THE BEST BARCELONA BEACH HOTELS FOR YOUR STAY
Exiting your beach hotel and plunging in the Mediterranean Sea after a long day touring the city. Doesn’t it sound great?
Barcelona is hot and humid in the summer. You are back in your hotel room and nothing feels better than a cold shower… But wait a minute! Are you sure? Wouldn’t it be better to have the beach at your feet?
True, Barcelona isn’t known as a beach destination: it’s more about its architecture, art, food and shopping. But we do have a really nice Barcelona beach area. And while locals would rather go out of town for a whole day in the seaside, we do use our urban beaches during our short breaks and free afternoons.
These are our favorite beachfront hotels in Barcelona:
Arts Ritz Carlton *****GL
One of my favorite Barcelona luxury hotels on the beach for the summer: needing taxis or subway rides to get to the city center doesn’t sound so bad when you have the beach so close! Plus in the summer it’s great to dine in one of those restaurants by the water. With the moon, and the waves, and the palm trees… And then step in one of the fancy nightclubs next door. Book it here.
Pullman Barcelona Skipper *****
W Hotel *****GL
I must say I was reluctant to recommend this one… Yes, it’s super trendy, it has an awesome and exclusive drink bar and amazing views. One would say it’d be one of the best Barcelona spa hotels near beach… Why wouldn’t I recommend it? The truth is that it’s a beach that is partially naked and gay-friendly.
54 Barceloneta ***
Instead, if you prefer to be closer to the center, this beach hotel offers you a good location at a cheap choice. You’ll be a couple of blocks from the beach and you’ll also get a feel of the local life of the fishermen district, have local bars and paella restaurants nearby and be walking distance from the Old Town. Don’t miss it’s roof terrace! Book it here.
