  • We walked all the way from the W Hotel at Barcelonetta Beach down to this beach - it's a really long walk past several beaches. This beach is definitely less touristy than the other beaches back towar...  more »
  • Paella went to food eaten back in Xiringuito Escribà. Barceloneta Beach include, but here the Barceloneta not crowded so the coast is off the beaten path. Many restaurants around.

  • Nova Icaria and Bogatella beaches were sandy, clean and beautiful. Not crowded in the morning, but more so as the day progressed. Some restaurants to go have lunch and use the restrooms. Some topless ...  more »

  • Very big beach with beautiful sand. Often has big waves. Near the city. There are few benches near trees that help you run away from the sun. 2 public showers are present. 4 is for some cigarettes leftovers that often can be found on beach.
  • Personally I like this beach better than the neighboring one for a couple reasons. It has a lot of outdoor activities like the volleyball courts and outdoor gym at the end by the pier. The service from the bars in the back was also incredible. It seemed a little more family oriented but still tons of fun.
  • Dirty beach filled with all types of garbage all over the beach that sadly ruins the great vibe. Cigarettes, glass, you name it. Our 2 year old kept handing me so many cigarette butts and plastic pieces while making a sandcastle that we just left. Looks beautiful from far but the water is not inviting. Barceloneta beach was surprisingly amazingly clean for the amount of crowd. Heard Mar Bella and further beaches are way better..will report back !
  • Very large and lovely beach. Tons of space with chairs and nets for those who wants to play around with balls or just relax. Good pubs with decent prices, even though their location is splendid. Bathrooms which are free. Overall, very good beach.
  • Very nice beach! Send all around, nice people, very relaxing watter with some waves. Good for kids too
