(English) Ideal Beaches For Kids in Barcelona

By | 5 May, 2017 | 0 comments

Heading down to the beach with the kids is a fun and entertaining experience for everyone. Building sand castles, hunting for seashells, strolling along a golden carpet and frolicking in the water are the perfect ingredients of a great day out at the beach for any family. But some beaches are more suited to go to with children than others. Barcelona has many beaches that are adapted to the needs of the smallest members of your family for that very reason.Barcelona

The Catalan Tourism Agency awards municipalities who are sensitive to the needs of families a “Family Tourism Seal of Approval”,which guarantees the availability of food and drink,as well as entertainment for kids. Numerous beaches in Barcelona have this quality mark:

Playa de Calella

It has 3 beaches in total. The biggest is Gran Playa with a 1,403 metre stretch of sand, followed by Playa Garbí at 814 metres and Playas Les Roques at 750 metres. They have all the services and facilities needed to spend an entire day there as a family.

Playa de Castelldefels

The vast expanse of the Castelldefels beach and the quality of its sand and water are great attributes. Five kilometres of beach with all kinds of facilities. But the hallmark are its five flags – “Q” of tourist quality, SICTED, Ecoplayas, Blue Flag and ISO 9001 certification – all of which guarantee the suitability of this beach for families who visit.

Playa de Malgrat del Mar

The four beaches at Malgrat del Mar are perfect to enjoy with children, but the great advantage of Playa de l’Astillero in particular is that it has its very own kids club,where children may attend the beach library, children’s workshops and even enjoy the inflatables, all free of charge, among other activities scheduled for the summer months.

Playa de Pineda de Mar

Four beaches – Playa de Poblenou, Playa de la Riera, Playa de Pescadores and Playa de los Pins – are on offer at Pineda de Mar for a fun day at the beach.

Playas de Vilanova y la Geltrú

Although it lacks the Family Tourism seal of approval, its eight beaches have more than 6 km of sand and a very gentle incline.  The quality of services there are its greatest charm. We especially recommend Plata Adarro, awarded the “Q” of tourism quality for its facilities: a snack bar, showers, toilets, disabled access, landscaped areas and a sports area. Just like Playa de Sant Gervasi, PlayaFar de Sant Cristòfol and Playa d’Ibersolalso enjoy the recognition of Ecoplayas. Playa de Ribes Rogesadds a third distinction – the Blue Flag.

So, all you need to do now is come to Barcelona and enjoy the pleasure of spending a fun-filled day at the beach with the littlest members of your family.
