This excursion is best taken in warm weather so you don’t miss out on one of the great attractions of the Baix Llobregat: the beaches. Even though only four towns in the region lie along the coastline – Castelldefels, Gavà, Viladecans and El Prat de Llobregat – we can assure you that they provide plenty of spots to take a dip in the sea along extensive stretches of sand. What's more, many of the spots along the Baix Llobregat shoreline enjoy the distinction of being Blue Flag beaches thanks to their high environmental and quality standards.
Take a day out for yourself with sunbathing and swimming in Castelldefels today, where you'll find nearly five kilometres of beaches. But if you're more one for water sports than relaxing, both the Club Marítim Castelldefels and the Club Nàutic Castelldefels have a long list of activities, so you can spend some memorable hours splashing about in the sea.
And while you're in Castelldefels, take the opportunity to visit one of its icons: the castle. With fantastic views high on a hilltop between the Garraf Massif and the shore, an interior church was erected in the 10th century on the site of Iberian and Roman settlements, and the castle was built in the 16th century. It was purchased by the Castelldefels Ajuntament (City Hall) in 1988, and restoration and reconstruction work began which is still underway today.
Groups of ten or more can request guided tours, and they do have the occasional open day with free entry. For more information or to make a booking, contact the Oficina de Turisme in Castelldefels.
