Visited the beach late autumn. It was still almost 24 degrees but beach was almost empty. The shore was strange because you couldn’t hear the waves until you were really near them. Would like to visit again when it’s “more summer”.

Definetly a good spot where to enjoy a beach day away from tourists. Also very nice Chiringuito Bambu right next to the sea where to eat and have a drink ☺

You can take the R metro train to Ocata station from central Barcelona, the station is right on the beach.
