Once an industrial port filled with factories and workshops; Port Olympic was transformed for the Olympic Games in 1992 where all of the sailing competitions were held. A beautiful marina was built for the sailing events and the beach was extended to approximately 4km in length.
Visiting Port Olympic by day
Dotted along the whole length of Port Olympic there are plenty of great restaurants and cafes specialising in seafood. They vary in price, from great value to more expensive, but well worth it for the quality of the food and the beautiful views.
If you can’t quite afford the expensive cuisine then you could also head down to the beaches here. Bogatell tends to be less crowded than Barceloneta as it is further away from the city centre
Visiting Port Olympic by night
p>There are Barcelona party goers all year round in Port Olympic. Along the seafront you will find many clubs and bars, which are always buzzing. It is the perfect place to have a cocktail and gaze into the Mediterranean. The Gran Casino is also located here where you can try your luck at winning back some of the money you spent on dinner.
How to get there
The L4 metro runs all the way along the seafront from Barceloneta to Ciutadella and Port Olympic as well as Bogatell. There are also many buses which follow the same route if you would like to admire the scenery but don’t fancy the walk!
