Perched on a dramatic cliffside, Blanes’ Jardí Botànic Marimurtra is a tropical oasis, brimming with exotic plants and colourful flowers. Wander this pretty plot and you can admire the twinkling Mediterranean too. Just follow the tree-lined staircase down to the teeny waterfront temple.
Leave the pool behind and experience Blanes’ beautiful beaches. Just beyond the resort, Cala de Sant Francesc is a striking sickle-shaped cove, lapped by turquoise waters and carpeted in buttery sand. For a central beach spot, hit Platja de Blanes, which is backed by a palm-studded promenade.
