Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara movie filming locations Spain

Shooting locations of movie Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara in Spain on Costa Brava beaches near Blanes in Barcelona

'Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara' is a smash Bollywood hit movie from 2011 which was shot on location in Spain.

The English title is  'You Only Live Once.' Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara is a fun bachelor road trip by three best friends through Spain starting in Barcelona, Spain.

Filming locations start at Barcelona airport (the older Terminal 2) -  at the beautiful modernist 5 star Hotel Casa Fuster at the top of elegant shopping street Passeig de Gracia.

Then the roadtrip starts for real at the beautiful coastline beaches of the Costa Brava north of Barcelona with scenes shot near Lloret de Mar. 

Remember this is a movie so the real-life locations do not always correspond to the actual locations.

In the movie the friends drive past a road sign that says Lloret to Mar, but there are no actual movie scenes in Lloret de Mar - Lloret de Mar is not very charming so don't go there expecting to find the exact beach where the movie was filmed which is actually a small secluded beach in another location in the Costa Brava

Also on the way to Costa Brava there is a stop at a gas station and in reality this gas station is not on the way to Costa Brava at all - it is located near the Montserrat mountain which one can see in the background of these scenes.

In Valencia the friends join in the tomato festival La Tomatina ( which was recreated for the movie) and join the bull running in Pamplona and finally experience flamenco dancing in Seville. It's a modern, fun and funny road movie with a modern and catchy soundtrack to go with it.

The success of the movie Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara has spilled over into the Spanish tourism industry as many Indian visitors to Spain are eager to visit the beautiful locations in Spain where the movie was filmed.

It is estimated that this movie alone has created a boost of 32 percent of tourism from India to Spain in the years following the movie release.

It was directed by Zoya Akhtar, and stars Hrithik Roshan and Katrina Kaif among others.

From Barcelona you can book 1 day small group tours to the Costa Brava beaches near Barcelona to see the exact locations and beaches where the Costa Brava scenes of the movie Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara was filmed.
