Between two meetings, visit the best beaches of Catalonia

Being on a business trip in Catalonia is great. Enjoying its beaches and bragging about it on Instagram is even better.

You’ve been hard at work during these few days in Catalonia. Don’t you feel like now is the perfect time to gently tease your colleagues and post pictures of those glorious beaches? The area abounds with so many gorgeous stretches of sand that you’ll be spoilt for choice. Fortunately, we are here to guide you.

Forget skills assessment and head off to paradise

If you are in Girona, it’s the perfect opportunity to rent a car in the city of four rivers. A 27-mile drive will take you to a remote beach and this little gem is only a few steps away. Cala Futadera is definitely worth it, located 4 miles (6 km) from Tossa de Mar, you can pull off the road, admire the view from the top and walk down the 200 steps to eventually lie down on the sand. And then, let loose on Instagram.

Tuck away your balance sheets to feast on succulent tapas

It’s not because your business meetings are taking place in Barcelona that you can’t take off your tie! It would be a shame not to enjoy the popular Barceloneta beach just 2 miles (3 km) from the city centre. At Xiroi Ca La Nuri or La Guingueta de L’Escriba, you can taste appetising tapas or mouth-watering Mediterranean cuisine with the sea at your feet. Don’t forget to snap a pic before you dig in!

Leave your marathon meetings behind and journey to an exclusive beach

Drive south of Barcelona for 25 miles (41 km) to the pretty village of Sitges where locals like to escape for a weekend. Among its 17 beaches, our favourite one is Cala Ginesta. You will pass through the marina on your way, which may be a little tricky, but boy, is it worth it! The perfect pic is waiting for you: a beautiful waterfront with parasols, sun-loungers and pristine waters.

Treat your overworked mind to a sensational sunset

Hop in your rented car to Playa del Trabucador. There, you will feel like the only human being on earth when strolling along the 4-mile (6.5 km) sandbar of the quiet and warm waters of the Delta del Ebre. The beach rhymes with drop dead gorgeous sunsets, magical encounters with flamingos, and a spectacular catwalk leading into the sea.
