Beaches: Barceloneta, Mar Bella & Bogatell

Two of Barcelona's most popular beaches, Mar Bella & Bogatell are just a few minutes apart. Mar Bella is a naturist and gay-friendly beach, while Bogatell is known for volleyball and sunbathing. Both are located within walking distance of trendy bars and restaurants. However, the most popular beach in Barcelona is Barceloneta, mainly for its proximity to the city centre. Visited by tourists and locals, particularly as an after-work spot, Barceloneta Beach stretches from the Hotel Vela on the harbour-side for around 2 kilometres up to the Hotel Arts on the Puerto Olimpíco. Between these two landmarks, the fine sands and the beach promenade are particularly inviting for cyclists, joggers, and inline skaters.

Basilica de Santa Maria del Mar

One of Barcelona's most beautiful churches is probably the best existing example of Catalonian Gothic, with a cleaner style than what is normally associated with Gothic architecture. Construction of the Basilica of Santa Maria del Mar began in 1329 and finished in 1383, a record time considering this type of construction. The church has an incredible feeling of spaciousness and weightlessness emphasized by slender pillars and very sparsely decorated chapels. Three naves of the same height, supported by very tall pillars, are the main features of the structure. The splendid rose window on the main façade allows for the illumination of the church together with the beautiful stained glass windows.

Best Time to Visit

Barcelona, the second-largest city in Spain, is the first tourist destination of the country, ahead of its rival Madrid. The city is particularly appreciated for its climate because it enjoys beautiful and sunny days eight months per year. It is popular with tourists from around the world during the two summer months because of its high temperatures, which can reach up to 37°C. The many nearby beaches are perfect for a swim after a long day of sightseeing but expect a busy crowd. Spring and autumn are, therefore, the best time to visit Barcelona. During these seasons, you can enjoy the sun and the beautiful and shining days away from the holidaymakers of July and August. Besides, the prices are more affordable, so it is easier to find a place to eat and sleep. It is also possible to explore the Catalan capital during the winter because the climate is cool, but the temperatures are still mild. You will not find negative temperatures or frosts at this time of the year.

Frequently Asked Questions about Barcelona (FAQs)

Is Barcelona a safe city? Yes. Although Barcelona is a big city – the second-largest in Spain and the most visited city in the country – it is still considered a fairly safe place for tourists. However, as with most popular tourist destinations, such as Paris, pickpockets and bag thieves are the biggest concerns here. So be careful when walking around and taking pictures near major tourist attractions, such as La Rambla, Plaça Catalunya, and La Sagrada Familia. What is Barcelona famous for? Barcelona, the capital of Catalonia, is famous for its remarkable architecture, gold-sand beaches, vibrant nightlife, world-class cuisine, and of course, its local football team, commonly known as Barça. Is Barcelona expensive? Yes, Barcelona is quite expensive to visit but still more affordable when compared to other European destinations, such as Paris, London, and Rome. As of today, the average cost per traveller in Barcelona is between €90-120 per day. How many days do you need for Barcelona? First-time travellers should try and plan around 4-5 days – enough time to visit the city's main attractions, explore its characterful neighbourhoods and still have time to kick back and relax at the beach.
