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
