1. Playa Remolar
This very quiet beach with some nearby services (toilets and beach bars) is situated in the Llobregat Delta nature reserve. You can reach the beach by foot from the nearby car park or you can get there by an easy and comfortable bike trip with your kids all the way from Barcelona if you like. While you are enjoying the tranquility of the beach, you will be able to appreciate numerous birds that call this area their home. At the same time you can also spot the many airplanes landing or taking off from the nearby airport, which don’t disturb the peacefulness of the area, plus it might be another incentive to take your little ones.

3. Easy circular walking route in Collserola
This short and easy circular walking route in the mountains of Collserola, a well-preserved, 8,000-hectare natural area in which forest predominates and has a valuable biological diversity, is ideal for all ages and a great way to escape the city of Barcelona for a few hours. A great incentive for the kids might be to perhaps see or at least hear the sounds of the wild boar rummaging through the woods. This route can be reached by public transport from Barcelona on the FFCC in 20 minutes. Be sure to get off at the stop Baixador de Vallvidrera and you can find your way to some easy routes from there.
