Playa de la Barceloneta Beach Vacation & Travel Guide

Barceloneta Beach is the most central and most popular beach in Barcelona. It’s an excellent spot for people-watching, with a lively atmosphere and plenty of things to do. Besides sunbathing and swimming, you can try your hand at beach volleyball, paddle-boarding, or kayaking. Or, if you’re feeling lazy, relax on a sun lounger with a good book.

Barceloneta is also the perfect place to enjoy a meal or a drink by the sea. The beach is lined with restaurants, bars, and cafes, so you can refuel without leaving the sand.
