Press Release   •   Jan 31, 2018 15:01 +08

Mask, snorkel and in the water! If there is one holiday activity that your children will love, it is a family day out at the beach. Come and enjoy a day at the beach in Catalonia. There are so many things to do… Here is a suggestion that is sure to put a smile on your child’s face.

The sea is a glassy-smooth, crystal-clear blue expanse and the temperature is mild. In you go—no gasps or goosebumps here—and stride forward fearlessly, as the beach barely slopes. Could there be better conditions for snorkelling? So, go on, dive in!!!

Explore the coast of Catalonia in a kayak and a whole lot more

After snorkelling, the next morning, you hop aboard a kayak and take a relaxed tour along the coastline. If you want to learn sail, the Estació Nàutica at Sant Carles de la Ràpita has sailing dinghy courses and many other activities both on and off the water. Obviously, you’ve also made plans for dry land, such as the bike trails, walking the coast path, tennis, horse riding, or a day out at the amusement park.

At the end of an active day, time to relax in a family hotel

Later in the afternoon, the morning’s energy levels have dissipated. Soon, it’ll be time to end this day on the beach and take a breather at the hotel. It’s really close to the beach, and you could walk there, but today you’ve decided to make it a bike ride. The hotel provides a respite from the day’s adventures. You’ve got a family room and the beds have safety rails. The entire establishment is designed to make you feel at home when you stay with your children. The restaurant has a kid’s menu and the hotel’s children’s entertainers are always ready with some activity to keep them busy.

With so many ways to enjoy a family day out at the beach in Catalonia, whatever you choose to do we are sure it will begin and end in the same way, with a big smile on your child’s face.

The Catalan Tourist Board (CTB) was set up by the Government of Catalonia and is responsible for implementing the government’s tourism promotion policies. It replaced the Turisme de Catalunya consortium, formerly responsible for this work, in early 2010.
