Exploring the coast

The sea is life! If you want to delve into Barcelona's maritime history, go to the coast and discover the culture that has shaped the city: visit the Museu Marítim, the Museu d'Història, the fishing quay… La Ribera is a magical neighbourhood. Be amazed at Santa Maria del Mar, the charming shops, narrow streets steeped in history… or dive into the Aquàrium in the old harbour, the Port Vell. And the thrill-seekers among you can choose from a great choice of water sports: sailing and windsurfing in Vilanova, kayaking and flyboarding at the Olympic Marina, an introduction to scuba diving in Mataró… you can explore the entire coast! It stretches for 100 km and offers a whole host of activities and beautiful seaside towns, like Sitges, and coastal counties, such as the Maresme, with its beachfront restaurants where you can eat amazing fresh fish and raise your glass to an amazing holiday!
