    Well worth a visit just bear in mind there is a lot of walking and steps to navigate. Went on Wednesday and although read about the queues was really surprised to see no waiting in line at the entrance. Very interesting place to visit. Easily spend 2-3 wondering around. Some beautiful architecture to see. Would definitely recommend

    Lovely park to wander around and have lunch in. There are boats on the pond you can go in and some very interesting monuments and cool info about Gaudi and his participation in the parl creation.

    Great park on Montjuic. I think the nicest way to get up here is to take the underground to Parallel station and then the funiclar (with the same ticket) up to the station where you take the cable car. Then you can walk around the park and enjoy the views and also go visit the castle as well.

    So look, here's the deal. It's very busy here, even in October as it's often still over 20c.
    As many will say, it's also an urban dwellers beach where people come to pose, be seen, exercise, swim, sunbathe, eat, drink and be merry...and generally get away from city life even though it's just 15-20 minutes on a bus or tram to be back in the thick of central Barcelona.
    One thing I really liked about Barceloneta, more so than the beach itself which is vast (and needs to be for a city with 3 million+ people excluding tourists), is the fact that you really do feel like you've left the main part of the city and entered a seaside resort when you come here. Yes, it's busier and not nearly as relaxed as some coastal resorts, but it's still got a decent vibe and I quite liked it.
    Plenty of places to eat and drink, in semi off-peak season (early October) it was still busy but felt like it was a more pleasant pace and like there was more space and friendliness in the air.
    I wouldn't say this would be a beach of choice for me, but the area as a whole is a nice escape from the continuous craziness of Barcelona itself and the fact it's so easy to get to from the centre of Barcelona is a real bonus and this is why so many people love this city as it's on the coast and has beaches...albeit I still prefer Madrid!
    Then again, I prefer the smaller cities in Spain to Madrid, so that's irrelevant!

    Awesome with the kids. About 4 hrs of enjoyment. Great displays. Shark display, in particular, was brilliant. Currently bits are under renovation.

    Very poor sized enclosures for some.
    Animal husbandry lacking.
    Every other exhibit had animals missing.
    No cafe facilities available.
    Play park cordoned off.
    Possibly all down to the timw of year but that ahould be explained before entry or a reduced price offered .
    Disappointing 😕.

    The park is quite easy to get to on the metro. About a 10 min walk from Mundet on L3 the green line. The park is pretty with a lot of shade. The highlight is the Labyrinth. It is the real deal. We did the maze when the park opened up at 10 am. It was pretty confusing getting to the center and even worse trying to find our way out. Some of the maze has been replanted in the last year or two which made it a bit easier. Don’t do this if you are claustrophobic.

    This port is easy to navigate. We got a taxi from our city centre hotel and it brought us just to where you embark. From there it’s well signposted. Embarking is similar. Lots of taxis available.

    Loved this beach, it was such a chilled vibe and felt very safe. There wasnt anyone pushing to sell stuff like on some other beaches. The sea was beautiful and clear, there was a volleyball area and a lot of locals which was lovely. Also plenty of food and drink options around.

    This beach was quite a walk away from Barceloneta, but the further you get the quiet the beaches. Not as many facilities as closer to the main part of the city, but bring drinks and hope you don’t need the toilet!

    Access to the gardens is free of charge.
    Even in January it was worth to pass by in order to check the different cactus in this garden.
    There is also huge collection of cacti (about 800 different types) originating in many different continents and countries.
    Notable specimens found in these gardens include: aloe (Aloe ferox) from South Africa; Hudson pears Cylindropuntia rosea from Mexico; Xanthorrhoea from Australia; Euphorbia resinifera from Morocco; large-sized Cereus jamacaru from Brazil.
    The gardens offer an extensive collection of cacti from the Echinopsis genus, including Echinopsis santiaguensis, which are native to South America (Argentina, Chile, Ecuador, Bolivia, Brazil, Uruguay and Paraguay).
    The park owes its name to the renowned Mallorcan poet Miquel Costa i Llobera.

    Park de Cervantes is a medium size park in the city. Wonderful park to relax (it really quiet and not overcrowded), sit down on a bench under the pergola or shade of the trees and let zen come to you. The park has plants shrubberies surrounded by green hedges, trees, bushes, plants and lots of different roses. It's delighting for your eyes as well as for your nose

    We went to Mar Bella beach on consecutive 2 days midweek in July and had two contrasting naturist experiences.
    The naturist section of the beach is small and occupies the sections numbered 30 to 32.
    The nearest metro stations are Poblenou and Selva de Mar, both about 15 minutes walk away.
    On the first day we rented 2 sunbeds and an umbrella in front of the BeGay bar at a cost of 45 Euros. I found this to be very expensive and then was told we could not eat or drink our own food and drink (besides water) whilst seated in front of the bar! The bar itself pumped out techno music the whole day which meant you couldn't really relax. The majority of the people sunbathing around the bar area wore a swim suit (must have been around 95% clothed). I think I was the only naked person using a sunbed and there were no naked people in the bar. Not a great naturist experience to be surrounded by mainly clothed people on a naturist beach.
    The next day we brought our own umbrella and sunbathed on a different part of the beach (at the Poblenou end). This was a much better naturist experience and there was a more even number of naked and clothed people. There was a good mixture of male and female people on this part of the beach. It was encouraging to see so many young women feeling safe enough to naked on a beach. We couldn't hear the music from the bar which meant I was able to relax and read in peace.
    In conclusion I recommend going to this naturist beach as there is a mixture of male and females and it has a young age group giving it a lively vibe. I would avoid the area around the BeGay bar unless you are into techno music and don't mind paying over the odds for a sunbed and umbrella. As a naturist be prepared to be in the minority in certain parts of the beach and certain areas have more men than women.
    I would also recommend visiting the Rambla de Poblenou, near Poblenou metro, for great bars and restaurants (much nicer area than La Rambla in the centre of town).

    We stayed here in an Airbnb, perfectly located to visit Barcelona. The ‘park’ is wonderful and has some wonderful views all the way down to the coast.

    One of the most famous beaches in Barcelona.

    I found it to be very crowded but i guess that’s expected when a beach is so close to a large city.

    It’s at the end of the Rambla so that adds to the attraction feature .
