Nova Mar Bella Beach, Barcelona

4.3
#8 of 17 in Beaches in Province of Barcelona
Kick back and relax at Nova Mar Bella Beach, a stretch of golden sand boasting a number of facilities for enjoying the seaside. Don your suit and make a splash along this nearly 500 m (1,640 ft) long waterfront area, replete with snack kiosks, bike paths, sitting areas, and restaurants. Go for a wander on the shoreline, grab a cold drink, or just lay back and stick your toes in the soft sand. Try grabbing a metered parking spot on the road next to the beach for easy access. Keep in mind before visiting that the beach is popular as a nudist bathing spot.

    Glad that a city has a beach so careful with good parking to be Barcelona is a luxury! A great success

    Two sun beds with shade cost €23 for the whole day, so is a good price. The prices for drinks are acceptable, i.e. €5.50 for a beer and €9.50 for a Gin Tonic, each half a litre. Clothing is optional.

Where to stay in Barcelona

Because the city's metro system makes traveling from area to area relatively painless, you have more flexibility in choosing a place to stay. Barceloneta, the neighborhood surrounding the city beach is somewhat removed from the city center, making its hotels popular with families. Only a 15-minute walk from the center, Barceloneta has a more laid-back beach atmosphere but still offers several restaurants and entertainment options. Farther away from the beach and closer to the city center, El Born is a charming neighborhood well-known for its restaurants and lively bar scene. Eixample is also popular as it is more central and home to some of the city's best shopping and tourist sites, including La Sagrada Familia. For a more traditional experience, consider staying in the Gothic Quarter, the heart of Old Barcelona. This picturesque neighborhood boasts a tight network of historical architecture with boutique hotels and traditional restaurants.
