The main beaches of Barcelona and surroundings

playas barcelonaIn Barcelona city can find a total of 9 beaches, we can say that are not very different but what if varies considerably is the influx to each of them. If you are visiting Barcelona you can not miss:

Barceloneta beach: is one of the largest beaches in Barcelona. This is one of the busiest beaches due to its location (it is the most central) and one that has better communication by public transport. You can get there by bus, metro or by tram. On the beach of Barceloneta you will find beach bars, sports areas, showers and public toilets.
Nova Icària Beach: Located next to the Olympic port, can be reached by public transport or after a walk along the promenade. Is the beach that has more sports facilities (especially beach volleyball courts).


Playa Mar Bella: this beach of “recent” creation born in the 1.992 result of urban redevelopment suffered Barcelona for the Olympic Games. This beach has a nudist space and a water sports area.

Nova Mar Bella Beach: born at the same time and the result of the same remodeling the beach of Mar Bella. It is a beach that many people do not go and find a little more quiet than in the Playa de la Mar Bella.

Bogatell Beach: beach, which was restored in the 90s will find many people, but not to the levels of the Barceloneta beach.

Less than 40 minutes from Barcelona beaches can also be found that will impact their beauty or tranquility in one of them. Let us begin:

Sitges: a special location, beach and mountains come together leaving a landscape that is unmatched. Its main beaches are very busy, but if ye movéis by the coves you will find very quiet places where you will be able to relax and enjoy the sea breeze. It can be reached by car or train. The way in both cases does not exceed 40 minutes.

Mataro: Maresme capital, was the last stop of the first via railway of Spain. In this town north of Barcelona you will find great splayas sand and chrirnguitos that will make you enjoy your days at the beach. Also in the port area you can enjoy a wide variety in terms of restoration is concerned.

Playa Port Forum. A peculiar beach, close to Barcelona (just 10 minutes from Clot station is a unique place, where are the mouth of the River Besos, a large green gardens and large metal structures and chimneys (which surely’ve ever seen in typical photos of the city). it is not one of the most beautiful, but if you have time and I like to enjoy the city by bike a ride along the coast we recommend, departing from the beach of Barceloneta . If you get tired, just around you you can always come back with the train or tram.

These are some of the beaches on the Barcelona coastline, we will be revealing more this summer
