Why is Bogatell One of the Best Barcelona Beaches?

The Bogatell area has much of the old Barcelona charm that most travelers wish to experience. There are small, narrow streets and cafes to explore in the El Poblenou quarter. In general, the area feels less hectic than other nearby neighborhoods.

The beach of Bogatell offers visitors a variety of activities. This is due in large part to Avenida Icaria, which intersects with the Bogatell area and extends to the Olympic Village.

Here you will find an assortment of options ranging from a supermarket and restaurants and more. If you want plenty to do, then check out all the possibilities at Avenida Icaria, as it also serves the entire area.

Barcelona Beaches Guide to Nova Icaria Beach and Mar Bella Beach

Joining Bogatell as both local and traveler favorites are Mar Bella Beach and Nova Icaria Beach. Both Mar Bella and Nova Icaria have much to offer. First, Nova Icaria Beach is near shopping, in particular, the Icaria shopping center, which also provides an English language cinema. This means that you can quickly pop in to see a film after a day at the beach. Nova Icaria is very well placed near the Olympic marina.

You can expect Nova Icaria Beach to remain favorite for many years to come as a wide range of activities exist in the area in addition to the beach. You can also expect a younger and hipper crowd when venturing to this beach.

Be ready; Mar Bella Beach has a section that is a nudist area. This area is somewhat blocked by a sizable dune and a surprising amount of bamboo and vegetation. Additionally, Mar Bella Beach is a favorite area for gays and lesbian beachgoers.

Of course, nudity is permitted on all beaches in Barcelona. So no matter where you may go, don't be surprised to see people sunning themselves in their "birthday suits."
