The most famous beach of the Catalan capital in tune with its name, is the beach of Barceloneta. It is easily accessible from the Metro station, or simply on foot. The walk from the Gothic Quarter to the beach takes about 15-20 minutes.
In high season this beach is too crowded, no room to swing fall, water purity also leaves much to be desired. At Barceloneta often come just for parties and socializing for a relaxing holiday by the sea is better to choose other beaches.
There is always a lot of young people from all over the world, all the drinking, smoking, and get acquainted with each other. The noise of the waves drown out the cries of vendors of beer and mojitos, Chinese masseuses and other merchants. Summer get-together here until late at night. Hippie build sand castles, that then you will be able to take a picture for a few coins, dealers sell weed, thieves and pickpockets are on the alert, in general, this city beach house, which, to be honest, the amateur.
