The Basics

Port Olímpic is a hub of activity on the Barcelona waterfront, particularly during the busy summer months. It’s the jumping-off point for sailing trips on the Mediterranean Sea, as well as kayaking, stand-up paddleboarding, and windsurfing lessons. The beachfront is home to numerous dining and shopping options, and once the sun goes down, some of Barcelona’s best nightclubs crank up the music for the late-night party crowd. Sun seekers and those looking to cool off on a hot summer afternoon can get their fix of sun, sand, and sea at the beaches on either side of the marina, Barceloneta and Nova Icària.

Don’t leave Barcelona without a quick trip to Port Olímpic, if only to see the giant goldfish sculpture designed by renowned architect Frank Gehry. The piece of art, calledPiex (Fish), measures 184 feet (56 meters) long and 115 feet (35 meters) tall and was made from gilded stainless steel that glistens in the sun.
