Fantastic Beach
Aug 2021 • Friends
Playa de la Mae Bella didn’t disappoint. Went mid-afternoon so the sun was shining and the water was warm. Definitely a nude beach, but after 5 minutes of being there my party decided to strip down too. A good mix of clothed and non-clothed locals and tourist. The beach was a bit crowded since it seems smaller, yet there was still plenary of room to lay out.

Nice beach - be aware it’s nudey

My wife and I came here without knowing it was a naturist beach. It’s a really nice clean sandy beach with some racks you can lean against if you want some shelter. It only took us a few mins to realise it was a naturist beach for obvious reasons. We were about the only ones clothed. If you’re open minded and it’s not busy it’s a real nice beach. Some naked guys were getting a bit friendly with each other in view of everyone so if you can turn a blind eye you’ll be fine. If not, definitely go to the beach up the road 5 minute away.

Nice to walk by

It was a cool 16deg so maybe not the best day for a beach visit. That being said it was nice to walk on the promenade. Saw a few cafes too.
Clean beach chilled vibes enjoyed the sunset too.

Beautiful Beach
Aug 2019
We took the metro from the city out to this gay friendly beach. It was about a 15 minute walk form the metro. The sand was very clean and the water warm but still refreshing. We decided to walk back into La Barceloneta. It was a good 45 - 1 hour walk but the board walk is beautiful.

They seem to be adding sand at the moment so very restricted access. Probably very nice when not restricted.

Sandy Naturist Beach
Oct 2018
There are signs and maps along the promenade so when you see the sign for this beach take the short path to the beach and the rest is up to you. A sandy cove at one end, a narrow slightly shingle bit in the middle and a wider sandy area at the North East end.

Beautiful Clothing-Optional Beach, Great mix of people--all friendly
Aug 2018 • Solo
Spent a wonderful day at this beautiful beach, Warm, smooth water, hot sand (it's August, after all!) and all types of people mixed together--all shapes and sizes, ages, suited up, unsuited (nude or partially nude), singles, couples, families, gays, straight, newbies, tourists,and regulars...all smiling,enjoying the freedom and joys of the sun and water. Total relaxation. Ahh, can life be any better?? I took a taxi from the historic old city center, for about 10 euros. Snacks and drinks available from roaming vendors as well as at food stands. Restrooms and outdoor showers near the beach. Lots of room (it was a Monday) if you want to spread out, or be closer to others if that is your preference. Everyone is friendly and respectful. Ahh, can life be any better??

Great beach, not crowded
Jul 2018 • Family
A bit further away from the first main beach in Barcelona, the Mar Bella beach is less busy and really nice. There is a real mixture of people, everything from 2-3 generation families to gay couples, and a mixture of naked and swimming gear clad people. Everything goes here, and it’s all very comfortable and easy going. I think only one part of the beach is nudist, but even there, some people have swimming gear on. A very relaxed atmosphere, and a very good mixture of people, to celebrate diversity and tolerance.

Nice beach but split into family part and nude beach
Jul 2018 • Family
A very nice beach with very nice beach bars for snacks and drinks.
The area right behind the cars parking lot is the family beach area. The beach on the right also Mar Bella beach is more of a nude area.
Definitely we liked the family beach at Mar Bella more than Barceloneta beach.
