Getting there

Smoke-free beach
  • Blue Flag

It is approximately 420 metres long and, together with Mar Bella beach, is one of the beaches that emerged from the redevelopment of the Barcelona seafront, carried out in 1992 for the Barcelona Olympics.

Nova Mar Bella beach belongs to the Sant Martí district and it is mostly used by residents from this area. It is considered one of quietest in the city.

This beach also has a volleyball court located halfway along.

Nova Mar Bella beach provides easy access and enjoyment for everyone, with special attention paid to those whose mobility is limited in some way: it features parking areas from which it is easy to reach the dry beach, visual and tactile signage and information, adapted toilets, wooden walkways that reach the water as close as possible (although, under no circumstances will they ever touch the water, as its currents could detach the module) and adapted showers with chairs. The public transport has also been adapted to provide easier access.

The Ecoplayas flag is flying on the beach as recognition of its quality and services.
