The coastline where we arrange our international youth football tournaments, the Costa de Barcelona-Maresme, goes from Tordera in the North to Barcelona in the South by a length of 50 km. Malgrat de Mar, Santa Susanna, Pineda de Mar and especially Calella de la Costa are internationally known, lively but wellestablished places and offer in addition to long sandy beaches, reams of sidewalk cafés, restaurants and discos variegated leisure facilities.
