Sant Sebastià Beach

Noted for its modern tower and integrated cable car station (for trips up to Mount Monjuic), Sant Sebastià Beach lies in the Cuitat Vella district of Barcelona immediately along the coast from Sant Miquel Beach. One of the city’s oldest and best loved beaches, Sant Sebastià comprises biscuit-coloured sands that continue for around a kilometre in length and average widths of 80 metres.

Sant Sebastia is well equipped with facilities, with both a sports area, and a famous sports club on its doorstep that offers everything from indoor swimming pools to table tennis. However, even those with reduced mobility are able to enjoy the waters of the Mediterranean here, thanks to level walkways leading directly to it, adapted changing rooms, amphibious wheelchairs, and a team of volunteers who help to get those in need in and out of the water safely.

The beach also offers its users showers and public toilets, as well as hosting refreshment and ice cream stalls. It flies a Blue Flag to demonstrate a recognition of its standards.

Sant Sebastià is predominantly visited by residents of Barcelona, with an average age in the mid-thirties. Nudists are also welcome, thanks to a dedicated area for naturists, while the beach is easy to reach whether travelling by car, bus, or metro.
