Beaches near Barcelona or Mallorca

My wife and I are travelling to Spain in early June for two weeks and would like to spend 5-7 days at the beach. Where are there better beaches Mallorca or along the coast near Barcelona?

Mallorca has some nice beaches, but you may find the area north of Barcelona well worth a visit, especially in early June before it becomes crowded. The area south of Barcelona, between Sitges and Tarragona, is also very nice.

The long Barceloneta city beach in Barcelona itself is also well worth a visit. Very laid-back atmosphere, all kinds of people and all kinds of sports, leisure, eating and drinking, and just inland from the bustling beach promenade you'll find the local atmosphere and vibrant Barceloneta neighbourhood: http://www.theguardian.com/travel/20...taurants-spain
