Nice sandy beaches in Castelldefels, Spain

5 days stay in the sunny and reasonably crowded Castelldefels, Spain


Hey all. Today, I will share some of my impressions from our trip to Castelldefels, Spain last summer (or should I say by the end of the summer since we went in the late September). It was kind of a short trip with just 5 nights in this beautiful country but it was definitely worth spending some time in Catalonia region.

Here are the things we like most in Castelldefels:

  • Enormous sandy beach
  • Nice views 
  • Close to Barcelona

What we didn’t like in Castelldefels

  • Parking – parking on the street will cost you in central locations around town
  • It is kind of expensive
  • Not too much to do – entertainment options are limited


Initially we wanted to visit Barcelona and probably that is the main reason to pick Castelldefels for our stay – it is some 20 km from Barcelona, so it was easy to travel back and forth during the day with our rental car. This small town is famous for its extremely long beach (over 5 km) and also a vacation place for many famous people and some celebrities.

The hotel

Our 5-night stay was pleasant enough thanks to our kind hosts from SG Marina 54 Apartments. The hotel is comfortably located in the middle of Castelldefels and just 5 minutes walk from the nice sandy beach.  SG Marina 54 Apartments offers studios and apartments on good prices but I can’t confirm if it is the same case in the peak season. Our studio was clean and roomy enough so no complaints whatsoever.


Since Barcelona was pretty close, we didn’t miss a chance to visit it. There’s so much to say about this city that I will dedicate a series of posts where I will share detailed info and impressions after our trips in the Catalonia’s capital city. Trips from Castelldefels usually took about 30-40 minutes (sometimes longer due to the heavy traffic) by car. It was a relatively new Fiat Panda which did a good job in carrying us around without any big expenses for fuel/maintenance.
