Located next to the port, this beach has a less urban backdrop. With 180 metres of coarse sand, the Ponent beach is ideal for all kinds of water sports or a relaxing day on the beach, thanks to its full range of services. On top of that, it is just 50 metres from the train station.
Extraordinary summer measures 2021
Ponent beach has capacity for 120 people. If this capacity is exceeded at any time, access to the beach will be closed and bathers will be advised to go to others with space available.
A telematic system accounts for the number of people entering the beaches, which can be consulted on the website visitmataro.cat and the app “Aforo Playas” for Android and IOS.
Cleaning of sand is done daily and public toilets are open from 9 to 21 h. As regards the adapted bathing for people with mobility problems, from July 1 to September 12 from 11 to 18 hours, the Red Cross will provide a assisted bathing service on the Varador beach, arranging its use by telephone (937 410 225). In order to ensure safety, the City Council calls on the population to make proper use of the beaches. In this respect, we must bear in mind that:
- It's recommended to keep the social distance to the beaches between people who don't live together. - We need to be vigilant about the announcements that are issued by megaphone. - We must respect the indications of the authorities, the sourists and the staff who carry out the information and control tasks. - Avoid spooling, use sane and measured services.
Beach service for dogs
This year, Platja de Ponent is starting a beach service for dogs: an area of about 1,000 m² with perimeter and separated in the water by beacons, which will operate from 20 July to 30 September without restrictions.
This space for owners and their dogs will only be accessible to animals registered, vaccinated and identified with a chip, accompanied by a person over the age of 14. There will be pegging systems to tie up the animals, showers and bins, as well as periodic quality checks of both the water and the sand.
