About Barcelona's Beaches
The beaches of Barcelona are one of the reasons why the city is packed with tourists from all over the world. Some will stay in hotels with pools near the beach, while other will prefer to stay in hotels in the city center. During the summer (June to September) you can find on the beaches families, surfers, same-sex couples, nudists, pensioners and youth who want to take part in Barcelona's vibrant beach scene. Barcelona’s beaches are ‘urban' beaches, unlike Thailand’s or Greece’s beaches. You’ll find here volleyball games, bars, ice cream stands, street food and beverage sellers, restaurants and music complexes. However, even if you do not want to be at the heart of the scene, a quick meal or a drink at one of the restaurants or bars along the coastline is definitely something to do in Barcelona.
