El Prat beach is a treasure that is within reach of your visit to Mucha Masía. You can get there very easily by bicycle thanks to a bike path that passes in front of our hostel. It crosses the urban nucleus, it runs through the rural environment of cultivated fields and after skirting the airport, you will arrive at the beach of Prat de Llobregat (Barcelona).
