Barcelona is one of the few major European cities that combine the big city attractions with the ability to lay on a gay beach. Barcelona beaches are cleans and diverse, with all ages and orientations enjoying them year round.
During the hotter months of the year, you can spend some time cooling down in the sunny Barceloneta area. Hit the beach and soak up the sun or enjoy a couple of cervezas in true Spanish style! If you are coming to Barcelona outside the summer months, you can still visit this laid-back part of the city as it has some fantastic seafood restaurants as well as many bars and cafés lining the beach. This beach eventually becomes San Sebastian Beach. (Metro stop: Barceloneta)
