Conveniently located in the outskirts of the magnificent city of Barcelona and bathed by glistening Mediterranean waters, the town of Badalona is the perfect base of operations to enjoy a wonderful city break combined with a beach holiday. Home to a stunning coastline, striking mountain ranges further inland and lively fiestas that can be easily accessed from the convenience of an urban setting, Badalona is the perfect location if you want all the glamour of Barcelona in a more peaceful environment. The city and surrounding areas offer plenty of activities that will delight the whole family, from quiet hiking trails along the Serralada de Marina ideal for picnics and bird watching to luscious golf courses and some of the nicest eastern Spanish beaches you will ever encounter. Home to amiable local people, busy food markets that sell delicious local produce and fresh vegetables and long promenades where you can indulge in some people-watching from a traditional café while the children play undisturbed, Badalona is an excellent holiday destination.

Where to stay in Badalona
Can you imagine being able to enjoy a large apartment with a private terrace overlooking the sea or a charming casa with its own swimming pool in the countryside for the price of a plain hotel room? Badalona’s large choice of accommodation is perfect to ensure that your family holiday becomes an unforgettable experience. Renting holiday accommodation with HouseTrip will give you the opportunity to have a chat with your neighbours who will tell where you can find the most exceptional walking trails or which local town hosts the most authentic fiesta as you share a chilled bottle of white wine with them after a busy day at the beach or exploring Barcelona.
Badalona with the family
There is so much to keep children interested in Badalona that you can be sure to expect a busy day ahead of you. The town has a beautiful city centre that includes a fabulously long boulevard lined with cafes, lush gardens and sunny plazas which is ideal to let the children play undisturbed. If you fancy a taste of local history you can visit the Roman ruins and baths before making your way to one of the many food markets (we recommend Mercat La Salut for its food stalls) to stock up your pantry with scrumptious local produce and make the most of the luxury of having your own kitchen at your disposal.
