Beaches in Barcelona

Beaches of fine, golden sand in the heart of the city, just a stone’s throw from Barcelona’s historical centre.

4.5 km of urban beaches, where you can walk, sunbathe and refresh yourself in the sea or rest in the shade of one of the many beach bars.

The beaches are often used as the setting for city celebrations, such as the magical night of San Juan, where you can enjoy the heat of the bonfires under the moonlight.

There are several swimming areas perfect for a day out with the family, as the waters are usually shallow. All of them are perfectly equipped and are easily accessible by public transport from any point in the city.
