BARCELONA: SANT POL DE MAR






Sant Pol de Mar is a beautiful town in Catalonia located, on the coast of Barcelona, 50km from Barcelona and 25 km from Blanes, where Costa Brava begins.



It is easily reached by car or train. In fact we went by train because the station is in the town center, next to Les Barques Beach.


Apart from its beaches, I liked walking through its narrow streets and between its small white buildings.


In summer, I think that Sant Pol de Mar it is a fantastic vacation spot, and in spring and autumn, is a great town for spending a nice sunny day walking along its beaches.
