Located between the Sant Sebastià and the Somorrostro Beach, it was one of the first beaches in Barcelona to go under a severe transformation when  the remodeling of the coast line took place for the 1992 Olympic Games.

The result is an extensive two-leveled boardwalk called Paseo Marítimo (Beach promenade) that starts right at this beach. The first one at ground level where depending on the season you can find, stores and beach related services.

The upper one at street level is an observation point of the beach and perfect for practicing biking or running.
