Barceloneta is next to the beach, and in fact it is built on land reclaimed from the sea. Once this was the fisherman’s district and is now a very popular area due to its proximity to the sea. So if you are a sun worshipper and beach lover then this is one of Barcelona’s best areas to look for a Barcelona beach apartment.
Part to the Ciutat Vella (Old Town), Barceloneta is right next to the old town and ten minutes walk from the foot of Las Ramblas. It is some 20-25 minutes by public transport from Plaça Catalunya, is right next to the Port Vell (Old Port) and just 5 minutes walk from the hip Born district where you can enjoy nightlife, restaurants and cool shops.
Being next to the sea and the former fisherman’s quarter makes Barceloneta a great place for seafood lovers, it offers a range of seafood options to suit all budgets, but the quality is always good regardless.
