Tossa De Mar or Blane or Sitges

We're travelling with our 20 month old daughter to the Barcelona area in mid August. We plan to spend a few days in Barcelona but would then like to go to a nice beach resort nearby.

Based on my research, I;ve narrowed it down to Tossa De Mar, Sitges or Blane. Based on the pics I saw online both TDM and Blane look very interesting but I would like to hear feedback from others.

Basically, we;re looking for a place that will be extremely easy to get to from Barcelona, child-friendly to visit and safe, sandy and beautiful beaches. We'd also like to experience some of the local culture.

Any recommendations on which place would be most suitable? I am also open to other suggestions as I may have missed other suitable beach areas/

Thanks in advance.

Would love to recommend Tossa , it is child friendly,safe and has the culture of the Castle ,the museum and the many artists galleries.

The Catalan culture is very evident and you can eat well,and at sensible prices in great locations.

The three beaches are lovely but have various grades of course sand - not fine at all - and it does put some people off and can get very hot on the feet in high summer.Shops do a roaring trade in rubber slip-ons so you can run to the sea without burning the soles of your feet!
