If you are coming to Barcelona during the summer, you might want to visit some of the better, cleaner, nicer, surrounding beaches. Castelldefels is one of them, it is clean and peaceful most days, and there are fewer people here so it will be easier to find some prime seaside space to relax in, work on your tan and sip on ice cold piña coladas. The beach is quite long, and you can find restaurants and clubs every few couple of meters, or yards (depending on your measuring system). There are also a few beach side hotels, if you want to stay more than a day and enjoy the sea and sand experience a bit more. If you don’t, do not panic, because you don’t have to. You can get back to Barcelona center in less than half an hour. Another great thing about this beach is the wind, it helps bring in the windsurfing and kite surfing crowd, and some days it can become quite a spectacle, seeing a huge number of kites flying around in the background, and another number of sails speeding through the water in the foreground. During the weekends, you can be sure that there will a lot of beach bars set up, with live music, people dancing, people drinking, people passed out on the sand, while the sun is setting on everyone with the same beautiful orange glow.

Hello Everyone! My name is David Picon. I am a cinematographer living in Barcelona. I love this city, it has wonderful sights, beautiful architecture and some great parties, not to mention awesome beaches. I enjoy going out, mostly to jazz and hip-hop clubs, but every once in a while I go in for the electronic venues. Other than that, I am an intense foodie, and a film buff.
