During the summer, beaches in Barcelona are crowded. We encourage you to explore the beaches outside Barcelona. Today we will talk about the beaches north Barcelona (Costa Maresme and Costa Brava) and south Barcelona (Costa del Garraf).
North of Barcelona, we find Montgat Nord, Caldes d’ Estrach, Sant Pol de Mar and Santa Susanna & Tossa de Mar.
