Being a tourist in Lloret de Mar
If you are attending Innovation In the Sun this summer you no doubt have already read everything there is to read about the club nights and day time parties, you’ve of course watched all the videos, but what is the town of Lloret really like if you’re a tourist?
Here are our top 5 recommendations of things to do & places to eat in the resort when you are not raving…
John Thomas is highly rated on TripAdvisor and is a firm favourite with the Innovation staff & security team. Located directly opposite Colossos, John Thomas specialises in freshly cooked burgers and is a handy place to grab a decent bite on your way back from the beach
La Pampa is a traditional Argentinean steak house located down one of Lloret’s little side streets. It’s one of TripAdvisors highest rated places to eat in the town, as such it’s not easy to get a table, but if you fancy a good steak, mixed grill or traditional Spanish paella then this is worth a visit
The main shopping strip in Lloret de Mar is located a couple of streets behind Colossos. If you need anything from a new memory card for your camera, an new outfit to wear that night, or a new pair of shades, this is the place to go. The shopping strip gets quite busy of an evening but it’s worth a browse especially if you’ve promised a gift for someone back home
Orient Express situated on the sea front is always popular with Innovation ravers, no matter what time of day you walk past there are always a few friendly faces from the night before tucking into a late breakfast. The staff are always friendly and the atmosphere relaxed. Not so great for traditional Spanish dishes but they do a lovely Sunday roast and their pies are very good. See what TripAdvisor has to say about them
Finally, if you’re feeling energetic why not take a stroll along the coast? Start to the right of the main beach in Lloret, head up to the view point by the Dona Marinera (Fishermans wife) statue, then follow the coastal path round and up through the woods to Fenals Beach
