Things to see

Shopping, sights, stunning architecture, sea, sand and sangria – it's no wonder the party capital of Barcelona is one of the most popular city breaks in Europe. Barcelona holidays offer a mix of history, colourful plazas and markets and amazing restaurants - and then there's the beach! Holidays to Barcelona are fun for all ages and with sea, sand and sunshine all year round, it's little surprise families, hen dos and groups of friends jet to this beautiful part of Spain every year. If you’re looking for the perfect city break that's just a short-haul flight away, Barcelona's vibrant nightlife, excellent dining scene and shopping is all you need.

Barcelona beaches

Barcelona has a 4km coastline and plenty of beaches close by to explore. The most famous is Barceloneta, with its northeastern end great for surfing. Platjas de Sant Miguel, Nova Icaria, Port Olimpic and Llevant are all popular hangouts buzzing with crowds and further along the coast you can head for Barcelona's neighbouring holiday resorts including Salou.

Go on a gastronomic tour

Being a coastal city, Barcelona boasts fantastic seafood restaurants. Head for Rias de Galicia and Cachitos or Can Sole and La Mar Salada near Barceloneta. Try Cinc Sentis for Spanish delicacies with authentic ingredients and Sauc for its delectable desserts, or wander the tapas trail through the old town and Gothic quarter where you can discover tiny restaurants full of flavour!

Barcelona nights out

It's possible to party all night long here – with buzzing clubs on the beach, tapas bars open late and stylish salsa clubs, jazz joints and discos dotted around the city. Dance under the stars at La Terraza or dance to heavy metal at Sala Apolo. For more techno or disco beats, head to buzzing Loft or Razzmatazz.

Have fun at Illa Fantasia water park

Illa Fantasia in Barcelona is one of Europe’s largest water parks. With 20 exciting water slides, including the kid-friendly Splash & Slide, and three wonderful pools to soak in, there's something for everyone. The best time to visit the park is during the summer months.

History & Culture

 

 

History & Culture

This is a city with so many sights you are spoilt for choice. A climb up the steps of Gaudi’s world famous Sagrada Familia Cathedral is a must for your itinerary if you’re after incredible views of the city and its stunning architecture. Park Guell, a short cab ride from the city centre, also affords amazing views right out across to the harbour and is home to outdoor Gaudi sculptures and mosaics. In the evening, stroll down the famous thoroughfare of La Ramblas, stopping at tempting tapas bars en route.

Nightlife

 

Nightlife

Barcelona has its fair share of glitzy restaurants, local tavernas and colourful tapas bars. Try the Catalan stew, Crema Catalana or pintxo style tapas where various cured meats, local cheeses and more are served on bread. If you’re a night owl, after sunset Barcelona ramps up the volume in its bustling squares, the Barri Gothic and La Ramblas. On the beach you'll find cool, open-air clubs where the scene doesn't get going until after 10pm.

 
Food & Drink

 

Food & Drink

Barcelona is the home of bite-seized goodies and you cannot return from a trip without trying the tasty tapas. Head to Quimet I Quimet, La Esquincia or El Jabali for magnificent menus full of patatas bravas, tigres and llonganissa sausages as you sip on local wine.

 
Barcelona Beaches

 

Barcelona Beaches

All of Barcelona’s beaches can be reached from the yellow metro line L4, or it’s a short cycle or walk from Las Ramblas. Out of a whopping 9km stretch of sand you’ll find Blue Flag beaches including La Nova Icaria, Bogatell, La Mar Bella, Llevant beach and more.

 
Cruise to Costa Dorada

 

Cruise to Costa Dorada

If you’re after a twin-centre holiday, Barcelona boasts the perfect blend of beach and city and just down the coast lies the beautiful Costa Dorada. Spend a few days exploring the buzzing city life and the city's most famous sights before hitting the city beach or taking a train down the coast to the costa and exploring its chilled out towns and villages and beautiful seaside resorts.

 
Harbour Heaven

 

Harbour Heaven

Barcelona's lively harbour is a short walk from the shops and street performers of Las Ramblas and offers great waterside views, some high-end restaurants and a shopping mall. It's also one of the many spots in the city where you can hire bikes. Hop on two wheels and cycle straight from the marina boardwalk along the beachfront and to one of the many fantastic beachfront restaurants and bars.

 
Lively La Ramblas

 

Lively La Ramblas

From the street performers to the cafés and shops, La Ramblas is the beating heart of the city and its fun to wander down during the day or evening to soak up the special Barcelona vibes. Barcelona is also home to some of the best food and open-air markets in Europe. La Boqueria, probably Barcelona's most popular food stop, is located off La Ramblas and has tapas restaurants and a buzzing atmosphere among it's plethora of stalls. Pull up a stool at one of the street food tapas bars and enjoy a glass of rioja amid the bustle.
