For the beach, nothing better than public transport, walking or cyclingDuring the summer months, Barcelona's public transport will receive an extra boost to bring the city's residents closer to our more than four kilometres of beaches. From San Sebastià Beach to the Fòrum Bathing Area, getting there by metro or bus is a great option.
It is the high season for Barcelona’s beaches, which means that there is a considerable number of people arriving at the city’s coastal area every day, and particularly at the weekends. We therefore recommend that beachgoers get there in a healthy and sustainable way: cycling, walking or by public transport.
Furthermore, Transports Metropolitans de Barcelona (TMB) will increase the public transport available in this area throughout this period.
Additional public transport
During the summer months, Barcelona’s public transport will receive an extra boost to bring the city’s residents closer to our more than four kilometres of beaches. From San Sebastià Beach to the Fòrum Bathing Area, getting there by metro or bus is a great option.
San Sebastià Beach and Sant Miquel Beach
These are the two beaches right next to the W Hotel, and you can reach them by bus using the D20 – with additional buses at the weekends – V15, V19, 47 and 59 routes, or by metro by getting off at the Barceloneta station on the L4 line.
The city’s busiest beach can also be reached by bus, also using the D20, V15, V19, 47 or 59 buses, or by metro. The closest stations are Ciutadella/Vila Olímpica and Barceloneta on metro line L4.
The D20, H16, V21, 47 and 59 buses will take you to Somorrostro Beach, with its many bars, restaurants and nightclubs. The closest metro stop is Ciutadella/Vila Olímpica, on the L4 line.
Nova Icària Beach
On the other side of Somorrostro Beach and the Olympic Port is Nova Icària Beach, which can be reached by bus – routes H16, V21, V34, V25, V27 and 59 – as well as on the L4 metro line – Ciutadella/Vila Olímpica and Bogatell stations.
This can be easily reached with the H16, V23, V25, V27 or 6 buses or by metro, getting off at the Llacuna or Poblenou stations on the L4 line.
Mar Bella Beach and Nova Mar Bella beach
To get there by bus, take the H16, V27, V29 or V31 bus. The closest metro stop to Mar Bella is Poblenou, whereas anyone going to Nova Mar Bella Beach is recommended to get off at the Selva de Mar stop on metro line L4.
Llevant Beach and the Fórum Bathing Area
The former is the city’s newest beach, which has been open since 2006, and the latter is the Fòrum’s sandless bathing area. They can both be reached by bus using the H16, V29, V31 and 7 routes but, if you want to take the metro, your best option is to get off at Selva de Mar (L4 line) for Llevant Beach or at Maresme/Fòrum for the Forum Bathing Area.
If you have any queries, TMB has a Twitter service and information account available for users (from 7 am to 8 pm Monday to Friday except bank holidays).
