Where to Swim in Barcelona

Posted by Catalunya Casas on September 12th, 2017

Whether you take a holiday in Spain during the summer, or prefer to take your Spain vacation in the winter, there’s usually one thing you can always rely on: great weather! While the temperatures in the winter months can be a little cooler and much more unpredictable, winters can often be very mild and pleasant, and you may still need to cool off a little! So where are the best places to swim in Barcelona?

There’s really 3 options to choose from:

  •         Option 1: Your Villa with Private Pool in Barcelona

A villa with private pool in Spain is undoubtedly the best option for swimming in the city, giving you unrestricted access to the waters whenever you feel like taking a dip. If you dislike crowds, or are travelling with little ones and are worried about them getting splashed by bigger kids, then this is a great way to take control and ensure a safe and supportive environment for your kids to learn to swim.


  •         Option 2: A Public Swimming Pool in Barcelona

There are lots of outdoor public swimming pools in Barcelona that are a good option for those who have decided to rent a villa in Spain without a private swimming pool. For young families and swimmers who aren’t particularly confident, Ciutadella Municipal Sports Centre is good because the pool is quite shallow. Otherwise, head to the Montjuïc Municipal Swimming Pool for spectacular views of the area.


  •         Option 3: One of Barcelona’s Best Beaches

Perhaps the most common option for swimming in Barcelona is to head to one of the local beaches. Barceloneta Beach is one of the most easily accessible from many Barcelona accommodations which makes it a good choice, but this beach can get very busy, especially in the summer and on sunny weekends. Mar Bella Beach may be slightly quieter (although many of the beachgoers are nude!).
