I love city beaches! The beach at Barceloneta is certainly not as great a beach as some that spring to mind but in terms of location it takes some beating. What better way to relax after a busy day’s shopping or sightseeing than to head over to one of the ‘chiringuito’ beach bars at Barceloneta and watch the world go by.
For better beaches in the area you can take a local train out to Castelldefels to the south or further along the same line to the popular resort of Sitges.
My son and grandchildren live in Barcelona and love it just as I do!
You can walk there from the touristy Ramblas area of the city or arrive via its very own metro stop (Metro Barceloneta).
