RIBES ROGES BEACH, VILANOVA
It is a wide beach of more than a kilometer that is characterized by being quieter than the rest of the beaches that are near Vilanova. The best thing is that it has a clear shore and no steps which means you can take long walks by the Mediterranean.
SANT SEBASTIÀ, SITGES
Sitges is one of the most emblematic villages in Catalonia and the beach of the town center, is one of the most visited every year. It has attracted many tourists and artists from all over the world for over a century. Here a special atmosphere is combined for lovers of bohemianism and cinema. In addition, it has very good restaurants, where the arrocerías (restaurant specialized in paellas, rice dishes etc) stand out, as well as the museums and night bars.
L’HOME MORT, SITGES
It is a nudist cove that, although it has a difficult access for people, has a large number of visitors. Despite this, it has a certain charm that makes it the most desired among nudism fans making it a must-see destination for people who come from outside. It is characterized by being a quiet beach with shallow waters perfect for a spring bath. Besides, it’s well connected because you have the train track next to it.
It is a huge beach that has almost five kilometers of beach without interruption in which you can always find a spot and a lot of peace just minutes south of Barcelona. This beach is multicultural and has all the essential services and a great gastronomic offer that will surprise you.
THE GARRAF SHEDS
It is one of the favorite destinations of young people, and of our favorites, thanks to its splendid white and green barracks that were formerly used by fishermen with their authentic beachfront cottages. Here you can find the peace you need next to several terraces. In addition, it is very well connected to the trains so that you arrive without problems.
If you live in Barcelona the beach that you have to visit with no doubt is the beach of Barceloneta. A splendid place located in the heart of the city, which has an atmosphere always alive and colorful, with its beach bars with live music, its exclusive hotels and wide promenade perfect for practicing sports or walking with friends. While it is true, it is not the best beach in Catalonia, it is a mandatory step for all people who want to live the seafaring spirit of the city.
PLATJA DE SANT JOAN, MONTGAT
Located in the north of Barcelona, it has three great beaches full of charm. Here you can find the calm you need, all without losing sight of the immense towers of the Thermal Power Plant of Besòs that serve as a landscape to your visit. Here you will find beautiful and simple houses, with a family atmosphere next to lifelong fishermen’s boats. This area is characterized by charm that you can only find in areas outside the big city.
This beach is fantastic for its great spaciousness and also because it is located next to the airport. From here you can see how planes take off and land daily to your delight if you like different pictures. This beach is characterized by its lack of influx of public and because it is perfect for walking in total tranquility, either with your pet or friends.
A wide beach located at the end of the Barcelona coastline and close to our residence, is the ideal place to enjoy the sun and the sea breeze every day, without the need to go outside the city.
