Between Cadaques and Barcelona

So doing the final touches on our trip.

We are staying in Roses and then have a 10:00 flight from the Barcelona airport.

That looks to be about a 3 hour drive a bit far for making a 10:00 flight I would think.

Wife did not like by the airport as it seems there is a lot of petty crime in that area ( purse snatch - pick pockets ) looking at Mataro but being Saturday night it looks to be limited.

any suggestions.

Regards

It is a 2 hour drive to BCN airport from Roses, another option could be to drop your car at Girona railway station and take the AVE high-speed train, 38 mins to Barcelona Sants, then R2 line 17 minutes to the airport. Just a thought, if you are worried about traffic.

Sitges? A pleasant, albeit busy resort, 30km/ half an hour from the Airport, and on the west of it, so no need to circle round Barceloan again on the beltway?

For an early flight, if you have a car it would be best to be the airport side of the city to avoid the morning commuter traffic on the Rondes (or in the city itself and take a train to the airport). Castelldefels would be a closer beach option than Sitges, though not so quaint.
