When you visiting the Barcelona,what be situated at the Mediterranean Sea, you must certainly swim in the sea.

We was in Barcelona in May, and decided go to swim. It was sunny day, air temperature was at intervals 25-30 Celsius. It was normal warm summer-day for us.
When we arrive at Barceloneta beach. there was fishermans, who wearing the cardigan on. It was funny for us ;)
Water was gorgeous, we enjoy the water and swimming.

Approximately 1,100 m long, together with the Sant SebastiÓ beach, Barceloneta is one of the biggest in Barcelona, and it is also one of the oldest and most traditional beach in the city. It is a favourite amongst our foreign visitors and it is commonly used by youth groups and for school activities. Due to its location and proximity to the metro and many bus lines, the majority of its users get to the beach by public transport.
