“Very nice beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

Nice, wide and very long beach, where everyone tries to catch some sunshine. It wasn't too packed, but we've been there in April. I can imagine it gets very crowded in the summer holidays.

“Too much crowd...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

For being a city beach and an artificial one it is all right. Beware of the ever present pickpockets.

“Spend a Day at the BEACH!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

On our last day visiting Barcelona....we decided to take a lazy morning off and visit the beach. Well ....7 hours later we called it a day! What a great experience! There were many peddlers on the beach ...but not "annoying". Selling everything from sun glasses, towels, massages, tattoos, food, drinks, you name it! We rented an umbrella and some chairs (a must) and watched the constant activity. You will not be disappointed.
P.S. We also purchased a foot massage (SO WORTH IT!!!) and some refreshing coconuts!

“Crowded but nice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

Definitely a fair amount of people there but we still enjoyed it, a nice beach. Surrounded by restaurants and bars and when we were there even though it was winter there were all these buskers who'd made the most amazing sand castles - if you can even call them that, they were more like sand sculptures. Even if it's not really beach weather a nice area to just walk around in.

“Wonderful beach. Clean, with lots of activity for all.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013

Restaurants, bars, showers on beach. Playgrounds, But the water gets deep very quickly so be aware with very small children.
