Barcelona has a beach and water front! Barcelona's famed water front and artificial beaches provided a breezy break from the crowded winding historic center. We joined the many joggers and cyclists on the palm lined board walk dotted with overflowing but expensive chiringuitos beach bards. We searched for our own patch of sand on its many beaches. From the crowded Barceloneta district to the nudist Platja de la Mar Bella there was something to suit every one. The beach and waterfront are open 24 hours for free. Barcelona was designed for visitors when tourism was rapidly developing on the Mediterranean coast.
