Barcelona’s seaside essence with entertainment, relaxation, and lots of culture.
Metro: L4 (Yellow) - Barceloneta
In Barcelona, entertainment can mean a whole host of things: sports, cultural events, fine dining, great shopping, and thrilling performances. That’s because Barcelona’s waterfront is lined end to end with great things to do. Those who enjoy long strolls are in for a treat, with a coastline that readily displays daring artistic works and architectural gems, as well as museums not too far away. Sculptures like “David and Goliath” and “Marco” in the Plaza dels Voluntaris Olímpics, “Estel Ferit” or Frank Gehry’s “Fish” in Barceloneta, or “La Gamba de Mariscal,” a giant prawn at the Old Port are just some examples of the fine art and astounding sculptures you’ll find on your seaside stroll. And quite nearby you’ll also find iconic city monuments like the Clock Tower and the Columbus Monument, not to mention amazing museums like the Blue Museum or the Museum of Catalan History.
This part of the city is also a favorite stomping ground for runners, joggers, and other athletes. Getting in some miles while taking in the refreshing sea breeze is great for beating the heat in the summer, and a joy throughout the rest of the year, when the coastline seems to beckon for attention. Between the Forum and the Columbus monument, you have a gorgeous 4-mile trek on which to run, jog, or sprint, all while taking in the landscape. And even though the space is very well frequented, its generous scope and wide dimensions ensure that there’s plenty of room for everybody.
On summer nights, the seaside experience rises to a level of purely unforgettable, thanks to spaces like the Casino Terrace, where you can find an extensive cocktail menu and premium deals to enjoy while you relax to the soothing sounds of the waves.
