Riot in Spanish Resort

The popular Costa Brava resort of Lloret de Mar was the scene of a tourist riot and police action on Monday morning when club goers refused to call it a night.  Nearly 400 tourists were the problem, and in the mix a police car was set on fire.  The Catalan police force blocked streets off and attempted to disperse the crowd lingering on the resort's main streets where the nightclubs are concentrated, but things turned ugly and the police fired rubber bullets into the crowd before it was all over.

Lloret de Mar is but one resort in the area, and there are several others along Spain's Mediterranean coast which have been completely free of violent incidences.  We offer very low rates on car rentals from Gibraltar Airport to begin a tour of the Mediterranean Coast and visit other popular Spanish resorts such as Estepona and Tarifa

Popular for cross border travel by car rental from France, Lloret de Mar will have extra police brought into the resort for the remainder of the peak tourist season to ensure security.  Other resorts in the Catalonia area make for a perfect destinations for your cross border travel plans.  Consider the lovely town of Stiges by cheap car rental.
