Platja de Blanes is the beach between Sa Palomera and the marina. [Google Map] Nestled between the rock promentory and S’Auger, the neighborhood where most of the fishermen used to live, lies a popular stretch of beach where the sand slopes gently into the sea.
Past the small canal (used for draining rainwater) the beach is lined by a popular boulevard, beyond which one finds the center of Blanes.
During the tourist season the boulevard is home to many outdoor restaurants — of which we can recommend Marathon in particular.
For coffee, pastries and traditional Catalan sandwiches, try Casa Oliveras.
Platja de Blanes is 625 meters long and 30 meters wide. This beach is popular with locals and tourists alike. The further north you go on this beach, the fewer tourists you find.
Toilets, first aid facilities and handicapped access are located close to the marina.
The tour boats also have a stop close to the marina.
