Nice beach! Clean, long and wide. Less crowdy then Barceloneta. You find plenty of bars and restaurants along the beach. Worth a visit! Took around 20min with train from Barcelona/Arc Triomf (9EU both ways).

Less crowded then the touristy Barcelona beaches with mainly locals chilling out, much more relaxed and some very authentic local tapas restaurant on the promenade serving not only great tapas but a lot cheaper. One other upside, hardly any tourist mainly locals which I love

Despite the good location, so close to Barcelona, and the nice beach almost all of my visits were disappointing. The water is really dirty. Dirty as in: sewage contaminated water is flowing into the sea. Nobody cares about warning you. Not even the official beaches...More

First visit to this beach and it is far quieter than the beaches at Barcelona. The beach clean and the beach restuarant lovely. Well worth a visit.

This is a great Blue Beach with lots of choices for the tourist and lots of water activities. Just enjoy the walk along it and you will find food, beverages and activities. Lifeguards and places to relax in your birthday suit....all up to you.
