La Barceloneta is vivacious coastline of Barcelona; intertwine with lots of tasteful restaurants suitable for every pocket, where you can indulge in authentic Spanish culinary. It represents disconnection of hustle and bustle of the city and is great place to rest and enjoy for a half-day or even a whole day, especially in sunny weather.
We treated ourselves with escape to sunny Barcelona in January, but enjoyed its sand beaches anyway. There is always something going on, but on easy, hippy-like. And it totally suit to Barceloneta scenery.
