Mar Bella Beach
Barcelona's most famous nude and gay friendly beach
Mar Bella Beach
Mar Bella Beach is the most notorious nude and gay friendly beach in Barcelona.
Similar to all the beaches on the northeastern side of the Olympic Port, Mar Bella Beach was also part of the urban planning that made the waterfront accesible for all the Barcelona residents.
It's connected to the rest of the beaches by the Passeig Marítim. It's located very close to the charming Poblenou district. If you want to go nude in Barcelona in a gay friendly environment, Mar Bella is your beach.
Dress code & nudity
Mar Bella beach is very popular among the LGBT community. Due to its special and more secluded location compared to other Barcelona beaches, it's one of the few nude beaches in Barcelona.
On the beach itself, the practice of sports like beach volleyball and table tennis are available. On the other hand, not far from the entrance, there's a basketball hoop and skating area.
The nautical base also offers sea sports like kayak, sailing trips along the coast and catamaran excursions.
Like all Barcelona beaches, Mar Bella offers adapted showers, public toilets and changing rooms, bicycle parking areas, lifeguard service, restaurant and bar.
In fact, you can enjoy cocktails, drinks and food at the lovely Xiringuito Buda Beach.
