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. :)

The beach itself was great and we really enjoyed Xiroi, the beach bar on the boardwalk. We had a great week at this beach, living in MarBella, until the last day when my daughters backpack was stolen. Literally happened 15 ft away while we were...More

Don't settle for barceloneta beach and make the effort to walk a bit further or take the metro to Ciutadella Vila olympica from which nova icaria is a 15 min walk because Nova Icaria beach has much softer and finer sand, less rubbish, less crowded...More

From reading the reviews we knew that this beach would be crowded and dirty, but we were too tired to walk to the further beaches. It is a long walk so take a cab or rent a bike to get to the other beaches. Luckily...More

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
