Barceloneta Beach

Barceloneta, CT, Spain
11 Kudos
Barceloneta has around 2.5 miles 4 km of beaches and the most popular is Platja de la Barceloneta, which is closest to the downtown district of the city and draws in locals and tourists. Barceloneta is the old quarter for fishermen, which has streets laid out in a distinctive grid system. In the later years of the twentieth century it became rundown but then along came the Olympic Games in 1992 and the whole area was regenerated. The beach is a colorful mix of human inhabitants of Barcelona. We headed there for a swim in the Mediterranean and to strip off and bask in the Spanish sun.
