Somorrostro beach (Beach)

Somorrostro beach

A central beach by Barceloneta

Somorrostro beach can be found by Hospital del Mar and Carrer de la Marina. It belongs to the section of beaches found in the Barceloneta district. It's called Somorrostro because not so long ago it was home to a makeshift shantytown neighbourhood with the same name, which lasted for over 100 years before being destroyed in anticipation of a visit to the Catalan capital from Franco in 1966.

Being situated in Barceloneta, Somorrostro naturally has a very central location and convenient access by public transport. For this reason it is one of the favorite beach areas for young people, tourists, and of course some locals.
