Our first time in Spain in July 2016. All beaches were overly crowded. We came to see the nudist but didn't see any, only the usual topless beach goers. It was hot and we were tourist so we didn't have any beach towels or anything. Restaurants are packed. The water so blue and beautiful. I bet it's much better off... More

There are many beaches in Barcelona and all are comparable. To their credit Barcelona has set aside one of those beaches for naturists. The beach is relatively screened from non nudist by-passers and is clearly designated with many signs noting it is a nudist beach. On maps of Barcelona beaches it is also clearly noted as a nudist beach. So... More

I believe this is the one below the skate park. If I have it wrong I apologize, did not see any signs to confirm. We walked over to Mar Bella after spending time on Bogatel? on the south side of Mar Bella, because from the pier I saw a shower in the distance. As we were walking towards the showers... More

Beach is nice and clean, water is lovely and blue, there are little huts that provide food and refreshments and you can hire a beach umbrella for about 8 euro for the day. (deck chairs also available at an extra cost) On some parts of the beach, there are slides and climbing frames which is nice for the children. There... More

Several posts suggest the nude beach and gay area is at NOVA MAR. IT IS NOT. It is immediately next to Nova Mar at Mar Bella beach. Walk down to the beach and go to the far right towards the W Hotel. There is a dining bar at the middle of the beach called BE GAY. This is where the... More

We enjoyed this beach as it was a short walk from our apartment. The sand is fairly coarse so it rubs off easily, the sea shore gets deep pretty quickly so maybe not great for little ones. Of course you get the people trying to sell you towels, massages and Aqua, beer etc but that's pretty standard. Good facilities like... More
