Why choose an apartment near the beach in Barcelona?

You’ve booked your tickets, so now you might be wondering: where is the best place to stay in Barcelona? Unlike a lot of cities, the real buzz in Barcelona is not only in the city centre, but also by its many beaches.

Our Lugaris beach holiday apartments are located right on the beachfront, which offers many advantages. As well as the many options for cultural activities, entertainment and nightlife, one of the greatest advantages of Barcelona is its location on the Mediterranean coast, and its range of quality beaches.

Here are some reasons why choosing a holiday apartment near the beach in Barcelona is the best decision you can make if you want to enjoy the sun and sea as well as explore the city. 

Easy access to the beach

Barcelona is a coastal city with an internationally renowned beach. By staying in a Barcelona beach holiday apartment, you will be able to enjoy the sights and sounds of the sea at any time of the day. Pop down to the beach with just your swimsuit and towel to take a dip in the sea without the need to plan or travel.


Barcelona is a beautiful city but as in many big cities, there are often problems with theft. At the beach where there are many tourists, this is where the problem can be at its worst. Staying in a Barcelona beach holiday apartment means that you can leave all of your valuables at home when you head to the beach and rest assured that nothing will be stolen.


Barcelona beach offers a lot of activities such as swimming, paddle surfing, surfing, beach volleyball, and many others. By staying in a holiday apartment so close to the sea, you will be able to book any of these activities whenever you feel like it. In addition, there are many bars and restaurants nearby to go out for a drink or a good meal by the sea.


Barcelona’s beaches have a wide selection of services and amenities, such as showers, public toilets, sun loungers, parasols, etc. There are also restaurants right on the beach in summer to enjoy a delicious meal or a refreshing drink.


Staying in a Barcelona beach holiday apartment means having everything at your fingertips. Wander down to the beach at your leisure, or head out to explore the city. Many of the city’s tourist attractions and places of interest are close to the beach. While Barcelona’s public transport is among the most efficient in Europe, no one wants to spend their holiday constantly travelling by metro or bus. Enjoy everything Barcelona has to offer from the comfort of a Lugaris beach holiday apartment.

Where are the best beaches in Barcelona?

The Barcelona coastline is made up of 9 beaches that stretch approximately 4.5 kilometres. However, not all of these beaches are ideal places to stay as they are either too far from the city centre, or are located in busy or crowded areas.
For this reason, we at Lugaris suggest the following locations as the best places to stay in Barcelona near the beach.

Bogatell Beach

Bogatell beach is one of the most popular beaches in Barcelona and is located in the district of Sant Martí. It spans 640 metres long and 39 metres wide. Bogatell is an urban beach easily accessible by public transport and has a wide range of services, such as showers, public toilets, sunbathing areas, as well as a large selection of bars and restaurants.

It also offers a sports area where you can play beach volleyball, beach football and petanque. Bogatell beach is popular with both tourists and locals. It is known for its relaxed and quiet atmosphere, which attracts those looking to enjoy the sun and beach in a more relaxed environment than other more crowded beaches in the city.

Mar Bella Beach

Mar Bella Beach is one of Barcelona’s most famous beaches and is also located in the Sant Martí district. It measures 500 metres long and 42 metres wide and is a very popular urban beach among young people and families.

It is also known for having a stretch of nudist beach, with a specific area designated for swimmers who wish to enjoy the beach without clothes. In addition to the standard urban beach amenities, such as showers and public restrooms, Mar Bella also has a wide range of sports facilities, such as beach volleyball courts, beach football, and a skateboarding area.
