Nice waterfront area that plays host to a shopping mall,multiple restaurants, the aquarium, and an Imax. Should your schedule allow the area makes for a laid back half day or so of tourism (but I wouldn't make it a priority for short visits).

Good selection of shops and restaurants, so the girls can browse while the boys can grab a mcflurry in McDonald's and go see in the sun watching the comings and goings of the marina. The Port is an easy walk from la ramblas, so after that hustle and bustle you can get your head showered here!!

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
