Q: Where can we take sailing or windsurf courses in Barcelona?
A: There are several places where you can practice water sports in and around Barcelona. Many of these places are along the coastline close to Barcelona.
The official Barcelona town council offer lessons on windsurfing catamaraning, kayaking and sailing:
Metro: Poblenou (Yellow Line, L4), 12 minute walk from the metro
Other places where you can practice water sports are located on beaches outside Barcelona like Castelldefels or Sitges and these are reachable by train or bus. I have included a several places offering water sports that are not too far from the city centre but you can also do a research on your own when you arrive along the coast locations near Barcelona to find more.
Here you can take sailing courses from the age of 12 years on. For other water sports, you need to be a member and bring your own equipment.
