In recent years beach apartments have become an increasingly popular choice with holidaymakers. Proximity to the sea plus the warm sunshine of oceans such as the  Mediterannean, Carribean or Pacific make a beach apartment the perfect choice for relaxing by the sea with the convenience of having your accommodation just a short walk away, the sea on your door step and accessible at any time of day. Needless to say they are a wonderful option for families with children who wish to enjoy the sea and play in the sand.

One of the many great features of Barcelona as a holiday destination is the abundance of  Barcelona beach apartments next to the cities 6 kilometers of sandy beaches.When planning a vacation by the beach many people traditionally do not think to look in a large city such as Barcelona, but in fact Barcelona truly offers the best of both worlds. As well as being a thriving cosmopolitan city offering great food, restaurants, design, culture, museums, nightlife, shopping, architecture and anything your heart desires, Barcelona has beautiful sandy beaches to boot. Who says you can’t have your cake and eat it?

Most of the beach apartments in Barcelona are located in either Barceloneta in the Old Town, or else in the Poblenou district. One thing to highlight is that by booking a beach apartment in Barcelona you will not be relegating yourself to a far flung neighbourhood on the edge of town with no public transport and a long trip to the center – Poblenou metro station takes you directly to the historical center in 10 minutes. If you stay in the Barceloneta you can access the center by foot in about ten minutes.

Staying by the beach in Barcelona makes for a wonderful holiday. Sandy beaches, clean clear water and shaded beach bars are the perfect recipe for relaxation and enjoying the Mediterranean climate and the laid back way of life of Barcelona.
