Although Barcelona has dozens of attractions to enjoy, it also has several beaches perfect for relaxing and enjoying the sun and the beach after busy days of sightseeing.
There are many beaches within half an hour from the hotel BlueBay City Barcelona San Cugat. Barceloneta beach, in the city, is the best known and allows us to perfectly combine the union of sightseeing and beach. In summer, it can be difficult to find a place so we recommend opting for the lesser known.
Next to Barceloneta are the beaches of Sant Miguel and Somorrostro. Other beaches to be found in Barcelona include Sant Sebastià, Nova Icària, Bogatell, Mar Bella, Nova Mar Bella and Llevant.
If you do not mind traveling a bit more to find a nice beach, we recommend Sitges, 40 minutes drive from San Cugat and very fashionable. The place has 17 beaches distributed within the town and beyond. Their offer is quite diverse, you can find any kind of beach you like: family, for relax, naturist …
One of the most characteristic is the beach of Garraf, where old fishermen’s huts have been renovated and offer a lovely sight.
