Somorrostro Beach

 Discover the beach of Barceloneta, near the Olympic Port of Barcelona
Somorrostro Beach. Author: Cristian Atudoroae (Barcelona Photos)
One of the most emblematic beaches of Barcelona, located between the Gas breakwater and the Marina Street, directly stuck to the Olympic Port. Behind stands the wonderful Barcelona Seaside Promenade (Passeig Marítim) which leads from Port Vell to the Poblenou neighborhood. Preferred both by locals, especially young people, as by foreign tourists this beach has a high occupancy rate, especially on public holidays.
The stretch of coastline known today as Somorrostro Beach belonged previously to the Barceloneta Beach. In November 2010 this beach has been renamed to pay tribute to the old homonymous shanty town, demolished in 1966.
The beach has a very central location and very accessible means of public transport. In the porches that delimit the Somorrostro Beach, in front of the Hospital of the Sea (Hospital del Mar), we found the Beach Center, an information and environmental education equipment offering from March to September activities for all ages and also free loan of books, press and sports equipment.
