Mar Bella Beach

This semi-urban beach on the coastal reaches of Barcelona is located between Bogatell and Nova Mar Bella beaches. Like its neighbouring areas of golden sand, Mar Bella Beach has a good number of public facilities, including toilets, showers, a children’s play area and beach volleyball courts.

On Passeig Marítim, the promenade that runs behind Mar Bella, visitors will also find table tennis tables, a range of bars and restaurants and a sports centre. The centre offers both sailing and kayak trips along this stretch of idyllic Mediterranean coastline.

At around 500 metres long by 40 metres wide, Mar Bella is a well-sized beach, although it is also relatively popular, meaning it always has a buzz. It is a particular favourite of younger people, since it lies close to a number of university faculty buildings, and also with nudists since there is a designated clothing optional section to it.

Mar Bella Beach is watched over by lifeguards, and is known as a haunt for windsurfers on windier days. It can be reached from just about anywhere in Barcelona by metro, stopping at Poblenou station on line 4, and walking for around 10 minutes.
