Port Olimpic, Barcelona: 6 reviews and 12 photos


Favorite thing: <b><center><font face='century gothic' size=+1 color=000080>Barcelona Beaches</center></b></font>

<font face='century gothic' color=000080>these beaches are not the most fantastic you have luck to see in your life, but in these last years their quality (sand and water) has grown so much!!

Thanks to 1992 Olympic Games Barcelona has changed his face and recover the beaches where for a long time only passes the train and that area was ful of industries.

Now we can enjoy with 5 beaches, each one with their feature that i want to explain here

the best way to arrive is taking the subway and go down in <b>Ciutadella Vila Olimpica</b> yellow line, and follow the street to right hand once in the ground
<li>The first beach you can find is <b>Nova Icaria</b> the fullest and easy recognized beach in summer due to Pizza hut restaurant, that i only visit some afternoon to see how people playing Beach volley

<li>The next and the most interesting for me is <b>Bogatell</b> (also subway Bogatell station)it always is emptier than Nova Icaria and water is cleaner too

<li>Third <b>Mar Bella</b> Also quiet and calm beach cause its further away of touristic guides!!, Above all you could see spanish or catalonian people there

<li>The last is <b>Nova Mar Bella</b> that i dont suggest cause there are 'next' to it the Besos river outlet, and Besos isnt a clean and gorgeous river of course

<li>In that list i forgot the most typical beach in Barcelona, <b>La Barceloneta</b> placed to left hand seeing to sea of Nova Icaria beach and far away from Vila Olimpica freetime zone and Mafre and Arts Hotel Towers. Its in front of Barcelona Sea Hospital (look at your guide map). To arrive there twopotions Barcelona subway station or Ciutadella</ul></font>
