Nova Mar Bella Beach
Backed by modern high-rise apartment buildings, Nova Mar Bella beach was part of a larger regeneration scheme that coincided with the 1992 Barcelona Olympics and aimed (successfully) to reunite city and coastline.
Though a man made construction, Nova Mar Bella still has a lot going for it. For one thing, it is a slightly more tranquil experience than other nearby beaches, and has managed to maintain its local vibe, appealing to both residents and visitors as a result. Nova Mar Bella also proudly flies the Blue Flag – a clear sign of the quality of the beach and its Mediterranean waters.
Not to be confused with Mar Bella, from which it is separated by the Bac de Roda breakwater, Nova Mar Bella is approximately 400 metres long, and around 40 metres wide. In addition to showers and toilets, and sun loungers and parasols that can be rented by the day, it also has access via ramps, and amphibious wheelchairs, allowing as many people as possible to enjoy the surrounds.
When it comes to sport, Nova Mar Bella has beach volleyball courts for use, while a couple of chiringuitos serving drinks and snacks prevent the need to leave the beach for a single moment.
