Nice beach near train station, harbour and shops
Nov 2019 • Family
A pleasant beach near to Ocata train station. Clean coarse sand. The beach does drop quite steeply in places, so be careful with small children. Shops, restaurants and the Marina were all close by. Parking available in the port.

Easy to reach by train. Good sand, huge space, clean water
Jun 2019
Single, with friends, in family with kids. Some bars, drink, soft drinks, tapas, terrasse, shower possibilities. Restaurants on the harbour premises, free walk access. Restaurants in the main street near the townhall, too. Not to many pkay possibilities for young kids. You enter in the water quickly. Enjoy the day, protect you against the sun in sommer. Take your own umbrella with you.

Perfect for us.
Aug 2019 • Couples
Ocata beach is located approximately 10 miles north of Barcelona and is easily accessed by train. The beach has far fewer people than at Barceloneta, and there are fewer interruptions from beach vendors. We traveled as a couple but met up with family, so there were 3 generations of us there. The beach is busy at times immediately by the sea, but behind that there is always plenty of space. We played football and volleyball, and generally had fun without worrying that we were being a nuisance to others. We used the beach adjacent to the train station where there are two beach bars serving food and drink at reasonable prices. There are plenty of other eateries and shops along the sea front, which is separated from the beach by the coast road and railway. Don't let this put you off as there are crossings and underpasses. We stayed in Masnou so the decision was easy for us, but when if you're staying in Barcelona the trip is well worth it.

Big, empty, dirty
Jul 2019 • Couples
According to other recommendations the beach is quite big, the sand of a good quality, a lot of small places to eat and drink around and possibilities for sport activities like football and volleyball. Unfortunately the water was quite dirty today (thursday, 18th of july). Besides leafs and wood in all sizes, which is fine in water, there were actually two dead rats and pieces of excrements floating when we went in the water once (not again after that experience). Overall there was a really bad smell at the small dried out rivers leading from the city to the sea, maybe the sewers were emptied in the night...

Great if you like this sort of thing
Apr 2019 • Couples
Like all the beaches along this coast there are miles of sand with few distinguishing points. The beach itself is quite steep but children will enjoy it. There are some bars but the main drawback is that a busy railway line and road separate the beach from the town. You can go through rather sordid tunnels to reach the beach and, of course, return to eat at the many restaurants in the town. Quaint and beautiful it is not.

Great beach
Oct 2018 • Family
Wide and soft sand beach that seems to go on forever. There are playgrounds and soccer goals setup throughout as well, making it even more fun for the family. We stayed in an apartment here and took the train into Barcelona for day trips. 30 minute train ride from Ocata station. Beach was a wonderful way to start the day with the kids as Spain was still waking up. Lots of sea glass on this beach too.

Long sandy beach
Aug 2018 • Family
The beach seems to be used as much by locals as tourists. When we were there at the end of August it was well-frequented but not busy. There were life guards on duty whenever we looked (9am into the late afternoon). Take your own sunshade and deckchair if required. There a frequent toilets, showers and beach cafes.

Lovely quiet beach with good beach bars
Aug 2018 • Family
We stayed in El Masnou in August with our kids and really loved this beach - clean clear water, beautiful sand, no rocks in the water, and great beach bars for lunch or dinner. Lively enough for a bit of atmosphere but not crowded at all.

Nice water and calm atmosphere
Aug 2018
Visited the beach in August. It is a quiet place yet still has some crowd and nice atmosphere.
The water is nice and clear and the beach has a lot of volleyball fields, and cafeterias.
