Barcelona Beaches: Sant Sebastià Beach
The Sant Sebastià Beach is one of the longest beaches in Barcelona and the nearest to the city, with just over a one kilometre stretch of golden sand.
Apart from the Barceloneta Beach
it is the oldest and most traditional beach in Barcelona, boasting many watersports
clubs and is popular with both locals, particularly the inhabitants of the Ciutat Vella (old city district
) and tourists.
Various “chiringuitos” (beach cafés) line the seafront, an ideal place for lunch or a drink.
The beach also provides excellent facilities for people with disabilities, such as easily accessible parking areas, wooden walkways down to the seashore and adapted toilets and showers.
Parasols and deckchairs can also be hired and the beach has WiFi connection.
Check out one of Barcelona’s most modern buildings “el vela” at the end of the seafront, an amazing mirror-clad construction reflecting the sky and sea and housing restaurants
and a hotel
, whilst boasting fantastic views of the beach.
This spectacular beach can be easily reached by public transport with a metro
stop and bus lines connecting directly to the city centre.
