I have been going to this beach since I was very young and it has always been well kept. Now with the chiringuitos you don't even have to leave to have a drink and get a bite!!

Beautiful beach great for friends and families. The beaches are quite clean and the water shallow; allowing for great family fun in the sun.

Very nice beach close to Barcelona. Great for families as it is shallow and at the time of my visit waves were not strong at all.

This is a fantastic beach, only an hour south of Barcelona. Huge, with white sand and clear water. Very shallow and perfect for kids or just beach games.

Gorgeous beach, and it was very quiet when we went so very relaxing. There's toilet blocks, outdoor showers and bars (although it did take the guy about 15 minutes to make a Mojito) every so often which is very handy. The people coming along the...More

According to Google maps you can take a bus from the airport to the train station, with a couple of short walks, and then train to town train stop and walk a couple of blocks to the beach. Looks like 1:15 total time.
