We visited Barceloneta twice during our visit.
The weather was always sunny and warm, so the beach was full of people (but not overly crowded) relaxing, sunbathing playing beach volleyball and soccer. It was lovely!
The water was still cold, so there was only about 3 or 4 people in the water. The water was very clean and clear, regarding the fact that this is a sandy beach, and that there is a dock nearby.
We loved the fact that there were so many volleyball and soccer playgrounds on the beach, and that every once in a while there was a free public toilet.
There are also showers, so you can wash off the sand on your feet. There are also some bars.
Barceloneta is a lovely place to relax, we loved it! The only downsides were:
- the fact, that there is no shade (it must be extremely hot in the summer with nowhere to hide),
- there was a couple of sellers bothering us (asian woman offering massages, people bothering you if you want to buy beer etc.), but to be honest, we expected more of those. And they went away pretty quickly, so that's a plus.
- the beach is not for you, if you hate sandy beaches. But there is a path next to it (I think it's wooden?), so you can still stroll by without having to step on the sand.
