you can either go to calella or my fave sitges. Both about 50 minutes by train.

Sitges is a beautiful place with many beaches.

Indeed it does , but its renowned for pick pockets.

Btw you can get a direct train from gracia to sitges. Many spanish go there for picnics on the weekend.

Even before sitges you have some nice sandy beaches which are much less busy than Barcelona - Castelldelfels and Gava. Both are towns just south of Barcelona. You may need to travel from the main Sants station if no connection with Psg. de Gracia.

Barcelona's best beach is Mar bella. The beach is practically one long strip but the beaches are divided along the way. Marbella has less people and seems cleaner. Most tourists head to Barceloneta beach as it is close to the city without realising you can go for miles.

The stop on the metro would be poble nou yellow line.

You can find beach descriptions at www.kidsinbarcelona.com and other activities for children.
