In the summer, this is by far the place to be. The beach of Barcelona attracts people from all over the world. It extends for many miles around the coastline starting from the 5-star hotel W-Hotel to the area of Bogatell and Vila Olimpica. All of the surrounding areas are very famous for their cozy authentic feel. The small streets with high buildings give you the authentic Spanish feeling while you are making your way to the warm sand. The boulevard along the beach invites you to taste the typical cuisine of the Spanish culture with dishes like paella and many different sorts of seafood. On the other side of the beach, many popular nightclubs can be found like Opium, Sotavento and Shoko. These clubs attract both locals and tourists looking to dance the night away until the sun rises. Also, in this area the Olympic village was built in honor of the 1992 Olympic Games that were held in the city of Barcelona. The combination of the summer weather and authentic Spanish houses and lifestyle make the beach side of Barcelona a pleasure to stay in and will surely make you come back in the future.
