Barcelona is one of most popular holiday resorts in Europe. No wonder about that. With a relaxed and laid-back culture, an outstanding cuisine and a breathtakingly beautiful location with the Mediterranean Sea in the East and the Serra de Collserola mountain range in the West, you could hardly ask for more. But Barcelona offers so much more: a fun-filled and vibrant nightlife, some of the most extravagant pieces of architecture in Europe, a wide range of amusing activities and historically interesting sights.Swim in the sea
Barcelona has almost 5 km of coastline and no less than 10 beaches in the middle of the city, of which Barceloneta Beach is probably the most famous. Go for a swim in the warm water! In the summer (June-August), the average temperature of the sea in Barcelona is between 22 and 25 °C. At Barceloneta you also find all sorts of entertainers, sand-artists and salesmen, spectacular monuments and a wide range of seafood restaurants.
