  • Beautiful even during rainy day
  • Clean, calm and the sand doesn't stick in all places. I went pretty early in the morning to avoid the crowds. Warm water and public toilets all over.
  • Must see in Barcelona. Beautiful sandy beach with good bus connection. Only bad thing - almost every 5 minutes there was somebody trying to sell me beer, water, sangria, mochito...
  • Just beautiful. So many things to do on the beach including a great selection of restaurants. Must visit while in town.
  • Nice 🌎
