This area reminded me of the Esplanade in St. Kilda, Victoria, Australia - when the sunshine comes out so do the people. Lots of activity in the area, places to eat and beautiful beaches. Bit on the cool side for me to put my toe in the water, but plenty of sun lovers on the beach area despite the slightly... More

Loads of boardwalk character, a great deal of activity, and a fun little shopping center with some fast-food and not-so-fast-food establishments, as well as various other shops, etc. There's a lot to see and do here and there are a few attractions, like the jumping bungee cord cage. While we were there, a big ferry came in and it was... More

I visited Port Vell in June 2014, and it is really a beautiful area to visit. It's right after famous La Rambla Street which end with Barcelona column (and Colombus is on the top). It's a clean and relaxing port, with restaurants and cafes, a shopping mall, and also it is close to Barcelona Aquarium. Also, you can enjoy mini... More

The entire harbor and Port Vell area is nice to walk around. There is a big mall (MareMagnum) there with some good restaurants as well. Also, the bathroom in the mall is free and clean! Walk toward the beach from the harbor and you will see plenty of large and fun art installments. Port Vell is where you can ride... More

The Port Vell area is a good place to walk around and enjoy the sun, scenery, boats and the water. You can hire or go on a boat trip from here. The restaurants in the port sell very good seafood, however this is a touristy trap area where you will be paying top dollar for not necessarily the best food... More

Little more than an expensive water front MALL. Yes it would be cooler at night down by the sea but I honestly preferred Cardiff!! People said there were lots of restaurants to go to but if you fancy sitting in a shopping mall to eat - great. Getting a water front table could be hard in the height of the... More

The port was a lovely walk to do in the evening, there were a lot of restaurants and shops and the scenery was lovely. There is a bridge that moves when boats need to pass and is of a lovely construction. The walk is a nice way to relax in the evening
