This beach was the other side of the port to Barceloneta Beach. It was pretty clean and less touristy, but when we visited there were small gangs of un-delightful looking people hanging around the port wall.

Perfect for a quiet beach day. The vendors selling drinks, shawls, and massages on the beach can become a nuisance but other than that the water is crystal clear and glorious. We had a great time!

A very nice and clean beach. You can find many supermarkets in the area. You’ll need a towel and umbrella. They have sun beds and umbrellas for rent but they’re not cheap if you’re planning to go to the beach frequently it won’t be practical...More

This beach is certainly worth the walk as less people are around and less vendors trying to sell to the tourists.

We arrived at the beach late morning on a beautiful sunny Friday. There were a few people there, but still very quiet. There are lounge chairs and umbrellas available, but you have to pay to use them. There are also walking vendors selling very nice...More

We walked all the way from the W Hotel at Barcelonetta Beach down to this beach - it's a really long walk past several beaches. This beach is definitely less touristy than the other beaches back towards Barcelonetta, but it kind of lacks atmosphere compared...More

Nova Icaria and Bogatella beaches were sandy, clean and beautiful. Not crowded in the morning, but more so as the day progressed. Some restaurants to go have lunch and use the restrooms. Some topless women, but you won’t notice them unless you are trying to...More

Nice beach with fine sand and few volleyball courts. Very clean beach and water where you can relax for many hours. Bars are selling refreshments for reasonable prices.

A beautiful beach, with a great infrastructure. A small beah with shower, bathrooms, restaurants, a great view, clean water. Is less full of visitors than Barceloneta, and for me this was amazing. This beach deserves a visit

But we still preferred the long walk to the W hotel beach. A little quieter there. This is a busy active beach that I would have stayed at 25yrs ago. :)

Ciutadella / Vila Olimpica
The sounds of Marina Olympica's rocking boats and
clicking mastheads swaying to and fro set an
impressive backdrop for Ciutadella and Villa Olimpica.
Follow the aromas of garlic, wine, and fresh local
fish to the various restaurants running along the
marina. A grand bronze fish statue soaring high above
serves as a beacon to those searching for the renowned
Casino Barcelona or the extremely popular nightclubs
