Originally a fisherman’s quarter, this quaint area
can’t escape its small village feel: laundry hanging
over the narrow streets, old ladies clamoring at each

games on short wooden benches gossiping the day away,
Barceloneta could double as a film set. Artists line
the boardwalk displaying their magnificently detailed
sand structures making this the most visited beach in

There are some nice apartments as well looking over the beach, but I never stayed in once of those since I want to be more centralized near La Rambla. Check on Booking or Expedia.
