Only in Barcelona can you walk to the beach in 20 minutes after exploring the rich culture of the popular city centre; the beach and the city go hand in hand. Dip your toes in the crystal blue sea; truly relax after a day of sightseeing at Barcelona’s closest beach, Barceloneta.The nearby port boasts an array of unique bars and seafood restaurants overlooking the ocean, offering a brilliant beach front view to diners.
This beach has enormous ties with the fishing quarter it shares its name with. This neighbourhood by the sea is the go-to place for anyone who loves to sample scrumptious seafood dishes.
If you’d rather just head to the beach so you can work on your tan, Barceloneta’s beach is clean and large enough to avoid overcrowding. Just find a spot you like, put on some suncream and soak up some rays – an essential part of Barcelona holidays.
