All beaches in Spain are public. No entry fees

Both Barcelona and Tarragona (note the spelling) do have beaches. Both are OK for being city beaches, but that's all. As a general rule, as far from the town center, less crowded (but June is still not peak season so it really does not matter).

You'll find many nicer beaches in towns between these two big cities: Altafulla, El Roc de Sant Gaietà, Vilanova i la Geltrú, Sitges, Castelldefels... All these can be easily reached by train and can be done as daytrip or half/day trip from Barcelona or Tarragona

Have a nice trip!

Isa, always full of help!

Tarragona has two main beaches. I don't know your transportation, but the first is just opposite the train station, directly below the cliff that the Ramblas dead-ends on, so it is accessable by public transit and walking. The second is about 3km north of town, so you would need alternative transit.

Next from Tarragona next would be La Pineda, and then Salou's popular beaches.

Hey Willy!

I just moved to Barcelona and I recently visited Tarragona for the weekend! It´s really beautiful and it has quite a few historical things to do. The beaches are relatively quiet this time of year also.

I found an article that might intrest you about Tarragona and the beaches and other stuff to do etc: http://www.barcelona-metropolitan.com/articles/tarragons

Hope that helps.

Travel Tips for Barcelona

Barcelona Beach

by Lemonita

Barcelona is a city located on the north eastern coast of Spain and thus is by the sea. It has a beautiful beach and a promenade along the sea, allowing people to stroll or bike/roller-blade. I've always lived in big cities and I just love the fact that we could just hop on the metro and get to the beach in Barcelona !

The east vicinity of La Rambla...

by Pegasus74

The east vicinity of La Rambla is a network of narrowly old cobblestone streets where human traffic is almost always at its peak. Many of which are lined with bookstores, artisan shops, fabric stores and of course snack houses. Before you concentrate too much on shopping, I would suggest you first head towards the majestic La Seu Cathedral which is endowed with imaginative and inspiring artwork. This Gothic edifice was erected in Barri Gotic, a Gothic quarter inhabited from Roman times. It is absolutely spectacular at night and even more enchanting during Christmas eve. The cathedral cloister, which encloses a lush central garden with palm trees, ducks and magnolias, were decorated with holy sculptures depicting the exuberant moment when the child was born. Through the beautiful arches that surrounds the garden, I witnessed doves circling the tower of the cathedral, which I thought was perhaps the best highlight of my visit. The Romanesque chapel of Santa Llucia, which connects the garden, held hundreds of worshippers and curious tourists when the Christmas Mass was conducted.

Catalan

by Yosemite_44

Barcelona is located in the province of Cataluña/Catalunya and both Spanish and Catalan are spoken. People generally feel Catalan not Spanish (during Barcelona - Real Madrid in 2002 there was a giant banner in the stadium that read: Cataluña is not Spain) and a lot of things tend to be written in Catalan: menus and information signs for example. Both usually there is a Spanish version too. It is often appreciated if you say ´Adeu´ (a-DE-u) when you leave (instead of ´Adios´).

The Catalan language was more similar to me to French and Latin than to Spanish. You can often identify it by endings like -tat, -its, -oa and -ou.

Montserrat Monestary

by fishandchips

The Benedictine monastery of Montserrat is to the northwest of Barcelona in the 'saw-tooth mountains'. This is where the place got its name. The monestary is the religious centre of Catalonia and is visited by thousands of pilgrims each year. The main reason to visit? - the monestary's Black Virgin.

Las Ramblas of course...

by Tripack


The best kept secret street of Barcelona ;-)

The Rambla is, of course, the best known landmark of Barcelona, and deservedly so. Meandering down from the Plaça de Catalunya to the Columbus statue, filled with newspaper kiosks, flower and animal stalls, and all sorts of artists, it is undoubtedly the place where everyone comes together, both tourists and locals, from the most inconspicuous to the most exaggerated representative of all sorts of urban tribes.
