Gavamar beach is a real nice place to enjoy with kids. The beach is wide and nice and the "paseo marítimo" good for a nice walking.

Just love this place. Far from Barcelona's mess, but only 15 minutes driving. Airport is 10 minutes away. Nice water, nice sand, nice food and nice people. You should consider this place next time you go to Catalonia.
