Barceloneta's Beach is located in the Barceloneta area, in the district of Ciutat Vella, close to Sant Sebastia beach. It has about 1100 metres in length and is one of the largest, best situated and best known beaches in Barcelona. It is also by far the most crowded beach of the city and is visited daily by thousands of tourists from all around the world. It is readily available to the public transport.
In the central part of the beach, there is a place called the Beach Centre which is dedicated to revitalizing the coastline of Barcelona. It provides touristic information about how various facilities on the beach operate, what different types of flags symbolize, what is the current condition of the sea, and other useful information. In the Beach Centre, one can also find the Beach Library, which offers a free book borrowing service. Although the Centre functions throughout the entire year, it is during the period between June and September, when the beach is teeming with life, that it is most active.
It is noteworthy that Barceloneta's Beach is the main place of the celebration of the National Day of Saint Joan ("Diada de Sant Jordi" in Spanish), one of the most important holidays in Catalonia. The festival takes place during the shortest night of the year, on June 23, and it involves the traditional cake called 'Coca de Sant Joan' and fireworks.

||a beach only for the party||Probably the worst place to visit in Barcelona in search of sun and suntan. It is overcrowded and full of annoying people selling beers ('cerveca, beer, cola amigo'), tatoos ('tatoo quieres?'), massages ('masaje, massage?'), melons and of course pickpockets. With average frequency: 1 'voice' per 2 m...||2011-07-26 23:28:04|
||be4 party :)||Plaża jest fajna, co prawda trochę zanieczyszczona, ale nie rzuca sie to w oczy. Gooodny piaseczek no i woda też jest niesamowita! I bardzo dużo miejsc w około gdzie można coś zjeść. Poza tym jak wam się znudzi to obok jest fajny deptak, którym można dojść do wielu pubów czy clubów jeżeli doczekacie...||2011-07-27 18:54:24|
||Barceloneta||Barcelona es un lugar precioso, pero su playa es muy artificial. Arena sucia, vendedores por todas partes. Recomiendo las playas de Portugal.||2013-05-04 00:41:30|
