Beach questions

Hard to believe that we will be in Barcelona three weeks from today!! We have one day allotted to visit the beaches of Barcelona. Since we can't leave belongings alone on the beach I don't think we will spend a lot of time swimming. I'm not sure where we will start our exploration of the shore but if we wander around will we find shady spots to sit and enjoy the water view? Should we bring towels to sit on the sand or will there be chairs and umbrellas to "rent"? We don't want to spend a lot of time in the direct sunlight. We also don't want to have to lug around towels and such all day.

Have you considered catching the train and visiting Sitges for the day?

There isn't much shade along the beach unless you're under a restaurant/bar canopy. I've heard that there are lockers and sun chairs that you can rent but I haven't used these myself. Have you seen the guide on beaches? barcelonaturisme.com/wwwfiles/bcnweb/portada…

When we swim, I use a small dry box/bag and put hotel keys, money and mobile phone in it. I wear it around my neck.
