    Nice city beach. Very packed with beachgoers. Sand is more gravely than fine sand you find in the Caribbean or Florida..

    no one should miss the beautiful morning sunrise in this beautiful beach. A long walk on the beach will relax you.

    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.

    This is the most famous beach in Barcelona. It is very crowded. This beach is located at the end of the famous La Rambla street. This is the best place if you would like to get acquainted with the ordinary life and entertainment of the people of Barcelona.

    Quite a nice beach even in winters, having water cleaning facility, sand is thick, drys off quickly. Lot of food places near by.

    During our exploration of the Barcelona waterfront, my wife and I enjoyed spending part of an afternoon strolling along Somorrostro Beach. While all of the beaches were full of activity, it appeared that Somorrostro was a bit less crowded and was very clean. Even in September, it was a perfect day at the beach for all of the visitors whether in the water or just have fun in the sand.

    Nice city beach, close to the town to walk, run or just chill out. Good choice of restaurant can be found around.

    We went to the beach to spend the day there and get into the water. We read on the reviews to watch out for thieves waiting to take your things if you’re not watching them. We didn’t realize how many people are actually pacing back and forth looking to see what you have and wait for you to leave your stuff unattended. After watching them for several hours, we figured out that they have these blankets they are selling, but it’s actually their flag to signal other people working with them that items are left unattended. They open the blanket like presenting it, but its marking their location and another individual that sells water or beer will go check it out and get real close to the items and see if he could take them. They also sell bottle water for 5 euros which is ridiculous so if you want a bigger and cheaper water, go into the restaurant. The beach itself and water were great, but having to constantly worry about these thieves takes the relaxation away from the beach. They did scatter like roaches when the police came by, but come back out when they left. I think if they had police constantly or stationed there, the beach could be really wonderful. Oh it is legal for women to go topless so just a FYI.
