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.
