Playa Fenals can be easily accessed is through the GI-682 route, between Blanes and Lloret itself. The beach is just about 1.5 kms from the center village. We are talking about the second largest beach in Lloret de Mar, behind the popular Playa de Lloret, located further north and where you can go from Fenals through the coastal path. With a length of 725 mts and a width of 45 mts, this golden sand beach is adapted for disabled bathers and has all kinds of services: showers, sun beds, restaurants, kayaks rentals, litter bins, telephones, etc.

Fenals is a beach that, by its location, tends to be quite busy in summer. And it has an exceptional atmosphere. The boulevard that surrounds it contributes to this unique animation. Along the seafront there are two different environments. On the one hand, to the north, is the most urbanized part of the beach. Here you will find apartments, bars, restaurants. In this side of the beach begins a coastal path that, through a series of coves, the Punta Fenals and Punta d’En Sureda, where the Castle of Sant Joan is located (XIth century), leads to Playa de Lloret, about 30 minutes walking.

The southern part of the cove is surrounded by a beautiful natural environment and leads to the Cala d’en Serrahima and further, Cala Boadella, just below Santa Clotilde Gardens.
