Whilst known as Barcelona’s only nudist beach, Mar Bella attracts as many gay sunbathers who prefer to keep that tackle undercover as those who are happy to let it all hang out.
The beach season starts around the beginning of May, with peak season being in August. This is the most popular ‘gay’ beach in Barcelona, but it is also the furthest from the city centre.
Take the Metro to Poble Nou (Yellow Line – L4), from which it is about a 10-minute walk to the beach. Alternatively, catch Bus 41 and alight at Parc esportiu de la Mar Bella. A taxi from Eixample will cost around 10€.
Tip: There is an excellent choice of very good cafés and restaurants in the nearby Rambla del Poblenou – about a 5-minute walk from the beach.
