Barcelona Beaches

One of the many great things about Barcelona, is that you can combine beach and city all in one trip.

You even have a choice of beach, from the most southerly (closes to Port Vell), Sant Sebastià, to the most northerly, Banys Fòrum, with a mixture of bars, restaurants and beach facilities.

This  sunny but windy day last week was greeted with delight by locals and tourists alike, following, as it did, a few days of cold wind and rain.

The sand, bars and benches were all well populated.

And if you couldn’t find room on a bench, there was always the  steps.

The beach vendors with their swathes of pareos and trays of mojitos, must have been delighted to have prospective purchasers back at the beach.

  1. Lovely long bench with a really long beach(es) but I’d get very tired of been harassed by beach vendors. I think that is why I prefer a nice quiet English cove.

  2. Now, I figured out that it isn’t San Sebastian in Basque country 😉 I was in Barcelona in 1988, but I’ll go back to take some photos.

  3. Going to Barcelona in August! Cannot wait, just wondering whether there will be enough time to get to the beach, seeing your pics I guess we better make sure we do (if there is space however!).
