It can all be a little overwhelming, the city may not be huge but the culture, activities, events, eateries etc. is vast. So we have taken it upon ourselves to amalgamate our local 12 years experience in the city via our blog. Whether you are planning on coming over for the festivals, want to find out vegan eats or general insider information, we will keep you in the loop.
Barcelona beaches – Ocata
Sure there’s Barcelona’s Barceloneta beach but when you feel like venturing a little further out we suggest you head over to Ocata. It is approximately 20 minutes away from Plaça Catalunya and is long stretch of golden sandy beach. Unlike the city beach, you can find a nice little space to relax, and you’re more likely to find yourself surrounded by locals. Ocata is quiet, pristine and very flat, with plenty of space.
Not only is it wider but it’s also cleaner, win / win. Home to rugby and volleyball tournaments this is one of the widest beaches, with fairly white sand and clean water. Fancy a drink? You’ll find a nice line of chiringuitos (beach side huts), that serve tasty tapas in addition to local wine and beer. It offers several handy facilities such as toilets, showers, hammock rental and disabled access.
