The 1992 Olympics brought about a big change in this area, before the seafront was made up of warehouses and docks, but now it has been transformed into one of Barcelona's most modern and architecturally ambitious districts.
The area has two beaches, Icaria and Bogatell, both of which are increasingly popular and house quite a few beachside bars and restaurants. The beaches are all well equipped with toilets, showers, first aid and changing rooms for the disabled. These beaches are quite popular for windsurfers and there is a sailing school if you want to prove your dexterity on the sea. If you want so sunbathe in peace then I recommend you walk up the beach away from the port, where there are far less people, although you may find yourself stumbling across a few nudists!
By night the area comes alive and people swarm to the huge strip of restaurants and well-known clubs such as Shoko and Baja Beach that look out onto the port, all under the watchful eye of a big golden fish designed by Frank Gehry for the 92 Olympics.
Bogatell is less modernized than the nearby Villa Olympica and still has remnants of old Barcelona, small Catalan cafés and narrow roads. If you want to escape from the crowds then this a good place to head and cool down after a long day at the beach.
Avenida Icaria which runs through Bogatell to the Olympic village is also where you will find the Vila complex which consists of restaurants, shopping, a supermarket and a 15 screen cinema that shows all the newest releases in their original language - great if you fancy watching a film in English.
The area is for the most part quite modern and enjoy the relative quiet of an out of town location, but also have the beach and the Olympic village for entertainment.
Both Bogatell and Ciutadella Villa Olympica have metro stops on the yellow line that will take you into the centre of Barcelona in 10-15 minutes. You could also walk to Las Ramblas in about half an hour if you feel energetic. Otherwise taxis are cheap and easy to get around the Olympic Village.
Other sights of interest are the Parc Ciutadella which is surprisingly tranquil most of the time and a lovely place for a picnic. In the park you will also find the Barcelona Zoo which is always a favorite with children and adults alike (be sure to catch the dolphin show).

Lovely close to the beach, all facilities close by. The city is easy accessible and Jaesse is really helpful to maximise your comfort during the stay. Beautiful decorated apartment.
The place is simply gorgeous, Mercedes who will welcome you is very helpful. She helped us on several occasions during the week-end. in addition to the place being one of the best one you can find, it is 5 minutes from the beach, 5 minutes from the shopping center. I will rent it again!
We had such a great trip. The apartment was spacious and luxious as in the pictures. A nice kitchen, two good bathrooms, comfortable couches, a walk in closet and great paintings and statues.
The apartment is just two streets from the beautifull beaches in Barcelona (3 min. walk). Supermarket just a minute away. Located in the neighbourhood Villa Olimpica, just in between Poble Nou and Barcelonetta.
Renting bicycles is a tip. We've rented beachcruisers at Cruisin' Barcelona, close to Segrada Famlia.
Great place . Easy to get to. Jaesse was awesome in making sure everything was taken care of. I definitely recommend both the flat and Jaesse.
The apartment is like the pictures: beautiful, fancy, plenty of light and surrounded by cool pieces of art and design. The area is so quiet and nice as well.
The place is absolutely gorgeous and is so amazingly convenient. It was so easy to get around, super close to transit, the grocery store and the beach. Picking up the keys was a breeze - Jaesse had someone meet us at the apartment after we arrived.
What a great home base for our trip to Barcelona!
Jaesse’s apartment is a great place, we had a fantastic time there. The flat is clean, well-equipped and situated in a nice neighbourhood. We can definitely recommend it and would love to come back next time. Thanks for having us!
Once more a great experience.
