Platja de Sant Simó
Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
This beach is in the north of Mataró, between the Sant Simó riverbed and the town of Sant Andreu de Llavaneres. It's got 1,100 metres of white sand, but it's quite narrow, appearing to lose width as it crawls closer to Sant Andreu de Llavaneres. The beach is divided into a family zone – which is closer to Mataró – where the majority of services can be found: parking spaces, showers, chaise longue rentals and 'chiringuitos' (snack bars). The area farther away is meant for a more 'natural' experience, which can prove much more interesting for those who enjoy snorkelling.
Avinguda del Maresme, s/n, Mataró
|Transport:||Getting there: Take the Rodalies de Renfe train to Mataró. The beach is 1.3 km from the station, but the city bus line number 3 will take you to the Sant Simó stop, just 100 metres from the main entrance to the beach. By car, take the N-II or the C-32 motorways to Mataró.|
