DIFFICULTY: the itinerary is totally flat and 11km long from Montgat (3hours aprox). If you join us in Masnou it’s 8km to Vilassar (a bit more than 2 hours). A short part of the walk is to be walked on the beach, so bear that in mind when choosing your shoes!!

DESCRIPTION: For those who are spending their holidays in Barcelona or are not on holidays at the moment, here comes an opportunity to escape the city just for a few hours and enjoy the seaside atmosphere walking by the uncrowded beach and dinning in a “chiringuito”, or even taking a nigth bath.

We will meet in the first wagon of the train leaving from Pl. Catalunya at 18.38h (leaves from Sants Estació at 18.33h) towards Calella, and we will get off in Montgat, where to start the walk.

The trail is rather a kind of seaside promenade, and so it is used by the locals. It goes all the way between the railway and the beach along the Maresme coast. After leaving Montgat we will pass by Masnou and Premià de Mar, before arriving to Vilassar de Mar. For those who cannot make it at this time or are willing to walk a little less, they can join us in El Masnou by 20h in the walking promenade (between the railway station and the beach) by taking the train that leaves from Sants at 19.24h and from Pl. Catalunya at 19.29h.

Once in Vilassar de Mar we will search for a “chiringuito” to spend the rest of the evening. THOSE WHO WISH TO HAVE DINNER DURING THE EVENT, I RATHER ADVISE YOU TO BRING YOUR OWN FOOD, SO LONG AS MOST OF THE “CHIRINGUITOS” (BEACH BAR/RESTAURANT) MAY BE QUITE FULL. WE WILL HAVE TO IMPROVISE DEPENDING ON THEIR AVAILABILITY. Other options are laying on the beach, searching for a bar in the town or getting a train back to Barcelona on arrival to Vilassar
To come back from Vilassar to Bcn, you have trains at 22.19, 22.39, 22.59 and 23.19. The train ride from Vilassar to Bcn lasts 40'
