Beach map barcelona. Barcelona beaches map (Catalonia Spain) to print. Barcelona beaches map (Catalonia Spain) to download. On more than 4,5km Barcelona offers beautiful beaches. The most appreciated are: la Barceloneta, Mar Bella, Nova Icaria and Bogatell. Barceloneta is probably the closest beach to Barcelona center 20 minutes by foot or by taking the yellow metro line as its shown in barcelona beaches map. The particularity of the Barceloneta beach is that it stretches along a dike full of very good little nice restaurants.
Somorrostro Beach is centrally located and easily accessible by public transport in Barcelona. It is one of the favorite beach areas for young Barcelonians and foreign tourists (see barcelona beaches map). The beach was recently renamed to pay tribute to the Somorrostro shantytown which, after a hundred years of existence, was demolished for Franco visit to Barcelona in 1966.
Mar Bella Beach was created during the urban redevelopment, when the coastline was rebuilt for the 1992 Olympic Games (as its mentioned in barcelona beaches map). The beach of Barcelona, which is frequented by a rather young public, has an area reserved for nudists as well as various sports facilities such as a volleyball court, a basketball hoop and a ping-pong table. There is also a nautical base since aquatic activities are organized there.
