Sunset in Parc Collserola Barcelona

Barcelona is a fantastic city, but for some it might be too busy, for others they miss the nature and there are so many awesome things to do outside Barcelona. Barcelonasail lists a couple of destinations that we believe is worth a visit.

Barcelona is located at the foothills of Parc Collserola. A 80 hectare large hilly park, with the highest peak 500 meter (1500 ft). This parc is fantastic for kids and families wanting to escape the city. Only 3 kilometer from the city center this is one of the easiest and fasted things to do outside Barcelona.

Vila Vella in Tossa de Mar is a 105 Km drive from the center of Barcelona. This picturesque city is full from mid June to beginning September, however in May and late September it is a fantastic gem to see. In the off-season May September October the weather is generally good, and all the facilities are open.

BarcelonaSail says best time to go May and late September, still quit in the streets.

The old streets are calm again you are surrounded by hills and still in a quiet small town.

Surrounded by steep hills falling into the sea creating beautiful bays and beaches.

Sailing to Montgat or Masnou. Sailing to Masnou is a 2 hour sail tour, it brings you to a small town just 10 kilometer north of Barcelona. It is an activity that is very popular. After 2 hours we return and enjoy the sea again.
