Nova Mar Bella Beach

Stretching 500m across the Catalan coast, Nova Mar Bella beach together with Mar Bella is one of the most popular around Barcelona. It is one of the most northerly beaches in the city, with a peaceful setting for a relaxing day in the sun. Located in the Sant Marti district, it is popular with both locals and tourists. The promenade in which it lies extends all the way to the busy streets of Barceloneta, where restaurants, cafes and bars surround you. This stretch of the beach was redeveloped for the 1992 Olympics as a venue for water sports. There are many facilities along this scenic beach for all to enjoy. Bordering the naturist beach next door, this beach welcomes everyone.

Nova Mar Bella

As one of the more peaceful and quiet beaches in the area, it is very popular among a wide range of age groups. With a width of 45 meters, you will be able to set up camp and have your own space, unlike at some of the more heavily populated beaches. The beach provides excellent disabled person facilities too, allowing wheelchair users to enjoy the sea with assisted bathing services. This service is available every weekend and on bank holidays. Just make sure to ask the lifeguard where to go! Showers are available along the beach, and also showers with chairs for people with limited mobility. The wooden walkway stretches down to just before the water for those with limited mobility to get right down to the sea. If you are looking for apartments for handicapped guests, we can help you.
