Barcelona is a city open to the sea, with many miles of coastline. Its sandy, clear water and large beaches extend for over 4.5 km in length and host more than seven million people each year.

The beaches, just 10 minutes away from the city centre by public transportation, complement Barcelona´s cultural offerings and can be enjoyed at any time of the year. They are perfect to take a stroll, enjoy the view and the weather, swim in the Mediterranean Sea or cycle by the boardwalk. Sailing, windsurfing and kite surfing are among the most popular water sports and it´s common to see people playing beach volleyball or surfing.

One of the best known beaches is Barceloneta. Here, visitors can experience a day at the beach and wander around the fishermen´s neighbourhood which takes the same name. This seaside district is full of traditional shops, restaurants and bars to taste delicious seafood.
