Beach and Fly?

Want to give your sun tan a final blast before handing over your hire car and catching your plane in Barcelona…..and avoid sitting for too long in a stuffy airport full of germs? Why not wait on the beach? Check out a couple of seaside towns near Barcelona El Prat Airport worth a visit.

Around 20 minute drive from the airport….


Lively and authentic Spanish seaside resort with delightful old town full of attractive buildings, shops and restaurants, bars and museums, pleasant beach and pretty marina.

Around 25 minute drive from the airport….

Vilanova i la Geltrú

Pretty marina, plenty of shops and great fish restaurants, old walls, medieval castle, museums, ancient church and clean, wide beaches.

Or just behind the airport…

El Prat de Llobregat beach

Long and sandy beach, perfect for ‘plane spotters and a crick in your neck as they land and take off just over your head every 5 minutes or so!

(Warning: the area between the airport and the beach is a little dodgy! Only choose this option if you can go there by car.)
