Pineda de Mar

Pineda de Mar, picturesque and calm resort on the Costa Maresme

Pineda de Mar is a picturesque resort town alongside a long, golden shingled beach on the Costa Maresme. Pineda de Mar is situated in the Spanish province of Barcelona in the region of Catalonia, between the two resorts of Calella and Santa Susanna on the Costa Maresme. Pineda de Mar, which was originally a fishing village, has roughly 26,000 inhabitants. Thanks to its beautiful beach,tourism has become a prosperous source of income. Whilst some believe that Pineda de Mar is on the Costa Brava, this resort is actually part of the Costa Maresme. In fact, ‘Costa Brava’ means ‘wild coast’, and it changes into the Costa Maresme from Blanes, where the coastline is no longer rocky.

The lively pedestrian area with its narrow streets is centred around Melias Square with its comfortable terraces, numerous restaurants, tapas bars and a variety of shops. This attractive square with its pots of flowers, fountains, and gardens is an inviting place to stroll around, shop or sit on a terrace at the end of the day. During the summer, each Sunday evening, you can enjoy watching the Sardana, a Catalonian folk dance which, although banned during Franco’s regime, has now been brought back to life and is often seen on the streets. In the centre there are many historic buildings dating from the 17th to the 19th century. Four of the arches from an ancient Roman aqueduct are still standing. On the south coast of Pineda de Mar, the River Pinedase flows into the Mediterranean Sea.

Pineda de Mar, attractive for a peaceful holiday

Pineda de Mar is not a centre of mass tourism, but in high season it can be pleasantly active. Many of the Spanish from Barcelona have holiday homes in Pineda de Mar and come to enjoy the large beaches and the sun in relative peace. The proximity of Barcelona and the good rail links are certainly an advantage for this weekend tourism. For the young, there is little to do at Pineda de Mar as there is a lack of discotheques and nightlife in comparison to Calella or Blanes, for example. It is therefore much quieter, certainly at night.
