Casteldeffels and Sitges are accessible by public transportation.

Barcelona has a wide sandy beach right in town (Barceloneta and further northwards up to the Porto Olimpico and even further northwards). The beach is not super-attractive but not bad either. For a stroll or swimming certainly okay. Be a little careful with valuables.

As said, just south of Barcelona, there are the wide, sandy beaches of Casteldeffels and Sitges which are a little more attractive.

The beautiful, cliff-bordered coves of Costa Brava are at least 1 1/2 hours north of Barcelona, beginning with Tossa de Mar and northwards.

Barceloneta is not nice but it will suffice on a hot day, better than Madrid anyway.

Barcelona is a great city and in mid OCTOBER ( when OP is going) a place that offers much more than Santander or San Sebastian.( so does Madrid)
