At the beach, you can meet families with children of all ages and from all over Europe. At this never overcrowded place you can enjoy all sorts of water-sports like water-skiing, windsurfing, sailing and diving (sports gear can be rented) as well as fun activities and boat trips. Snorkelling fanatics find plenty of interesting places around the rocks and by the nearby tiny islands. At the beach restaurant they offer reasonably priced meals and snacks, cool beers, ice-cream and others.

A supermarket and 4 tennis courts are close to the entrance of the community and around the corner one can join the various sports and fun activities at the camping place, visit its swimming pool or open air disco in the evenings. Just in case, there is also an English speaking resident doctor during the summer time at Cale Llevado. If there is something you can’t find in our supermarket, or if it is closed, you can also visit the well stocked one at this camping site and if you are looking for a change, there is an attractive restaurant offering reasonably priced meals.

Lloret de Mar with its wide and buzzing beach is the place for the active ones in the summer. Plenty of sports and other activities and hundreds of discothèques transform this town, (which is a famous destination for many bus tour companies) from a somehow quiet place for old-age pensioners in spring and autumn into an entertainment heaven for the young ones. If you want to visit Lloret at the weekends you must be prepared for annoying traffic hold ups.

Besides a go-kart-track and the "waterworld" with its many inventive water slides and fun basins, Lloret provides two 18-hole golf courses where golfers of all levels are welcome.
