Daverian’s Travels

We took a short vacation in Catalonia, Spain in early June of 2012 to celebrate Adrian’s birthday. We chose Spain because we really wanted a beach vacation after a long, cold winter in Berlin. We decided to go to Barcelona because we had never been there before, had always wanted to visit the city and it was on the beach. We ended up spending 3/4 of the trip in the beach town of Castelldefels and the the last portion in the city itself. Here are some of the details of the trip (all prices from 2012).


One huge factor for why we chose Spain over some other destinations is that the flight was really affordable. We were able to find round trip tickets on Kayak from the Spanish low cost carrier Vueling for 150€ each. Not the cheapest flight imaginable, but for traveling from somewhere cold to somewhere warm and right by the beach, a pretty good deal. Vueling was a pretty typical no frills low cost airline, comparable to EasyJet. This means of course that the flight is not something you are going to enjoy, but rather something you must tolerate.

The first stop on our trip was the beach town of Castelldefels, just to the south of Barcelona. We found out about it simply by doing a little bit of research and looking at hotel prices around the city of Barcelona. The good things about Castelldefels are that it has large, beautiful beaches, really nice weather and affordable, quality hotels. The trade off is that it is not close enough to Barcelona to take advantage of all that city has to offer. We would recommend Castelldefels if you are looking for a quiet place to relax and spend some time in the sun, but not as a base of operations for exploring Barcelona. Castelldefels is about 20 minutes from the Barcelona airport. We took a taxi there which cost us approximately 12€.

We stayed in a hotel in Castelldefels called the Ciudad de Castelldefels. We were able to book the hotel for 3 nights for 236€. We were quite happy with the hotel for its proximity to the beach and its nice pool area. In general, Dave prefers to swim in the ocean, while Adrian likes pools so a perfect beach vacation day for us is to relax on the beach all morning, and then hit the pool in the afternoon. We did a lot of that in our time in Casta :).

The beaches in Catalonia were quite similar to those in California, except without the massive surfing waves. This means that they are very big with nice comfortable sand and with a lot of activities going on. While we were in Casta., there was a rugby tournament going on which was kind of fun to watch. Additionally, this area of Spain is a very popular spot for Kite Surfing… also pretty fun to watch. There are also lots of bars and restaurants right on the beach and places to rent beach chairs and umbrellas. One of the highlights of our entire trip was renting a couple of beach chairs and splurging on some mojitos (it was Adrian’s birthday after all!). One other note about the beach: Spanish women usually are topless at the beach and are not at all bashful about it. Expect to see a lot of bare breasted women of all different shapes and sizes.

For food in Casta almost all the restaurants serve Tapas in some form or another… in fact the menus for most of the restaurants are exactly the same, with the only difference being price/quality. Most of the places that have an ocean view or that are right on the beach tend to be a little over-priced, especially for cocktails, but it can be worth it to enjoy the sunset. We stuck mostly to the budget spots, drank some beer and enjoyed some cheap Tapas (hamburgesas and tortillas). We did go out to dinner one night at Can Moyas on the recommendation of the hotel and a little bit of online research. Dinner was delicious. We split some amazing Paella and several Tapas plates, most featuring fresh seafood. The bill wasn’t cheap (~60€), but pretty comparable to nicer places in Berlin and definitely worth it as we had a great night!

One note on dining out: Spaniards are famous throughout Europe for eating very late in the evening and staying up even later, so unless you don’t mind being the only people in the restaurant, book a table after 10pm. We ate a 9:30pm and had the place to ourselves, but that kind of thing doesn’t really bother us.
