This is a fantastic beach, only an hour south of Barcelona. Huge, with white sand and clear water. Very shallow and perfect for kids or just beach games.

According to Google maps you can take a bus from the airport to the train station, with a couple of short walks, and then train to town train stop and walk a couple of blocks to the beach. Looks like 1:15 total time.
