About Barceloneta Beaches:

Before the 1992 olympics what is today the beach and littoral area of Barcelona was railway sidings and wasteland occupied by squatter settlements. The seafront of Barcelona was extensively redeveloped for the 1992 Olympics.

WARNING: All of the beaches in Barcelona suffer from pickpockets and bag thieves. So do not for one minute leave your belongings out of site nor fall asleep or you will wake up with no bag or wallet. Bag thieves operate with impunity on these beaches and will run off with your bag. If you want to go to a beach where this is not an issue I recommend Castelldefels Platja which is only 20 minutes on the train from the centre of Barcelona.
