La Barceloneta, Barcelona

4.0
#1 of 196 in Outdoors in Barcelona
Spend time relaxing on the sandy expanse of La Barceloneta. This bustling beach is a favorite among tourists and locals alike, famed for its fiesta atmosphere. Build a sandcastle, dip your toes in the Mediterranean Sea, or sunbathe. If you’re feeling active, join in a game of beach volleyball or table tennis. Look for the modern art on display: the “Homenatge a la Barceloneta” monument and “Peix d’Or” sculptures. Once you’ve worked up an appetite, sample the catch of the day at one of many seafood restaurants located on the boardwalk.

  • It would be a Beach much better if it were not so jam-packed with people, of all forms is worth the visit.

  • From the city of Barcelona's Beach within walking distance. Warm sunshine of winters was good, was good. I would be more crowded in the summer. This is the area near the restaurant, such as paella and laid-back.

  • As I went in winter will speak as it is go to the Barceloneta in this season: NO SE LO PIERDAN! The place is beautiful and although it is not to get in the water you can enjoy the waterfront, walk along the docks, eat and drink rich in the bars that are very close to the coast, walk along the sand, feel the noise of the waves. It's a beautiful walk to a bus in the center of barcelona, and take advantage of little people that's out there for not being season. If you love the sea as I do not miss it!

  • Very nice serving staff, Great food. The meat paella was excellent. The fideuà (tried it for the first time) was excellent. The minimum 2 person, 1 kg steak was very tasty too (its served in a cast iron plate/pan do you can further cook if you want it more than rare /medium rare. The sangria tasted more like just a small glass of red wine. Sangria taste varies so much in Barcelona from restaurant to restaurant. Great view from the restaurant too! They have great tomato brushed bread as an appetizer. I loved that it was thin and crispy. One of the best I had tried in Barcelona.
  • an amazing experience. the seafood was so fresh. a little bug flew into my husband's wine glass and we didnt even notice it but the manager spotted it and replaced it for us! so attentive! service was amazing and ambience was great.
  • Myself and partner have been to some very nice restaurants in the past and were thoroughly looking forward to what this place had to offer, as it was our last night we wanted something special with a nice view of the marina.... unfortunately the service we received was apauling! The worst we have ever had! We were completely ignored by our waiter and then the manager! Whether it was because we were British, I don't know! We left very disgruntled and with no apology. Luckily we found La Gavina also near the marina, they really turned our last night around! Staff were the complete opposite. Very attentive and the paella was brilliant!!! Trust us and go here instead :)
  • Very nice restaurant definitely need reservation. I would highly recommend it for what they call Rap fish. It was ecellent! Nice location too!
  • Impeccable service. Incredible setting (choose terrace/outside with view if you can.) The food is good but overpriced. We order 2 types of paella (see pic) but the fideua was our favorite. Also, the pan con tomate and marinated olives is worth alone 3 stars (pics)
