“Take a boat!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013

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.

“A perfect holiday destination”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2013

The perfect place to relax. Sea, yacht club, entertainment venues, shopping center, boat trips for those who want, seagulls - and generally a great atmosphere.

“Another Side of Barcelona”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 20, 2013

We spent an afternoon in this area. We got off at the hop-on / hop-off bus tour stop and strolled for a couple of hours. Lovely beach, very clean, felt very safe. Not as 'gritty' as other parts of Barcelona. It was our last day there, so it was a nice way to spend it - just chilling and going for a lovely lunch by the water. Highly recommend it.

“Great place for evening stroll”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2013

The Port Vell area of Barcelona is very picturesque and a great place for an afternoon stroll. The area is very lively at all times of the day with many seafood restaurants, the Sky Lift, the Mall of Spain and other attractions nearby.

Serene and colorful area to walk around in. Definitely worth a trip. A lot of the bike and scooter rental places are in this area, so its definitely worth it to check it out
