Less crowded then the touristy Barcelona beaches with mainly locals chilling out, much more relaxed and some very authentic local tapas restaurant on the promenade serving not only great tapas but a lot cheaper. One other upside, hardly any tourist mainly locals which I love

First visit to this beach and it is far quieter than the beaches at Barcelona. The beach clean and the beach restuarant lovely. Well worth a visit.

This is a great Blue Beach with lots of choices for the tourist and lots of water activities. Just enjoy the walk along it and you will find food, beverages and activities. Lifeguards and places to relax in your birthday suit....all up to you.

Not crowded in the middle of June, full, and foot showers provided for gratis at regular intervals. The downside is the sand is rather sharp to walk on
