Most of these beaches are easy to get to and provide beachgoers with services including showers, bars and free parking. Some of these beaches have been awarded quality status such as the “Q” mark of the Spanish Institution for Quality Tourism (ICTE) and the blue flag of the Foundation for Environmental Education in Europe.

Maresme is one of the richest regions in Catalonia as far as agricultural production is concerned, as attested to by the 50-odd food festivals organised in the district over the year. Some of the products have gained wide recognition for their quality, such as “floreta” and “garrofal” peas from Sant Andreu de Llavaneres, Caldes d’Estrac y Mataró; strawberries from La Vallalta, “del ganxet” beans from Malgrat de Mar and “d’en Roca” cherries from Arenys de Munt.
