Planning to take off to Barcelona?
Barcelona is listed as the world’s top 100 cities coming number 5 as the World’s best cities. Without a doubt, Barcelona has lovely beaches. There are about nine beaches stretch over five kilometres. They pass through several districts in Barcelona.
Barcelona is popular for its sandy beaches. Along the beaches, you will find many restaurants and cafe’s and of course nightclubs. There are numerous activities along the beach from sunbathing to water sports, beach volleyball, parties and so.
Barceloneta Beach is the longest beach in the city of Barcelona. Besides swimming, you can do a lot of other things on the beach. Windsurfing and kite surfing.
The fastest way to the Barceloneta beach is the yellow metro line. Get off at the Barceloneta stop. It is also nice to walk to the beach and have a nice view of the city centre. You will see the monument dedicated to the great explorer Christopher Columbus.
Some of the most popular beaches in Barcelona is Mar Bella, Nova Icaria and Bogatell. However, Barceloneta is probably the closest to the city. Reaching Barceloneta beach you can easily take the yellow line metro. This beach is beautifully long and wide and is full of ióf restaurants and bars.
Mar Bella Beach
Mar Bella Beach is very popular for many fun activities. I would rather say I found this beach very cosmopolitan and very popular among young people… If you are a water sports lover this beach is ideal for water sports. The beach is also a Gay-friendly beach and partly a nude beach. However, the beach offers other sports activities like a basketball hoop and table tennis. There is a volleyball court located near Back de Ronda breakwater. To get there you can take a metro line 4 and exit at Poble Nou station. From the station is only a 10-minute walk to the beach.
Nova Icaria beach is very beautiful and not too crowded. A peaceful beach and also a nice beach to hang out with your families and friends. the beach is close to Olympic Marina it has many great restaurants and bars. This beach also has varieties of sports activities.
Playa del Bogatell
Playa del Bogatell Is between the Nova Icaria and Mar Bella beaches. The beach does not offer any watersports however it has nice beachside restaurants and several cafes along the seafront I also personally like this beach as its less crowded and clean and nice to relax. To reach to Bogatell beach take a metro line 4 and exit at Poble Nou station.
The best beach time to visit is between May to September or until the first week of October.
Some of My Favourite Places to Eat
My favourite Beachfront Restaurant and bar are Xirinquito Escriba La Guingueta and El Boo. Xirinquito Escriba this is the far best restaurant at Barcelona Beach. I love their Paella and yes we tried their local pastry speciality. I love the ambience and a lovely restaurant by the sea. El Boo is one of the nice restaurants and beach clubs It is located between Mar Bella and nova Bella beaches. They have a nice outdoor terrace a perfect place to relax by the Mediterranean Sea. If you would like to relax reserve one of the seaside hammocks.
La Guinguta is a beachside Restaurant a good place to grab some lunch and their fresh cocktails. It is located on Barceloneta beach.
