  • Recommended beaches outside Barcelona

    info

    If you feel like discovering the more authentic beaches of Catalonia and get away from the concentrations of tourists, we recommend that you catch a train from the Estación de Sants train station to towns close by. You have two options:

    • Beaches to the south (trains going to Vilanova or Sant Vicenç): Where we recommend the beaches of Castelldefels, Garraf and Sitjes. They are no more than 30 minutes from Barcelona.

    • Beaches to the north (trains going to Blanes, Maçanet Massanes, Calella and Mataró): We recommend the beaches of Mongat, Ocata/El Masnou, and Cabrera de Mar. Likewise, these beaches are no more than 30 minutes by train from Barcelona Sants.
