what's the sea at la pineda like?

This may sound like daft question, but......

The beach looks beautiful but what is sea like, being put off by the dirty big cargo ship port at the end of the bay!!? Main reason for holiday is to enjoy the beach, don't want to be put off by the water. Thanks!

Thanks, had images in head of diesel floating on top of the beautiful water, lol!! It looks a lovely beach and fancy the idea of a trip into Barcelona. Never been to mainland Spain so want to pick right place. Thanks again x

I've visted la Pineda beach almost every year for the last 15 and I've never seen any problem with oil or other waste in the sea or on the beach. probably why it has a Blue Flag.

If you use this link, you can see in the first photo, how clear the waters are in La Pineda. Plenty of beach fishermen too so the sealife enjoy the blue flag experience too tripadvisor.co.uk/ShowUserReviews-g672794-d2…
