Inspirock Rating:
3.7/5 based on 45+ reviews on the web
Swim and relax at Platja de la Nova Icaria, offering beach lounger and umbrella rental, lockers, and dressing rooms. An onsite lifeguard offers added security. The water has vegetation in it near the shore, but farther out it becomes crystal clear. Do be careful with children, however, as the water gets deep fast. The beach also offers assisted swimming for travelers with disabilities. Head to one of several bars and restaurants behind the beach for refreshment.

  • Very very dirty beaches. You can see all kinds of things flowing in the water. Plus the send is not really send. (Shredded rocks!). If you want real beaches, get out of Barcelona by train. I recommend Mongat, Mongat Nord y Ocata
  • Gula Casto Hori
  • Lovely, clean beach. Quiet without being boring. Much better alternative to busy Barcelonetta. About €10 a lounger.
  • Beaches OK, a little dirty, amazing ambiance and good people
