Barceloneta Beach

Visit Barcelona’s most beloved shorefront and experience a culture of energetic watersports, elaborate coastal art and lively all-night beach parties.

Get a taste of the vibrant coastal culture that draws crowds to Barcelona’s Barceloneta Beach. Just near La Rambla, this Mediterranean shoreline is the major hub of the Barceloneta neighbourhood. Come to people-watch over coffee or swim in temperate waters.  

As it is one of Barcelona’s most popular beaches, arrive early to snag a prime sunbathing spot. Rent sun loungers and beach umbrellas nearby for maximum comfort. Showers and changing facilities are also available. 

Venture into the ocean to cool off or try windsurfing or kite surfing in these ideal conditions. For some land-based exercise, join a volleyball game with energetic locals. Patrolling lifeguards ensure the beach is a safe environment. 

If you’re not in the mood for a dip, enjoy the ambience of the Passeig Maritim, the beachside promenade. Watch joggers, cyclists and rollerbladers passing while you visit the Homenatge a la Barceloneta, a leaning tower monument by German artist Rebecca Horn. Further on, spot Frank Gehry’s iconic sculpture, the Peix d’Or (Golden Fish).

When you need refreshments, sit at one of several chiringuitos (beach bars) and order sangria accompanied by seafood and paella dishes. After dark, these bars become lively beach parties, complete with live music and DJ sets. Fine dining with a coastal view is found along Passeig de Joan de Borbó.

Another popular nightspot is the Port Olímpic, at the beach’s northern end. Built to host the 1992 Olympic Games, this area now hosts many of Barcelona’s most frequented bars, nightclubs and casinos.

The Barceloneta neighbourhood offers a number of charming activities. Take the kids to peruse vibrant fish displays and shark feedings at l’Aquarium de Barcelona. Have a picnic in the shady Parc de la Barceloneta. Alternatively, discover the area’s history at the Casa de Barceloneta, an 18th-century house that preserves a number of ancient exhibits.

Find Barceloneta Beach just 20 minutes walk from La Rambla, Barcelona’s famous tree-lined promenade. Get there using public buses and the metro. A hop-on, hop-off tourist bus also stops nearby.
