East of Las Ramblas is Barri Gòtic, the city’s oldest neighbourhood, which is home to a lot more cheap accommodation and offers just as much to do. There are artisan shops, endless food options and epic nightlife. For beach lovers the only option is Bareceloneta, which puts you within walking distance of the beach and some of the city’s best seafood. It’s also a great spot for skating in Barcelona.

No trip to Barcelona would be complete without a visit to La Sagrada Familia, one of the most intricate and awe-inspiring pieces of architecture in the world, which is also the most visited monument in Spain. The first step is getting from the airport to the city centre. You can take a shuttle which runs every five minutes and takes 30 minutes to get you into town,
or the train which takes about 25 minutes.

Barcelona is one of the most compact and densely populated cities in Europe, which means you’re rarely more than 20 minutes’ walk away from a point of interest.
The city also has a good network of cycle lanes, which makes renting a bicycle a great option. Finally, there’s public transport, which includes the metro, plus an extensive network of buses and trams.

Bambú

(Playa del Llevant, Barcelona).

This great spot offers a variety of tapas, burgers and sandwiches. Inspired by the relaxed beach bars of South-East Asia, Bambu is a great place to relax in a sun lounger or dance the night away. There’s an extensive cocktail, wine and beer list and host lots of social events throughout the summer.

Ibiza Chiringuito

Located 30 minutes by train outside of Barcelona, Castelldefels Beach is a long stretch of sand dotted with many chiringuitos. Just 10 minutes walk from Castelldefels Platja station is Ibiza Chiringuito which is a great place to enjoy a drink or lunch in between sunbathing and swimming. The food here is basic but well prepared – goat’s cheese salad, pan con tomato, burgers, fresh seafood and really good mussels. There’s also a great area for the kids with toys and little plastic houses to play in. If you’re coming out from Barcelona, catch the train from Sants or Passeig De Gracia. Note that there are two train stations in Castelldefels – if you’re coming from Barcelona, get off at the second one – Castelldefels Platja station.

(Bogatell Beach, Barcelona)

Located in Bogatell Beach, this beach restaurant is one of the best places to have paella in Barcelona. They also have seasonal seafood (the sardines and Galician style octopus are to die for) and excellent appetizers (the cured Spanish ham ‘airbags’ are a must). They also have a selection of vegetarian and gluten-free options. Make sure to leave room for dessert, because you can’t leave the table without having tried one of the cakes or sweets prepared by the Escriba family’s bakeries.

One of Barcelona’s most picturesque beaches, Ocata is a 30-minute train ride up the coast, towards the Costa Brava. With its clear waters and wide open beach front with white sand, it’s where the locals come to escape the crowds in summer. It’s also famous for its chiringuitos such as Chiringo Calima which has a great selection of delicious salads, tapas, homemade burgers and more. Staff are friendly and prices are reasonable. You can easily catch the train from Arc de Triomf station or Plaza Catalunya.

(Bogatell Beach, Barcelona)

Can Fisher is also owned by the Pantea Group and has something of a California in the 1950s vibe. Its clean modern design and large open terrace makes the most of the panoramic views of the ocean. Here the emphasis is on fresh, delicious and sustainably caught seafood and locally grown products. There is a “Raw” bar featuring delicious fresh salads, ceviche, tuna tartar as well as an impressive selection of seafood and paella.

Terrassa Voramar Chiringuito

(Sant Pol de Mar)

Sant Pol de Mar is a beautiful fishing village 1 hour North of Barcelona. Home of the famous Restaurant Sant Pau by Michelin-starred chef Carmen Ruscalleda, Sant Pol de Mar is a quiet place with lots of charm. Warm, pebbly sand offers plenty of room to lay back and relax without the chaos of the city beaches. At the corner of the main beach (just across from the train tunnel) is a Terrassa Voramar chiringuito, with its wooden furniture, and a dining area shaded by lush green vines trellises. Food focuses on locally caught seafood – think of freshly grilled sardines washed down with a crisp white wine or homemade paella stuffed with locally caught seafood.

User reviews

“A stunning, expansive sandy shoreline that never appears to be excessively packed. It’s an ideal break from the city, even though it’s only a 20-25 minute train ride from the downtown area of Barcelona. There are a few awesome beach bars along the beach with a great vibe, delicious food and the best kids’ play area ever. We keep returning.”

“Platja d’Ocata is in a league of its own! Far superior to Barceloneta, yet still conveniently close to the city. It’s a must-visit!”
