    More tourists come here but there're people offer massage €10 for 15 mins. Great way to unwind after walking all day. Have some outdoor workout area as well if you fancy a workout

    Beautiful beach (with 20 degree Celsius temperature in first week of January) made it a great place to shrug off winter layers & catch on Vitamin D. Tip: laze around w/ beer, watching sunset & people.

    Probably my preferred place in the magic city of Barcelona. Enjoy so much running or skating along the beach. If you feel so you can rent a paddle board in one of the 2 skate shops.

    The most crowded beach in Barcelona due to it’s location at the Barceloneta metro stop – it’s reachable on foot in 20-30 min from center. This naturally leads to an abundance of sellers and litter.

    Very nice beach! Can get crowded and touristy, but still a good vibe. Great beach bars!

    Very crowded during busy period. Also you will get people asking you thousand of times if you want a massage or a mojito.. But still a great place to be when you have enough of the city

    Nice beach! Water was clean. Crowded but what do you expect in a city like Barcelona. Good locker room and place to lock your stuff up

    Great beach with warm, clear water (here in July) with no current. There's a lifeguard and plenty of places to get cheap mojitos! Very crowded but if you don't mind it's great

    Great place to stop for a midday nap after long walking through the city. Topless or wearing clothes, doesn't bother anybody. Early afternoons with the sun going down have an amazing atmosphere!

    One of the best urban beaches in the world, very popular and super centric but if you aren't into hordes of tourists then click the 'read more' link for our free e-book about all Barcelona's beaches. Read more

    Probably the best beach in Barcelona. Big, lovely and clean. But if u are looking for no touristy places, it would be your last choice.

    Nice beach. Amazing to be able to see that at 20 minutes walking from Placa Catalunya. Try to avoid the week end... Too busy

    Lovely one, don't miss it! Full of vendors selling beers and beach stuff at an agreeable price, so no worries if you're not well equipped 😉

    Even tho' it was in November, still make you feel like swimmin! You should definitely come here and take a rest for a while as you listen to the sound of the waves

    Crowded in peak season, but convenient with public facilities, cafes, climbing pyramids, open spaces made for mini scooters, rollerblades & bikes. Great breathing space for families with children.

    Not as crowded as I espected it to be, nice! But don't leave your belongings unattended, there are a lot of 'vendors' who try to sell you mojito's and beer. They run away when cops are showing up.

    The beach is okay... Unfortunately there is a lot of trash in the sand and it is very full the whole day :/ But if you are in Barcelona, you have to go there ;)
  • Jordane R.

    Not sure that the water there is perfectly clean, and there are those annoying people trying to sell you mojitos, caipi and other rum based cocktail while hiding the bottles under public bins...
  • Christoffer E.

    No need to bring snacks/drinks. Every few minutes someone will walk by offering beer, water and even massages.

    Follow the cycle path to ride along the beach. Make a pause to one the "chiringuito", little bars that open on the beach only in summer and take a drink the feet in the sand. :)

    Keep an eye out for "Gemini" sailing just off the beach most days, with her classic lines and red headsail she's a unique and beautiful sight!
  • Жанна С.
    Quiet during December and January and that's the best thing about it in slow season. Perfect for a run too!

    Now this is where you go if you want to get to the water. Huge beach, really quite long and cool to either chill at, go swimming, or just for a stroll.

    Too many people there in summer, but you can buy drinks, play volleyball there and it's also close to very good bars

    I guess I didn't realize Spanish beaches are all topless... But now I feel liberated! The beach is packed on weekends but a lot more mellow on weekdays.

    Tons of noisy tourists, so it's a great spot if you're into that sort of thing! Otherwise, I'd recommend another beach!

    If you're in Barcelona grab a train and go to any other beach around like Castelldefels. Anything is better than the disgusting water in this beach and the crowds that are constantly there.

    A very nice walk besides the beach! There were many surfers which was odd since we visited late November.
