You'll be in beach heaven in nearby Sitges as there are 17 beaches to choose from here! The ones closest to the town centre are the busiest, while those slightly further away will be a bit more secluded. There are family friendly beaches like the Platja de la Fragata, as well as two main nudist beaches (Platja d'Aiguadolç and Platja dels Balmains). Platja de les Anquines beach is the nearest to El Garrofer (2km), set in a cove, it is a good option if you are looking for some peace and quiet.
When you're ready for a break from the beach, take the bus or train to fabulous Barcelona - there are around three trains an hour into the city, with the journey taking between 30 and 45 minutes or the bus stops directly outside the parc. Even closer at hand is historic Tarragona, boasting Roman ruins, a lovely old town and even more beaches!
