The best beaches in Barcelona

In addition to being one of the most modern and artistic cities in Europe, Barcelona has several beaches that add a Mediterranean beauty to the city.

The main beach, at least the best known, is the Barceloneta beach, you can reach it in 20 minutes from the Hotel Negresco Princess, where you can enjoy the sea and the sand surrounded by people from all over the world. In this beach you can enjoy unforgettable experiences, artists of the city and quiet walks, in addition to the different concerts offered on this beach in Barcelona.

Beside the Barceloneta you will find other beaches and interesting places where you can enjoy delicious sea food in front of the beach, or different nightclubs facing the beach like Opium, Carpe Diem or Pacha among others.

On the other hand, if you prefer a more relaxed environment, you can get away from the crowds on the beach of Marbella and Nueva Marbella, located near the Hotel Barcelona Princess, where the atmosphere is quieter. In this beach it is possible to relax, to spend some hours of tranquility and even to practice some aquatic sport.

Also in front of this hotel in Barcelona, you have the option of using the artificial pools of the Forum, located 5 minutes from the Hotel Barcelona Princess, where you can swim or bathe in secluded spaces and with enough space, where you can swim more relaxed.

After a profitable beach day and to finish the journey, you can return to the hotel and take a last bath in one of our pools at the top floor where you can enjoy its incredible views.
