Guide To Barcelona's Beaches



Description:

If you feel like spending a few consecutive days at the beach, check out Barcelona's beaches-all within walking distance or at the most a 20 minute train ride away, but very well worth it. It's nice to venture outside of the main 'Barceloneta' area where it is often over saturated with tourists and can sometimes get to be a bit dirty, especially during peak summer months.

Day 1 - Barcelona


Walk along the boardwalk about 15 minutes from the main Barceloneta beach and hit up Mar Bella. Although known to be the 'nude' beach, you don't have to get naked in order to fit in. There's plenty of fun, young chiringuitos playing music and serving cocktails all summer long!

Day 2 - Sant Adrià de Besòs


Right before Mar Bella beach is the 'new icaria' beach. Man made, yet fairly wide with lively chiringuitos that get going even more once the sun goes down.

Day 3 - Beach


A short 20 minute train ride from Arc de Triumfo, Ocata Beach is by far one of the best Barcelona beaches. Clean, lots of sandy space to chill out or play volleyball, rugby or any other sport that's being organized at the time. There's tons of beach huts to grab a bite or a few mojitos and the water is fresh with far less people than on the beaches closer to the city center.

Day 4 - Barcelona


Farther outside of the city, but worth a trek if you wake up early and don't mind coming back later, any one of the amazing beaches up the Costa Brava is worth a visit. Calella Parafrugell, Begur and many more. Accessible via train from Sants Station.
