  • The Nova Icaria Beach is bounded by Port Olímpic and the Bogatell beach. Above limits you the Ronda del Litoral. It's a clean, wide beach where also the headquarters of the Municipal sailing Centre is located. It is widely used due to its proximity to the Port Olímpic, being equipped with elements for the practice of sport. There are beach bars and bars on the beach and the promenade.
