Beaches, Urban
A beach to the east of the port of El Masnou. It is easily reached and has all kinds of services and sports facilities. It is flanked by a wide front for pedestrians and cyclists.

The Ocata beach is located to the east of the port of El Masnou. It is more than one and a half kilometres long and a variable width, ranging from 170 metres, next to the marina, to fifty metres, in the area closest to Premià de Mar.

Next to the marina we find the Masnou Nautical Club. From this point and until the coloured hangar that houses the Ocata Vent sailing club; the beach is wide and has fine sand. It offers all types of services: showers, restaurants, leisure areas for beach sports, beach bars, as well as surveillance and Red Cross services. During the summer, the different bars and the El Masnou Town Hall offer cultural and leisure activity evenings.

On the stretch of beach near Premià de Mar an area for angling of about 200 metres has been set up and can be enjoyed 24 hours a day. Following this stretch and towards the south there is another area of the same length in which nudity is permitted.

It can be reached by car through a tunnel from the village of El Masnou; for parking, we can use the large area of the marina, paying, or a small strip between the marina and the railway, also paying (blue zone). A pie hay varios pasos subterráneos y elevados que atraviesan la N-II y la vía férrea. Another way to access the beach is to use the suburban Renfe train service; the Ocata train station is a few steps from the beach.
