Request for quiet natural beaches near Barcelona

In early September I'm going to Barcelona with my boyfriend and I was wondering what the best beaches are in that region, a particularly beautiful beach that's too far away for a day trip is still worth a mention.

My ideal beach would be fairly quiet and natural, probably set apart from the town rather than in front of a city. We're indifferent to nudist beaches.

Cheers

Maybe try the nudist beaches between San Pol de Mar and Canet de Mar

I've been looking for simillar for the past week or so for my first visit to Spain. In a nutshell here's what I've found:

- The Sant Pol De Mar area as recommended by Simonetslsk is really easy to get to and you can get from Barcelona to Sant Pol in just over an hour.

- Most pics of coastal villages\towns show the beach with the town in the background. Don't let this put you off googling around for other local beaches/small coves in the area. The following website might be helpful with finding a beach in or near Sant Pol: http://www.spain.info/en_GB/resultados/resultados.html?municipio=Sant+Pol+de+Mar&c1=Beaches&c2=Beaches&text=false

- Your best bet for a guarantee of more quiet and more beautiful is north of Palamos along the Costa Brava coast. A car is a must in these areas!!

Even though my head is spinning from reading about beaches I've found the following website really helpful when looking at beaches in the Costa Brava area: http://www.dlleure.com/en/costa-brava.html (You can also type nudist in the search field and it'll come up with a list of results. When I did that I felt a little naughty... lol.)

This is a better link for the last website: http://www.dlleure.com/en/beaches/ if you click on any of the localities in the left hand pane of the website it will give a summary of beaches in the area.
