Badalona

Travel Guide

Badalona offers sun and sand at the heart of the Catalan coastline, as well as a range of activities and unique architecture just a stone's throw from Barcelona.

Your holiday to Badalona lets you combine the peaceful, slow pace of the bright Catalan coastal towns with their fine sandy beaches with the attractive hustle and bustle of activity available in nearby Barcelona. Choose one of our cheap trips to Badalona and savour the city's coastline, which stretches for three miles and offers beaches such as Barca Maria, Pont d'en Botifarreta and l'Estació where you can take a cool dip, try sailing a Catalan patin sail boat or play a game of beach volleyball as you watch the sun cast a shadow of the Pont del Petroli, an old unloading wharf that is currently used as an oceanographic observatory and viewpoint.

As the sun slowly sets, wander towards the centre of the city and browse the shop windows, enjoying the contrast between emblematic buildings of the Catalan Modernist style, such as the Anís del Mono distillery, Casa Enric Mir, Casa Leprevost or Casa Pavillard, and authentic treasures of ancient Baetulo, the name of the town in the Roman age, as well as the Roman archaeological site, the gardens of Quintus Licinius, or the House of the Dolphins, a Roman domus dated 1st century BC, which is arranged around an atrium where you can sit and contemplate some very original mosaics.

Check out the selection of package holidays to Badalona to enjoy some of the sites and don't miss a trip to Sant Jeroni de la Murtra, a 15th-century Gothic monastery declared a Historical-Artistic monument.

Given its close proximity to Barcelona, Badalona has a very efficient public transport network, so you'll have no problems getting around. Badalona's climate is warm and pleasant, with an average annual temperature of around 17°C.

Take advantage of a holiday deal to Badalona and relax in the sea breeze while you enjoy a dish of paella or some tapas at one of the seafront restaurants along Paseo Marítimo.
