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.
Barcelona’s only clothing optional beach is at the northern end of Barcelona’s long seafront. One of the busiest beaches for gays and their friends. Very popular on weekends with locals, next to beach bar El Chiringuito de la Mar Bella.
This chiringuito offers food, drinks and cocktails, and on some evenings – notably on Sunday from 17:00 till 23:00 – also live DJs and chill-out music. A peaceful park good for a picnic or siesta under the trees in nearby. (Metro stop: Ciutadella Vila Olímpica; plus a 20-minute walk.)
