Holidays in Malgrat de Mar

Take your holidays to Malgrat de Mar, a Catalan town on the popular Costa Brava. If it’s a beach holiday you want, you’ve got it; sun, sea and sand are all on offer here, thanks to a choice of beautiful beaches. You’ll find plenty to explore in the heart of town, too; wander through the cobbled streets and soak up the atmosphere at the local market, before heading up to El Castell for magnificent views out to sea. Malgrat de Mar holidays are great for kids, too; the little ones will love messing around on the beach, but they’ll also go mad for the nearby Water World and the fun-filled PortAventura theme park. You’ll find all this and more just a short hop from Barcelona; the cosmopolitan capital of Catalonia is only an hour’s drive away.

Start the day right by relaxing on Malgrat de Mar’s beautiful beaches, before taking the kids on a trip to the waterpark. While you’re there, make sure you do a little sightseeing; there’s lots to see in the town itself, like the impressive El Castell that overlooks the town and the bustling weekly market.

Set on Costa Brava’s rugged coastline, Malgrat de Mar comes with a choice of gorgeous beaches. You can discover tiny golden bays between rocky headlands thick with greenery. Or you can make a beeline for the long, smooth, kilometre-long Centre Beach; (this spot has Blue Flag status) with beachfront cafés and shops nearby, and it’s a real family favourite. Just a little way down the coast is the lesser known Tordera Beach; it’s the ideal place to escape if you’re in search of peace and quiet.

The bustling downtown area of Malgrat de Mar is the heart of the old town, and it’s brimming with lovely architecture and old churches. Things liven up even more on a Thursday when the weekly market arrives. You’ll find loads of stalls selling locally made goods and crafts, so it’s the perfect place to go for one-off souvenirs. Don’t leave Malgrat de Mar without seeing the landmark attraction: El Castell. This 14thcentury castle is surrounded by a lush, green park offering beautiful views across the resort. The evenings here are relaxed and sociable, with plenty of traditional Catalan cuisine to enjoy.

Holidays to Malgrat de Mar are perfect for families. You’ve got sandy beaches and shallow waters, and there’s also a fantastic water park. Water World is only 25 minutes away by bus or car, and when you arrive, you’ll discover slides and rides for kids and adults alike. There’s a wave pool, a family lagoon and Jacuzzis too, plus plenty of sunbeds. When you feel like refuelling, make your way to the Poseidon Restaurant and grab some lunch.
