Santa Susanna Holidays

Quiet town: Sandwiched between two slightly larger resorts, Pineda de Mar and Malgrat de Mar, Santa Susanna holidays have a relaxed atmosphere and never get too busy. Itís the perfect place to unwind and soak up the Spanish sun.

Attractions in Santa Susanna
Can Rates: A 16th century sand-coloured watchtower, Can Rates was originally built as a guard against pirates attacking the coast of Santa Susanna. Itís in a rather unusual position, enclosed on both sides by a farmhouse with a rustic courtyard. Itís certainly an interesting sight well worth seeing on your holidays to Santa Susanna.
Activities in Santa Susanna
Parc de la Font del Boter: This leafy green park in Santa Susanna has a fountain which runs naturally clean fresh water. Itís also large enough to take a picnic and plot out your space to spend a whole afternoon in its green open spaces during your holidays here.
Parc díen Colomer: Just across the road from Parc de la Font del Boter, this park has more wide open spaces and grassy fields. Your children may prefer this park out of the two as it has a play area with swings and slides. Free entry to both parks makes them an extremely cheap way to keep you and your family entertained whilst on holidays to Santa Susanna.
Montnegre Natural Park: This huge nature reserve takes up most of the area just north of Costa Maresme. Part of the park actually begins directly where Santa Susanna ends. Much of it consists of forested hills and towering mountains, but itís well worth the effort of walking the steep inclines on the winding pathways to see the amazing views. Thereís also a huge variety of wildlife across the reaches of the park, including frogs, salamanders and racoons.
