Barcelona’s Near North Coast. An Ideal Place to Buy Property.
La Maresme is the near north coast and runs from Barcelona to the city of Blanes, about one hour away. The train goes from Barcleona to several coastal towns and ends in Blanes. Pristine beaches, proximity to Barcelona, and homes with incredible views, make it a primary destination for international buyers.
The towns here are more numerous and closer together than in the South Coast. The towns on the beach are flat with mostly apartments and townhouses, while single-family homes can be found in the sparsely-populated residential areas up in the hills. The lots and houses increase in size, and privacy, as you climb up. You can live car-free in the beach towns but not up in the hills. Below is description of a few towns to give you an idea.
