      I have just booked a cheap AI holiday to Lloret and now I am worried sick . I may of done the wrong thing.

So may need places to eat and drink, with some life in them but not manic. Does anyone have any suggestions please. It's my friends first time abroad an I worried she won't like it.T.I.A xx

      Nearest rocky beach to the center of Barcelona

      Barcelona Jun 9, 2015 at 11:23 PM

      Hola to everyone,

      I will be staying in Barcelona this week-end (13 and 14 June) and I need to find a beach with rocks for a photo shooting.

      Something similar to the beach you can see using the following link:

      This beach (Cala Estreta) is two hours away and I need one much closer to Barcelona center. Probably not as beautiful, but similar.

      Are there any, or is it mission impossible ?

      Thank you for helping,

    • Advice on our 10-days trip to Barcelona

      Barcelona Jun 28, 2015 at 7:54 AM

      Hello community!

      I'm beginning with a big THANK YOU to anyone who will help us. This community is amazing and I'm sure we will receive a lot of good information.

      So, we are a young couple of students (25 yo) who is staying in Barcelona from July 20 to July 30. We will be staying just north to the Barceloneta area, very close to the Escola de Nautica (Nautical School) and the train station. We will stay there the whole duration of our stay.

      A bit about us: we are from Italy (arriving by airplane), we like beaches and the sea and we tend to spend not too much on restaurants or entry fees; if something is really really really worth it, then it is not a problem at all but otherwise we try to stick with worthy free alternatives and things to do. We love nature and central city areas alike, walking and losing ourselves in big cities in the evening while eating an ice cream or a slice of pizza... I don't know if you get what I mean. We also like natural places very much.

      Another important thing is that we are vegetarian and we do not drink alcohol but we do not have any problem with places where these things are normally done.

      So, we are currently planning our trip. We are quite active and we seek to visit many places and things to see/do, we are not looking for a completely "relaxed vacation" in the sense that we do not want to just go to the beach and stay the whole day there or stay the whole day at home; we certainly want to relax and not keep rushing and running but we also don't want to miss out beautiful places and things to do. I hope 10 days are enough to enjoy (at least some aspects) of Barcelona.

      That said, we already researched and looked up for places we are sure we'd like to see. Some of these are: Sagrada Familia, Barrio Gotico, Parc de la Ciutadela and Parc Guell, Montserrat and various city center squares and places. There are also other free-entry/without fee places we will be going to but I'll not mention them here, otherwise the list may get huge.

      So we are looking forward to suggestions, on what we shouldn't absolutely miss out, what instead should be avoided, special events or things to do during our stay (from 20th to 30th July), which restaurants/pizza are advised and which are to be avoided (we are vegetarian), what are the best beaches to visit and which should be avoided instead, maybe also how to save up on expenses (food, entry fees, getting around) and in general any suggestion on how to organize our 10 days there. Are there also some fun low-cost/free activities to do?

      I hope we will get many replies so that we can start defining things more in detail.

      Thank you so much in advance, for your time and for the advises.

    • Best way to travel from Barcelona to Lourdes

There are 10 people in our group. We also have luggage since we'll just come back from a cruise. I think a 15 seaters van is ideal. Can anyone recommend someone? Or is there any group or organization that can take us there? We are all originally from the Philippines. Thank You!

    • is my budget plan correct

      by amy88-360 Online Now May 25, 2011 at 6:21 AM

      Me, my partner and our 4 year old are travelling to blanes at the end of June, staying in Camping Solmar. It's our first family holiday abroad and i want it to be perfect so i'm beind a control freak and.planning everything.

      Budget wise is where i am confused as i can find little information on resturants in blanes so am unsure of the cost.

      I intend to have 69euros a day to spend. This is for daytime stuff like ice creams, the odd milkshake.etc (i intend on taking my own juice/water each day), a dinnertime meal at a resturant each evening (2 starters, 2 adult main courses 1 childs meal and 3 deserts if we can manage 1) and then a few hours worth of drinks at local bars that are child friendly.

      Can anyone let me know if 69 euros a day sounds enough for all this?

      And also any recomendations on good resturants in Blanes?

      Any help is greatly apreciates, thankyou. Amy

      Hi there, I'm 21 and myself and two friends have booked our flights to Barcelona, and we were wanting to stay in the lovely town of Blanes. We don't know all that much about Blanes, and i was wondering if somebody could tell me where the best places to visit in Blanes would be. Also, is there much night life there, or would we need to get transport to a night club instead? So far the impression that I'm getting from Blaanes is that it is a quiet town with a lovely beach!!? Is there much more to it that that? Please let me know, as we have yet to book acomodation, and our flight is on Thursday!!! thanks!! :)
