The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Poblenou
The futuristic Agbar Tower stands out from Barcelona's skyline in Poblenou. It is no coincidence then that this area of town is the newly crowned technological park of the city, its own mini Silicon Valley containing a tech incubator (Barcelona Activa) as well as a host of local and international high tech companies. To accommodate the onrush of new residents and workers, the area of Poblenou has seen a surge of activity in new high-rise residential buildings and two top-notch shopping centres catering to everyone's need. The ambiance of this area is calmer than the city center and the beautifully relaxing Bogatell Beach, popular with locals, is just a handful of blocks away.

    A magical event and it was FREE
    I attended the free Orchestra on the beach and it was amazing. Sound was perfect, ambient and we were all in awe listening to the band. It’s free organised events like this that introduce people to new genre of music and they go to paid events later. Good work Barcelona!!!!

    Beach further along the waterfront worth travelling for
    Well worth the extra 20 minutes on the bus to get to this beach. *much* nicer than Barceloneta, quieter (though still busy) and much cleaner. One end is nudist but only in a fairly moderate kind of way.

    Bogatell Beach in Barcelona is a fantastic spot for beachgoers seeking a lively yet relaxed atmosphere.
    This beautiful stretch of sand offers clear waters and plenty of space to unwind or enjoy beach activities. The promenade is lined with charming cafes and restaurants, providing the perfect backdrop for a delightful meal or drink. It's a great place for families, friends, and solo travelers to soak up the sun, play volleyball, or simply enjoy the vibrant Mediterranean vibe. With clean facilities and stunning views, Bogatell Beach is a must-visit for anyone looking to enjoy Barcelona's coastal charm.

    Excellent City Beach
    I read that this is one of the best beaches in Barcelona, and it didn't disappoint. Relaxed atmosphere, clean, and excellent service from the nearby Bo Kaap restaurant. It takes a little more effort to get to than the beaches closer in town such as Barceloneta, but it's well worth it.

Loved this beach, it was such a chilled vibe and felt very safe. There wasnt anyone pushing to sell stuff like on some other beaches. The sea was beautiful and clear, there was a volleyball area and a lot of locals which was lovely. Also plenty of food and drink options around.

If you are looking for a good beach to go to in Barcelona, this is the one for you. My mother and I spent most of our first day here at this beautiful beach. I love how you can rent beach chairs and there is a couple restaurants nearby.

Whenever possible I like to have a "beach day" during travel when there is no schedule for part of the day. This was a great beach but crowded. It was a nice walk down the Las Ramblas del Pobleneu from my hotel.

Better than Barceloneta beach as it is slightly further away from the tourist area although not by much.

The restaurants with views of the beach in Bogatell are much better than in Barceloneta and the beach is cleaner.

If you want to go to a beach in BCN, the further you go from Barceloneta the better - if you still want to go to a city beach, Selva de Mar is even more local than Bogatell and only a couple of metro stops further from the centre than chaotic, touristy and expensive Barceloneta

Having lived in a beach community for several years, I know a great beach when I see it. Simply put, Bogatel Beach is clean, has very clean sea water, has plenty of space for soaking up the sun or playing around doing beach activities. This beach is especially popular among Mediterranean Sea lovers, as the water is beautiful, and there is so much to do at the beach as well as nearby. If you love beaches, this is a must-do in Barcelona!

Filthy, plastic bags, bandage plasters, detritus etc.. in the water, stung a couple of times by the local jellyfish, sharp rocks underwater in the beach shallows that you cant see because the water is also filthy. Wouldnt be surprised if the water quality was ‘hazardous’ as the nearby part of town honks like a medieval sewer. Broken glass everywhere. Over the tanoy the lifeguard is shouting, keep an eye on your bags as they are likely to be stolen. Gave it a star for the ‘surviving a life experience’ aspect.
