the beach with instructors from 10:30 to 17:00 every day).

Family-fun activities

A family of swimmers? Love waterslides? Slip, slide and splash your day away at Water World in Lloret de Mar. From adrenaline-junkie mega slides to the rocky rafters to the family-friendly lagoon and kids zone – there’s something for every family.

If you’re a family who love an adventure, ‘Lloret Adventure’ offer an amazing variety of activities that suit everyone! If you’re a fan of being in the sea, there’s kayaking, watersports and diving for you. More of a daredevil? Bungee jumping might be what you’re looking for. Those who love to explore can do so on quad bikes and e-scooters, or those with younger children who prefer a more laid-back yet fun activity can try out pitch and putt, or the ‘Troll Adventura’ adventure circuit for children from 4 years old!
