Everybody that ever sets foot in Catalunya completely falls in love with its mystique, magic, people, and architecture, but there’s nothing as memorable and remarkable like a trip to the beaches of Barcelona.
There’s just nothing like enjoying the Coast of Barcelona, with over 100 kilometers of white sand, crystal-clear water, boat trips, water sports and all of the little things that make it one of the most popular tourist venues in the world. So, if you’re ever in town but you’re one of those people that think all the beautiful beaches are in the Caribbean, give Catalunya a chance to prove you wrong by visiting any of those three beaches we’re about to mention:
If you want to fall in love with Catalunya, pack your bags and visit Garraf, a little town with 26 beaches across its 18 kilometers. Throughout the shore, you’ll see plenty of blue flags, which means the beaches have been cleared by the UN’s environmental committee. Sitges holds the best of both worlds, as you can find mountains right next to the Mediterranean Sea, which is one of the main reasons why people from all over the world line up to visit it on a yearly basis. Also, it’s been known as LGBT safe place for the last decade.
Either if you want to have a good time with your friends, family or significant other, Sitges can offer you a unique chance to get away of the loud and noisy cities to just sit back and relax by the Puerto de Aigaudol, the Sant Sebastia beach or the Ribera.
Vilanova i la Geltrú
Also located near the shores or Garraf, this beautiful city is right south from Sitges and \presents an ideal visiting spot for those who want to enjoy water sports, swimming by the sea, and fishing. Vilanova i la Geltrú has 6 kilometers with some of the most beautiful beaches in all of the Mediterranean, like the Ribes Roges, Faro de San Cristofol i Andarro, all of them perfectly suited for children to play in the sand and be completely out of harm. Also, you can take a look at the Museo Maritimo and Llotja, where you can learn about the history and life of fishermen.
Just 18 kilometers outside of Barcelona, tourists may find paradise in Castelldefels, which combines the beauties of the Llobregat river and the Mediterranean sea, a perfect place to spend the holidays. Either if you’re with your family or friends or just want to play some sports, the Castelldefels holds some of the most beautiful landscapes in all Spain and is considered to be one of the top sporting tourism destinations in the world.
Across its 5 kilometers of fine, white sand, you can hit the beach and surf, kite surf, skate or play beach volley and enjoy a nice bicycle ride from Playa de la Pineda to Playa de Illuminates and Playa de Apeadero. Spend just a couple of days in Castelldefels and we guarantee you’ll have a vacation you’ll never forget.
