7 Best beach apartments in Barcelona

7 Best beach apartments in Barcelona

Relax in a beach apartment after a hard day of touring the city.

Nothing says "I’m enjoying one of the best summer vacations of my life" than stepping out onto your balcony and watching the sunshine glisten over the Mediterranean sea as you sip an ice cold drink. With beaches so close that you can practically touch them, it’s almost as if they’re your apartment’s very own backyard. We've got well over 100 apartments close to the beach in Barcelona and a majority of these can be found in the Barceloneta neighbourhood (we have a page of places to stay in that area here)... But it's right here on this page that you will find the best of the best places to stay on the city's coastline.

Garcia Beach I

Garcia Beach Apartment in Barcelona
A peaceful beachside apartment with views!

If you're not a fan of the city centre crowds - who can usually be found occupying Barceloneta beach at some point - then you need to opt for an accommodation and beach that's away from the bustle. This huge modern space is fully equipped and almost 150 square metres with a double bedroom and 3 twin bedrooms. It's one of the few holiday apartments in the city that you have direct views over the beach sprawled out in front of you. There is a metro station nearby, so you will have easy access to every part of the city.

Garcia Beach II

Modern beachside apartment in Barcelona with great views
The perfect alternative when Garcia Beach I!

Every great thing needs a sequel, and apartments are no exception. That's why when we discovered Garcia Beach II, we were thrilled. It's cheaper than its counterpart, but not because it lacks quality (they are the same in this regard), but rather because it has 2 bedrooms instead of 4. Both bedrooms are twin bedrooms and the rest of the apartment is well-equipped from air-conditioning to phone-calls and internet access.

  • Nearest beach - Mar Bella
  • Distance from beach - 300m

Vinaros Beach I and IV

Apartment in Barcelona right next to Barceloneta beach
If you were any closer to the beach you'd be in the sea

When we say that these apartments are literally a stone's throw away from the beach, we mean it. At under 50 m away, you can reach Sant Sebastia beach from here in a matter of seconds. These two apartments are located in the same building, and each can accommodate up to 4 guests. This means that if you're traveling as a group of friends you can all stay under the same roof. Both flats are well-equipped with air-conditioning, WiFi access, and well-equipped kitchens. There is also a double bed and bunk-bed in each!

(By the way, OK Apartment doesn't actually condone throwing stones)

Vila Olimpica Beach

Modern apartment by Port Olimpic
An exclusive apartment in an exclusive area

This is one of our most popular beach apartments and it's located in an area that's frequented by the rich and famous when they visit Barcelona. There is a master bedroom that has an en-suite bathroom, and two twin bedrooms. From the terrace you can see the nearby port and marina, which you can easily visit with its many restaurants and facilities. In front of the building is a beautiful community green space that's ideal for relaxing or letting the kids play.

  • Nearest beach - Nova Icaria
  • Distance from beach - 200m

Icaria Beach

Apartment close to Icaria beach with Jacuzzi
Rustic charm, modern equipment, stunning beaches.

This apartment is a rare gem, because practically all of the other apartments along the beaches are usually decorated in a minimalist modern style, but Icaria beach keeps the rustic charm of Catalan architecture with exposed wooden beams and solid brick walls. You won't feel lost in the past though, because it's equipped even better than the modern counterparts with an independent kitchen and jacuzzi tub in the bathroom. So, sunbathe on the beach all day before coming back, popping open a bottle of Cava (Catalonia's champagne), and taking a blissful session of complete relaxation in your very own hot tub.

  • Nearest beach - Nova Icaria
  • Distance from beach - 300m

It has community parking in the same building, so you can make this flat your base while you enjoy the the city beaches… But if they prove too crowded for your liking, you can simply jump into your car and head off to the magnificent Costa Brava (where you can also find fantastic coastal apartments with OK Apartment Costa Brava.
