Summer has finally arrived in Barcelona! This time we have to wait for it longer than usual. The relaxing season on the beach is open, so I’ll share with you the best places for the beach. Let’s be honest, the beaches in Barcelona are not the most beautiful in the Catalan region, but if you don’t want to spend the whole day sunbathing, just a few hours, Barcelona is a good choice. I chose four of the eight beaches that I think are the best to enjoy the water and sand.
In the old time there was a fishing district, and through it runs a small river Bogatell. These days the river no longer exists, but the beach was named after the Bogatell River. The beach was renovated in the ’80s and is one of the most popular in the city. The beach is 702 m long.
Playa de la Mar Bella My favorite beach because of the contrast. We can “divide” this beach in three zones. First, we have a nudist beach that turns smoothly into a place where the LGBT community is relaxing, and finally a mixture of tourists, residents, families, and children.
Playa Nova Mar Bella
This beach is a favorite place for young people and women.
Nova Mar Bella is accessible for people with disabilities. You will find there wheelchair pavements connecting the sidewalks with the seashore.
Playa de Levant
It is the youngest beach, where you will find a zone for animals. If you are on holiday with your elephant, parrot or dog, this is the perfect beach for you.
On all these beaches there are toilets, showers, lifeguards, police station and bars where you can rent deckchairs and umbrellas.
