Visiting Barcelona during summer is great! You’ll find sun, party, good atmosphere and miles of beaches that border the city. If you plan to come to Barcelona in the summer, one of the best things you can do is to find accommodation in apartments near the beach in Barcelona, ??so you can stay near the center of all activities.

If you decide to spend the day in one of the beaches in Barcelona, ??you can choose to eat and drink at any of the popular beach bars known as “chiringuitos”. Chiringuitos are small establishments for selling food and drinks, but in Barcelona you’ll find chiringuitos including table service, live DJs and more. Note that food and beverages at chiringuitos are not cheap, however, as they’re right on the beach, many people consider them as an attractive option.

If you are staying in apartments on the beach in Barcelona you will not have the need to eat in these beach bars, but still, we suggest you to have a cocktail at the end of the evening, while watching the sea…  you’ll love it!

Among the main chiringuitos in Barcelona you will find:

Barceloneta Beach:

  • Chiringuito del Sol & Chiringuito del Mar: One of our favorite beach bars. The staff speaks several languages. You’ll find a multi-course menu style snacks (nothing too fancy but tasty) and different cocktails –try mojitos in this place- and sit at the large terrace. Sometimes there is a DJ playing in the afternoon.
  • Chiringuito Princesa 23: A branch of the renowned Princess 23 at Born neighborhood, located right on the beach. It offers tex-mex cuisine, and ask for cocktail promotions (reasonable prices).  This beach bar is always crowded.

  • Inercia and Dockers: These bars belong to the same owners. You’ll find tapas (Spanish snacks), pizzas, sandwiches, salads, nachos, cocktails and pitchers of sangria or sangria de cava (made with catalonian sparkling wine). Sometimes there are DJs playing in any of these bars.

Bogatell Beach:

  • Chiringuito Escribà: More than a bar, this is a beach restaurant that offers delicious Spanish tapas, such as cockles, patatas bravas (fried potatoes with spice sauce), calamari and squid, salads, grilled seafood, prawns, variety of rice dishes, fish, fidegua and more.
  • Vai Moana: Another place with a differentiated menu, offering varied skewers with curry and served with basmati rice, chicken wings with barbecue sauce, lasagna, creative saldas and nice cocktails.

Marbella and Nova Mar Bella Beaches:

  • Chiringuito Mochima Bar: the owners are Catalan-Venezuelans, so the name of these chiringuitos refers to a Venezuelan national sea park. You can find Mexican cuisine options such as nachos, burritos, salads and delicious sandwiches (we do not know why, but the bread is just amazing).
