While Blanes is one of most popular beach resorts along the Costa Brava, the town also still derives a lot of income from its fishing fleet.
When you walk along the boulevard or dine at one of the outdoor restaurants at night, you see the fishing boats leave one by one — only to return the next day in the late afternoon.
As anyone who has visited the fish auction at the harbor can attest, the sea is very generous here.
Each evening you can also see some of the old fishermen launch their sloops from the beach at Sa Palomera, and return some time later with their catch for that evening’s dinner.
Pole fishing — along the beach, parts of the harbor or the peer near the yacht club — is also very popular. And then there those folks who don a wet suit and, harpoon at the ready, take to the water.
As for us? A few years ago we bought ourselves a fishing boat, and we regularly take people on board — either for a tour along the coast or for a couple of hours of fishing off the coast of Blanes.
It’s quite an experience!
