Montgat, the Maresme beaches closest to Barcelona

Montgat is a village in Maresme region that is further south and, therefore, closer to Barcelona. Montgat enjoys four magnificent beaches that limit to the south with those of Badalona and to the north with Masnou. At those Beaches not only come to the inhabitants of Montgat, also are the most used by the Alella residents.

The Montgat beaches, located along its wide coastline, are close to the Renfe train station and bus, with accessible parking and adapted services.

Cala Taps Beach

The Cala Taps beach is just opposite the Mallorcan neighborhood. In a corner of the beach there is a space for the practice of nudism. Access is through Mediterrània Avenue. The origin of the name comes from the numerous cork stoppers from the bottles of bleach that were made in Casa Mitjana Mensa and that people found in the water and in the sand. Previously, for that reason this beach is called “ the Bleach”.
