Barceloneta
The city’s old fishing quarter, Barceloneta, is a warren of narrow residential streets dotted with classic family-owned seafood restaurants. The neighborhood is charming, if a bit scruffy, but its biggest asset is its proximity to Barcelona’s urban beaches, a three-mile-long stretch of sand and sea that buzzes with activity day and night. Passeig Joan de Borbó is the grand boulevard that divides Barceloneta from Port Vell, the harbor area where today, gleaming mega-yachts have taken the place of humble fishing boats. Lined with touristy cafes and souvenir shops, it’s nevertheless a pleasant street to stroll along on your way from the city to the beach.
