Short story

— Barcelona


Urban beach clubs call for clothing that doesn’t sacrifice elegance in the pursuit of sun worship. Opt for neatly tailored swimming shorts that can equally be worn for a stroll round town once you’ve dried off – or just to the bar and back.

Locals who really love the beach live in Barceloneta, a district to the south of the old town. Built in the 18th century, Barceloneta is populated by a hardcore of Catalans who refuse to move, even if that would let them escape the tourists and young crowd of sun, sea, sand and sex-loving international settlers who flock here. Redeveloped in the run-up to the Olympics in 1992, Barceloneta’s seafront offers a manmade beach dotted with chiringuitos (beach bars), seafood restaurants and Barcelonans sunning themselves all summer long.
