Location of the beaches

The role cities play in the natural water cycle is of vital importance. The responsible management of water resources, with the overall emphasis on the whole water cycle, is fundamental. It includes the supply of available water resources, the sewer system, the storm water emergency storage system, public fountains and ornamental ponds, the beaches and water consumption in the city.

On 23 March the City Council will launch the municipal plan for the spring beach season, coinciding with the arrival of spring and warmer weather. The services will be partially active until June 1 when, with the start of the high season, all services will be made fully available to deal with the increase in users.

All the city beaches, with a total length of over 4.5 kilometres between the Sant Sebastià and Llevant beaches, are equipped with services for swimmers and users. The aim is to guarantee the safety and quality of this public space and facilitate good relations on the Barcelona seafront.
