The Best Beach in Barcelona | Spain

Thursday, 6 July 2017

I went to Barcelona last year with my family and we had such a wonderful time. We did lots of sightseeing activities and on one of our last few days, we fancied a beach day. We went down to the main beach in the centre of Barcelona, Barceloneta beach, a few times but we found it far too busy, it was literally packed, you could barely move. So I researched a few places that we could go to for a beach day that weren't too far away from Barcelona and I found out about Castelldefels Beach which was only about a 20 minute train ride away.

We went out one morning on the train (unfortunately we got delayed a little as my mum got her purse stolen as we were getting on the train) and arrived in Castelldefels which is a small town just south of Barcelona. There was a little walk to the beach as we didn't realise that there was also a beach train station and we could have stayed on the train for one more stop but no matter, it's all good exercise. When we got there, we realised that we had made a good decision in going there. The beach was huge, really wide and long, and there weren't many people there at all, it was mainly locals which suited us really. There is a lifeguard which meant that we could swim and the water was really lovely there, very clean and you can go quite far out as the water gets deeper but then, when you are about 50m out, it gets very shallow again on a sand bank. We swam for ages, spent loads of time in the sea and did a little sunbathing too, it really was the perfect beach day. There is also a beach cafe there that serves beautiful food made out of local ingredients which is where we ate our lunch.

If you are going to Barcelona, I would really recommend going to Castelldefels for a day if you are looking for a beach day as it was a really lovely beach that wasn't anywhere near as busy as Barceloneta!
