Visited the beach late autumn. It was still almost 24 degrees but beach was almost empty. The shore was strange because you couldn’t hear the waves until you were really near them. Would like to visit again when it’s “more summer”.

Great beach for someone wants to have peace and wants to see as less as possible crowd. I didn’t find it suitable for snorkelling though.

Definetly a good spot where to enjoy a beach day away from tourists. Also very nice Chiringuito Bambu right next to the sea where to eat and have a drink ☺

Fun place! Make sure to stop in the shops and bring a sandwich before you go. Also, there are great restaurants on the beach too!

Walked here from Alella. Beautiful golden sands, plenty of space and clean! Bit hot underfoot without flip flops and bring your own shade - definitely needed along with the factor50!

This was the most beautiful beach during our stay. a 30 min train journey from placa catuluna, which basically takes the same amount of time as getting to one of barcelonas beaches. There are hardly any sellers, any people. the waves are cleaner and the...More
