Popular with locals and tourists alike, Blanes is known as the Gateway to the Costa Brava — the ‘wild coast.’
It is located in Catalonia, Spain, not far from the airports of Barcelona and Girona.
La Palomera, the rocky promontory jutting into the sea from the center of town, is considered to be the official point at which the smooth coastlines of the south change into an exciting mix of secluded beaches and ‘private’ coves, interspersed with rugged cliffs.
The Wild Coast stretches from here all the way to France.
Blanes itself is blessed with a number of wonderful beaches.
In addition, the town is known for its fine restaurants. Fresh fish is in ample supply, as the working fishing harbor includes the only fish auction — which is open to visitors — in the area.
The old town of Blanes is home to a surprisingly modern shopping center — spread out over a sprawling district of small streets and squares. The many shops are appropriately interspersed with eateries, outdoor cafés and tapas bars.
Hotel Stella Maris is located close to the center of town, in the El Pins (‘pine trees’) district.
Everything you need for a fantastic vacation is within easy reach. Relax at the beach or at our pool. Pick a different restaurant every night of your stay. Dance the night away in any of the many discos.
