Barceloneta Beach in Barcelona is the most popular strip of sand in the city ©tkemot/Shutterstock

1. Barceloneta Beach          

This is it: the epicenter of Barcelona’s beaches; the most popular strip of sand in the city. Just east of its namesake neighborhood, Barceloneta Beach throngs with sun-seekers, mojito vendors and sarong sellers during the height of summer. 

Entirely manmade, its pharaonic gold sands were shipped over from Egypt and the palm trees along the promenade once called Hawaii home. For some, it might feel like a circus, but for many others, this iconic stretch of parasol-lined paradise epitomizes the energy of the city. We’re firmly in the latter camp.

2. Mar Bella Beach         

Towards the north of Barcelona’s coastline is this wonderfully cosmopolitan stretch of soft blonde sand, which is ever-popular with an LGBTQI+ crowd. Mar Bella Beach has a small nudist strip, which is clearly marked, as well as a number of other amenities, including a skate park and some water sports.

3. Bogatell Beach

Fronting the hip El Poblenou neighborhood, the fluffy golden-white sands of Bogatell Beach host volleyball courts and a few seasonal xiringuitos (beach bars) with sun loungers and umbrellas. 

There are a couple of excellent seafood restaurants on the promenade above, including much-loved Xiringuito Escribà, but down on the sand, this is as quiet a beach as you’re going to get in this part of Barcelona.

4. Nova Icària Beach

Arguably Barcelona’s best beach for families, the southernmost strip of golden sand above Port Olímpic often echoes with the excited squeals of young children. But that’s unsurprising: with a wide selection of sports facilities, including table tennis and beach volleyball, lifeguards on patrol, and warm, shallow waters, Nova Icària Beach is the ideal place for parents to let their kids run down the tank.

5. Sant Sebastià Beach

Beneath the glass gaze of W Barcelona, the 26-story, sail-shaped beach hotel that puffs out at the southern end of La Barceloneta, is this wonderful slice of sun, surf and sand. Sant Sebastià Beach is a handy stretch of white-gold for those looking for a quick break from the city.

Nova Mar Bella Beach

This crescent of sparkling gold sand is where the locals tend to hangout. Located towards the north of the El Poblenou beaches, it’s usually dotted with brightly-colored beach umbrellas and sun loungers fixed in the horizontal position. Nova Mar Bella Beach still has plenty of facilities, including showers and a couple of beach bars, but it’s far more chilled than most of the beaches this end of the city.

7. Sant Miquel Beach 

Taking its name from the 18th-century church in nearby Barceloneta, this stretch of soft honey-gold sand is one of the oldest beaches in Barcelona. Due to its proximity to the old city, Sant Miquel Beach is often busy, but it’s worth spreading your towel out for a while — if only to see Rebecca Horn’s L’Estel ferit (The Wounded Shooting Star), a sculpture of four stacked cubes that look like they might topple over at any moment.

8. Zona de Banys del Fòrum 

Not a beach in the traditional bucket and spade sense – there’s no sand here – but for all intents and purposes, the bathing area at El Fòrum acts as one. With a number of diving pontoons, several shaded areas and a groyne of solid concrete cubes, this beach-by-design is architecture you can use.

Located at the most eastern point of the city’s shoreline, where the massive Pergola solar panel glints in the sunshine, this sea-fed swimming area is around 375m-long (1230ft) and 30-m (98ft) wide and includes steps down into the water that have been adapted to allow access for disabled travelers too.

9. Somorrostro Beach

Stretching out like a soft golden cat between Gas breakwater and the Moll de Marina pier, Somorrostro Beach makes locals purr with delight. This stretch of sand is where Frank Gehry’s El Peix (Golden Fish) sculpture dangles enticingly out-of-reach on the promenade above. It can get busy during the summer months.

10. Castelldefels Beach

Around 20km southwest of Barcelona city center, this beautiful long sweep of golden-blonde sand beloved by kitesurfers is accessible by train. Backed by some fairly hefty sand dunes, Castelldefels Beach is a blissful escape and rarely packed. Its pink-and-apricot sunsets are often exquisite.

11. Ocata Beach – El Masnou

The beach town of El Masnou is only around 30 minutes from Barcelona by train, but the journey is worth it for this long curl of burnished bronze sand. Motorway-wide, there’s plenty of room for spreading out, plus its healthy number of xiringuitos (beach bars) will allow visitors to make a day of it.

Although much more peaceful than the inner-cities beaches, beware that the drop of the beach scarp, the area between the shoreline and the seafloor, is much steeper than in Barcelona.

  2. Bogatell Beach
  3. Sant Sebastià Beach
  4. Nova Icària Beach
  5. Mar Bella Beach
  6. Nova Mar Bella

Beaches might not be the first thing that comes to mind when you think of Barcelona, but the Catalan capital has a lot more to it than cloud-brushing cathedrals and bustling street markets.

There are plenty of seafront spots to lounge out on, and one thing they all have in common is sand – you’ll have to head a long way out of the city to find a pebble beach.

Top of the list – for location at least – is the golden sands of Barceloneta. It’s the city’s most popular beach, which can be found just a couple of minutes’ walk from the hustle and bustle of Las Ramblas. Given its location, this one gets particularly busy over the summer months, so it’s one to avoid if you don’t like the crowds.

For a slightly quieter vibe you can head just a little further along the coast to Nova Icaria Beach. This 400-metre stretch of sand is just past the bars and nightlife of Port Olimpic, but the beach itself is very family-friendly. A children’s play area, beach volleyball courts and ping-pong tables can all be found here and it’s got a Blue Flag tick to its name too.

And perhaps the best all-round beach in Barcelona is Bogatell Beach. This 600-metre stretch of powdery white sand comes with Blue Flag status and a prime position on the coast, just five minutes’ walk from Port Olimpic’s bars and restaurants. There’s plenty of space for lounging around and it’s popular with sporty types too, due to its designated areas for beach volleyball, football and basketball.
