There are options for everyone, what they all have in common is they are located by the sea. From April to November the bars offer us good moments of relaxation, leisure and fun on the beach, it is one of the reasons why the summer in Barcelona is so nice.
In most beach bars the food is more casual than what you’ll find in a restaurant, tapas, sandwiches, elaborated salads, although there are some that ultimately make dishes that have nothing to envy. The price is not cheap, it is a bit more expensive than in the center of the city but it really worth because their locations are unique.
Most are equipped with deck chairs and umbrellas for you to spend a day in a unique setting, in a relaxed atmosphere with good music.
