This area a the seafront in BCN has a lot of expencive boats. If you are interested in boats and ships this is the place. The ships were very impressiv. You may find other thing to enjoy in the area but from our point of view the shipa are the attractions.

Marina is a beautiful place to have a walk or run. It has big territory around it with restaurants parks and promenades. It is great to have a look at the yachts. Currently the most capatious yacht in the world is parked there (owned by a Russian oligarch Alisher Usmanov). Have a look at my Relonch pictures to get an... More

Walked along here on a sunny Sunday morning and very much enjoyed our time. Lovely sights of the city in the background, several mid sized boats and a couple of mega bucks ones too. Got busier throughout the morning, so head out early if you want a peacefull walk.

The boats were indeed beautiful under the sun. Shapes were different but luxury was everywhere. It was really a very nice port, close to the streets of the city and very enjoyable with Segway.

We strolled to the port from Passeig de Colom and across the timber planked steel bridge that spans the entrance to the marina, where a number of craft are moored. The bridge itself swings open to enable larger vessels to enter and leave the marina, and we were fortunate enough to be there when it opened to let out a... More

If you fancy getting away from the main city then popping down here is fun. Its more relaxed and on the weekend the locals are out enjoying a walk. There is a small market on the weekends selling food and gifts. Lots of restaurants including some very expensive ones. Don't forget to check out the super sized boats too!

It was clean and well maintained. The palm trees were amazingly beautiful and we really enjoyed watching the sunset from there! This summed up our trip to be so memorable! There were quite a lot of ships, from small pleasure crafts to large and luxurious yachts. You can't miss this! It was excellent!
