WARNING: During the summer season (June 1 to September 30) filming on the beaches are limited to weekdays and from 7am to 10am or 7pm to 10pm.

Located in the Ciutat Vella district, this is also the most westerly beach in Barcelona.

Along with Barceloneta beach, Sant Sebastià beach is the oldest and most traditional. It accommodates sports clubs that offer nautical activities of great importance to the city. It is also one of the longest, measuring approximately 1,085 metres.
Sant Sebastià is one of the most popular beaches in the city, as almost 70% of users are from Barcelona, especially from Ciutat Vella. However, this is also one of the city beaches most frequented by visitors from abroad.

Because of its location, most people reach it on foot or by public transport. There is a Metro station very nearby (Barceloneta Line L4), and the beach is also served by several bus lines (14, 16, 17, 39, 40, 45 51, 57, 59, 64, 157) that cross the greater part of the city. And if you want to use the Bicing bicycle sharing system, you will find five stations near Sant Sebastià beach (Nova Bocana, La Barceloneta, Passeig Joan de Borbó 72, Carrer Pontevedra / Judici and Carrer Atlàntida 82).

Sant Sebastià beach provides easy access and enjoyment for everyone, with special attention paid to those whose mobility is limited in some way: it features parking areas from which it is easy to reach the dry beach, visual and tactile signage and information, adapted toilets, wooden walkways down to the water and adapted showers with chairs. The public transport has also been adapted to provide easier access.
