La Barceloneta, Barcelona

(4.2/5 based on 1,400+ reviews on the web)
To hit up the beaches that help make the city so beloved, head to La Barceloneta. Dip into the Mediterranean at this stretch of sand, which earned mention the second book of Don Quixote. Traditionally the fisherman’s quarter, the neighborhood still serves up fresh seafood in its abundant restaurants. Stroll along the boardwalk, watch the surfers, or stop for a glass of wine at one of the many beachside bars. Make sure you also check out two landmarks: Rebecca Horn's "Homenatge a la Barceloneta" monument and Frank Gehry's "Peix d'Or" sculpture. Arrange your visit to La Barceloneta and discover more family-friendly attractions in Barcelona using our Barcelona trip builder.

  • Upon entering this area you will notice a cheerful, vitality, also tourist environment but breathing sea, eats fish and delicious paella dishes in various restaurants, especially La Gavina and Barceloneta. It also has the beach on the side, although it is the most crowded, and with more thefts.

  • Go, walk, breathe, enjoy this beautiful cosmopolitan area. Perhaps some sellers it stalking a bit, but make case disregard to this. Visit this area, no doubt.

  • Very nice promenade facing the sea, with very good restaurants and bars for tapas. Both in summer as in winter, the place is very nice. Next to the Ramblas and at the Parc of the Ciutadella, of easy access
