Barcelona is one of Europe's most popular destinations with amazing weather,food along with a multicultural cosmopolitan city. The beaches are fabulous and the most popular for tourists are Barceloneta next to metro port Olympic.
It surprised my friends that I had never been to the beach even though I had been to Barcelona several times. I preferred to socialize in local places less touristy plus the beach was full of tourists and is known to have pickpockets. I spent a lot of my social and free time in restaurants, hotels swimming pools, as well as other, places local sites away from tourist street.
The first time I went to the beach during summer, while I worked as a live in Nanny was a memorable experience. I remember that I was gobsmacked by the clear blue skies along with miles of sandy beaches surrounded by long strips of restaurants,.
I regret the fact that I had spent very little time at Barceloneta beach. I have been back to the beach several times since and I hope to stay at the W hotel it is gorgeous :)
Have you been to Barceloneta beach ?
