The best beach bars in El Maresme

Summer is just around the corner!

The most joyous and expected season is approaching. An ideal time of year to enjoy the sea, the good summer weather, its long and warm days, its magical and unforgettable nights… El Maresme has everything you need to spend the best summer. Among many other things, in this post we want to highlight the important role of beach bars because what would summer be without them?

It is said that the first beach bar in Spain opened in Sitges in 1913. More than a century later, the phenomenon of beach bars in our country has spread to the point of becoming a true hallmark of summer, both for the national public as well as for the hordes of foreign tourists who come year after year to enjoy the idyllic Mediterranean. And it is that the beach bars offer everything from delicious seafood appetizers to the most elaborate dishes, tasty paellas & fideuás, the freshest fish, drinks, live music… and all of this in an unbeatable setting.

At BestMaresme we want to provide a selection of beach bars in the region so that you can spend the best possible summer:
