So photogenic a especially at night. Make sure to visit this around sunset to evening when the lights go on. The design and the lighting makes for great photos.
The port is beautiful. You can walk or cycle throughout the port until you reach the beach. You can also take a boat cruise. There are plenty of bars and restaurant but I don't recommend eating there as everything is overpriced and you can find much better food at the nearby Rambla or gotic quarter.
we went there recently and loved just to sit and watch life go by in barcelona, plenty of bars and shops in the shopping area but we just wandered and looked about

We strolled along the promenade and walked the full length of this area on a magical autumn sunny day. Take a picnic or grab an ice-cream, this is a pleasurable place to be. The marina is lovely and if you sit and watch the boats go through the opening bridge out into the sea, you will see a great piece... More
Yeah, take a boat trip around the aquatory of the port or just get some rest on the pier under the sun of Barcelona. You can see an amazing view of the city's embankment from the water side. There are plenty of shops and cafes at the port terminal.
