The beaches of Barcelona

Perhaps the city of Barcelona is known for many things before its beaches, however, these are still highly recommended for tourists and locals who do not have time or possibility to escape to the waters of the Costa Brava, Castelldefels or Sitges.The main beaches of the town are Sant Miquel, Barceloneta beach, Nova Icaria beach, Bogatell beach and Mar Bella beach.

Located near the main tourist attractions of the city, they are a real treat especially when the good weather allows you to spend the day sunbathing, exercising or swimming.

You can use public transport to get to the beach, there are buses that go all the way or you can also take the metro, getting off at Ciutadella-Vila Olímplica station, on line 4 or the yellow line.

Unlike the rest of the city, there is not a wide range of hotels on offer, but there are undoubtedly some of the most spectacular ones The W Barcelona Hotel, also known as the Hotel Sailing for its architecture, is currently considered the most fashionable hotel in Barcelona and has earned the Arts Hotel the title of the best hotel in Barcelona.

In front of the W Hotel we find the Barceloneta beach which, together with Somorrostro beach, is the oldest and most traditional beach in the city.On this same beach we also find the Hotel 54 Barceloneta (3 stars) and the Pullman Barcelona Skipper, a luxury 5 star hotel situated near the beach, the centre and the Puerto Olimpico.

To one side we find the Somorrostro beach, which goes from the Espigón del Gas to the Puerto Olimpico and measures approximately half of Barceloneta.It is a very visited area of the beach because being in the coastal center of the city has multiple forms of public transport: metro (Barceloneta and Ciutadella stations L4), bus (10, 14, 16, 17, 36, 39, 40, 45, 51, 57, 59 and 64) and tram (Ciutadella-Vila Olímpica stop).

Somorrostro has the best range of discotheques on the beach and some of the best in the whole city, such as Opium and Pacha Barcelona, frequented mainly by foreigners.There is also the exclusive Hotel Arts, housed in an emblematic building of Barcelona and which, together with the neighbouring Torre Mapfre – of the same height but not a twin tower – can be seen from many parts of the city.

Somorrostro also has sports, artistic and cultural centres, such as the Centre de la Platja, in front of the Hospital del Mar, which is an environmental education centre dedicated to promoting the city’s coastline.

If you’re looking for peace and quiet, the best place to go is to Nova Icària and Bogatell beaches, where bathers can stay for longer.It is one of the beaches that was created by taking advantage of the urban development remodelling for the 1992 Barcelona Olympic Games and here we find hotels such as the Hesperia del Mar and the Barcelo Atenea is a quiet area, well communicated with the rest of the city and close to commercial areas such as the Diagonal Mar Centre Comercial, one of the largest stores in the city.
