Located in the neighborhood of the same name, this beach with fine-grained sand is popular among locals and tourists for its nightlife facilities. The promenade is lined with many restaurants serving fresh seafood and traditional Catalan and Spanish dishes. You should also try Sangria - a popular drink consisting of red wine and fruit.
See the Homenatge a la Barceloneta monument created by the famous artist Rebecca Horn and Frank Gehry's futuristic sculpture called “Peix d’Or”.
On a sunny day, the city's most popular beach can get quite crowded. If you prefer a place that is a bit quieter, pick one of the beaches farther from the center.
