Garraf (Catalan pronunciation: [ɡəˈraf]) is a small seaside village located between Sitges and Castelldefels, in the Garraf comarca, Catalonia, Spain, surrounded by the area of the Garraf Natural Park.
Administratively Garraf belongs to the Sitges municipality. It was formerly a small fishing settlement, but has grown to become a holiday resort and its beach is full in the summertime. It also has a small RENFE railway station.
Garraf has a small whitewashed church dedicated to the Virgin Mary. There is a house known as Celler Güell (Guell Winery) that was built by Antoni Gaudí. Presently it houses the premises of a restaurant.
The beach of Garraf is fairly quiet compared to other beaches close to Barcelona. It is popular among local families. Though there are no beach bars (chiringuitos) you will find some nice restaurants overlooking the bay.
