Things to do in Malgrat de Mar
Malgrat de Mar’s origins can be traced back to 200 BC, with the beautiful architecture in the old town is a visual reminder of the area’s history. Meander through the quaint streets and you’ll be amazed by the facades of the buildings you stumble upon, such as the St Nicolau’s Church, the Town Hall and the Malgrat’s public library. On your stroll through the town you’ll find lots of little hidden away cafes and bars that offer the perfect spot to quench your thirst. Then, in order to really get under this skin of this Spanish town, make time to check out the old fish market. Once all that culture gets too much, head over to Parc Francesc Macia. Kids will love taking the mini train to the entrance, and once inside you can let them loose on the climbing frames and swings. Meanwhile, parents can enjoy a peaceful picnic under the trees, making for a relaxing day out.
The central beach in Malgrat de Mar is so impressive that it has been awarded a Blue Flag, making it a popular destination for families. The water is calm and clear, with only light currents, so don’t hold back - dive in and cool off! There’s even an inflatable island you can swim to and admire the town from. When you head back to shore you’ll find charming bars and restaurants lining the sand where you can grab a refreshing drink. Then, flop back onto the sun lounger and get stuck into that book you’ve been meaning to read for too long.
If water sports are more your thing then it’s best to head over to Malgrat de Mar’s neighbouring resort, Santa Susanna, where windsurfing, parasailing, kayaking and more adrenaline fuelled activities are on offer. From here you can also take various boat trips in order to explore the coastline even more. The beaches of Astillero and Conca are both fantastic options for a change of scenery.
