To keep in mind …
From the 1st of June to the 31st of August
High season of bath 2019
The Castelldefels beach is located approximately 18 km south of the city of Barcelona, between two very different ecosystems: the delta of the River Llobregat, where humid areas and reed beds abound, on the one hand, and the Garraf Massif, on the other. It is 4,840 metres (15,880 feet) long and has an average width (which increases slightly every year) of 150 metres (295 feet) and an approximate surface of 500,000 m2 (5,381,955 sq ft). It is made up of the following sectors:
- La Pineda sector/neighbourhood
- “Les Lluminetes” sector/neighbourhood
- El Baixador sector/neighbourhood
The section of Castelldefels beach that is accessible via public transport affords the possibility of practising different sports, swimming in the calm waters of the Mediterranean sea, or just sunbathing peacefully.
Since 2006 Castelldefels beach has obtained several certifications and awards, currently including: UNE ISO 9001:2015 on Quality Management Systems, UNE ISO 13009:2016 on Requirements and recommendations for beach management, the Blue Flag distinction at the beaches of Lluminetes and Pineda, Adherence to the commitment BIOSPHERE (Certification of Sustainable Tourism) and the Ecoplayas flag.
In Castelldefels, the prime bathing season is from 1 June to 31 August.
