The beach of Garraf is situated about 20km south of Barcelona. Garraf is a charming old fishing village nestled upon a hill between the beach and the Parque Natural de Garraf.
On the southern side of the hill you can find the Garraf sports harbour with all services for yachts and sailing crews.
Playa del Garraf is a fairly quiet beach. It offers some nice restaurants overlooking the bay but no party-type Chiringuitos (beach bars) with loud music.
The beach stretches for 350 metres and is around 25 metres wide with fine golden sands. Since the water next to the shore a fairly shallow this is an ideal place for a daytrip with kids and family from Barcelona.
On the northern end of the bay a rocky mountain range seperates Playa del Garraf from the beaches of Castelldefels a few kilometres away.
