The truth is that this area is not only a beach, but contains many restaurants such as “Agua” restaurant and “Pez Vela” by Grupo Tragaluz, shops and walking areas to enjoy the good weather, which perhaps makes it the busiest beach of them all. There are many water sports you can do on this beach, renting equipment in different locations around there, besides being able to enjoy the beachfront bars and art chasing Barcelona to the sea.
- Somorrostro Beach
Located between Hospital del Mar and Calle de la Marina, Somorrostro beach comprises a stretch of coast that formerly belonged to the Barceloneta. The beach was renamed to honor the slum neighborhood of Somorrostro, which after one hundred years of life was torn down upon Franco’s visit to Barcelona in 1966, and where even a small tribute to the history of this area and the city is maintained.
- Playa Sant Sebastià
Next to the beach of Sant Miguel, the beach of San Sebastià is one of the largest and oldest in Barcelona, and there are located some of the most important sports clubs in the city. It is also the favorite of the elderly, together with Bogatell Beach, which makes it a quieter beach to visit with family and enjoy the fine cuisine of “Bestial” restaurant.
- Playa Mar Bella
The liveliest and most liberal beach of Barcelona is between the breakwater of the Mar Bella and the Bac de Roda one. Separated by a small mountain, there is a reserved area for lovers of naturism. Besides, the Nautical Base of Mar Bella provides sports facilities, and bars around propose activities dedicated especially to the gay community.
- Pineda Beach (Castelldefels)
A bit further from the city are these almost 5km of sand that has all the amenities of a city beach. On this beach they have a multipurpose sport area where sports such as handball, volleyball and football can be played in their beach modality. You can also practice kite surfing. An excellent choice if you are looking for more space and getting out of the metropolitan area.
