The best beaches in the city of Barcelona

Barcelona is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. The vast coastline is one of its most valued aspects, since the blue mantle that gives the Mediterranean its colour is one of the privileges that the world has when talking about sea, sand and satisfaction. Since not all options offer the same activities, there are alternatives for all tastes. Next, we will present the best beaches in the city of Barcelona.

La Barceloneta

Located in the centre of the city, Barceloneta is the most visited beach. Full of tourists and residents throughout the year, in addition to being the busiest beach, it is the one that offers more options. The market is located on its coast and it is possible to taste traditional churros and intercultural food: aromas of Mexico, Argentina and Brazil can be found in every corner. Sports fans will also appreciate the sand and water to play the most unusual ball games. Those who want to listen to music, have fun and be around lots of people, then this beach is the perfect choice.

Sant Sebastià Beach
With a width of over 80 metres, this is one of the largest in the city. In addition, it is one of the oldest, which is highly visited by senior residents who have always lived in Barcelona. It has all the necessary facilities to enjoy the day in full. Located in the district of Ciutat Vella, it offers visitors a large expanse, an intense blue colour and a fun day with lots of things to do.

Mar Bella Beach
This beach was prepared for the Olympics held in the city in 1992, and was one of the causes of a great opening to international tourism, since Barcelona used this beach to reveal its mountains and sea to the world. This beach is mainly visited by the young, but there are also locals and tourists who enjoy it throughout the day and night.

Nova Icària Beach
There is always a beach for those who are looking for a trip full of tranquility and away from the hustle and bustle. For this reason, Nova Icària is a good option for families with children since they can keep an eye on the little ones all the time in peaceful surroundings. The more than 600 metres of Nova Icària Beach are one of the reasons that allow people not to fully occupy all its spaces, thus allowing freedom of movement and greater relaxation. Its fine sand allows a pleasant rest throughout the day.
