We arrived there with a group in time despite that all food was served cold. Waiters do not speak English and not helpful at all. The glory of the dinner was the black paella which was pasta in a black salty sauce.

Originally a fisherman’s quarter, this quaint area
can’t escape its small village feel: laundry hanging
over the narrow streets, old ladies clamoring at each
other from their balconies and elder gentlemen playing
games on short wooden benches gossiping the day away,
Barceloneta could double as a film set. Artists line
the boardwalk displaying their magnificently detailed
sand structures making this the most visited beach in
