4 better beaches than Barceloneta

4 better beaches than Barceloneta

Want to go to the beach but you’re tires of Barceloneta? We got you.

Escaping the dirty sand is easier than you think.

  1. Platja de la Nova Icària

This beach is real close to Barceloneta, north from the beach clubs! Locals love it as it is the perfect choice to get much cleaner sand and water, more space and usually less people. You can as well rent umbrellas for 10-12 euros/day. Unfortunately (or not), you will not escape the street vendors, so you’d better get prepared for many massage and beer-cerveza offers.

Don’t forget to keep an eye on your bags.

  1. Platja del Bogatell

This lovely beach is very similar to its neighbor Nova Icària. The two beaches are right next so you can easily go from one to the other. It is also clear and more spacious, less touristy, not that crowded and usually has less street vendors. It is definitely worth taking a longer walk to get there.

  1. Badalona

Badalona is a little town right next to Barcelona and a perfect choice for a weekend beach experience. The beaches stretch alongside the town and are definitely better and less crowded than most of beaches in Barcelona. Good quality of sand and sea makes it all worth a visit. We advise you take the R1 train towards Macanet-Massanes from Barcelona-Stants or Plaça de Catalunya and get off in Badalona. It should cost you no more than 4 euros. You can also go by metro line L2.

  1. Castelldelfels

Castelldefels is a town just 30 minutes south from Barcelona and an awesome place for a day out. The beach is just massive: long, spacious and beautiful, definitely better than any beach in Barcelona. There are showers everywhere and many other facilities. You can easily try kite surfing, take a drink at a bar or collect some shells. We advise you take a train R2 from Barcelona-Sants or Passeig de Gràcia. It shouldn’t cost you more than 5 euros.
