To the happy crowd spending the month of August in Barcelona, I suggest strolling down the beach between the Barceloneta and the Port Olimpic.
Sunny days are back, and people like strolling along the beaches of Barcelona. During the warmer months, ephemeral bars and restaurants built directly on the sand are full all throughout the day. Here is a screen which hides the utility room of one of these businesses.
Here is a picture of the Bogatell beach at the end of the day when all the tourists are gone. It is much more pleasant than at 12 noon!
There are so many people on the beaches of Barcelona right now that at times I wish we were back in winter when there is virtually no one on the sand.
Barcelona is situated in a privileged location. Its coastline is a succession of harbors and beaches. Here we can see the beach of Bogatell.
Beach cafes have reopened, and tourists try to find some time in their busy schedule to take a dip in the big blue. From Badalona to La Barceloneta runs a string of “chiringuitos” which offer just the drink and the background music you want.
