Welcome to Beaches


Many people forget that Barcelona is not only a big bustling city and cultural centre, but that it's bordered by the Mediterranean Sea, awarding the coastline with a string of attractive beaches, an ideal diversion after excessive sightseeing and shopping. Visit the popular Barceloneta Beach only ten minutes from the city centre where there are a selection of beach bars, cool down with a refreshing swim and marvel at the bizarre architecture of Homenatge a la Barceloneta, by Rebecca Horn. For more peace and quiet during the summer season venture a bit further to either Icaria, Mar Bella or Stiges Beach, where the crowds would have dissipated.
