15 Beaches in Catalonia for your audiovisual project
Following the almost 800 km of the Costa Brava Coastline, you find wild coves with turquoise waters, great sandy beaches, such as the Costa Daurada, or hidden beaches, only half an hour away from Barcelona.

You will find on this Catalan coastline some of the best beaches in Spain. There are postcard ones and beaches for all tastes, of stone or fine sand, with cliffs, or savage, extensive sandy areas, hidden ones, and urban or quiet corners.
Calas del Cap de Creus (Girona)

Beach of the Castell, Palamós (Girona)

Illa Roja Beach (Girona)
The cove of Illa Roja, located in an idyllic setting of rocks and pine trees, is characterized by its transparent waters.

The beach is a spectacular background for your photographic shooting or audiovisual production.
Les Casetes de Garraf (Barcelona)

It is undoubtedly worth your visit, for your photographic shooting or audiovisual project.

It is a declared area of natural interest, and surrounded by pine trees and mountains that descent to the sea.
Playa del Fangar (Tarragona)
Playa del Fangar is an extensive tongue of sand that closes the Delta del Ebre in the north. As the peninsula of the Fangar lengthens, it narrows and curves, until it encircles a large amount of salt water, forming an interior sea, known as the Puerto del Fangar. The Playa del Fangar, with its semi-desert and virgin aspect, is one of the most unique spots in the Delta del Ebre. Its sand is of a fine texture and the environment is spectacular for your audiovisual project.
