When you visit Barcelona, Barceloneta Beach is only a short subway ride from downtown. The fresh salty smell of the ocean and the white, stick your toes in the sand beach, awaits. Welcome to week 286 (7/14/2016) of Travel Photo Thursday. Let’s have a peek!

Barceloneta Beach with its palm trees, boardwalk, white sand, and the salt air smells. What more can we ask for?
Too chilly for swimming, but everyone is having fun.
There was some serious beach sculpting going on!
Of course, there’s a manger scene in the sand! 🙂
Beautiful sun and shadows were playing in the sand.
There are many great looking fresh seafood restaurants in the area, or you can visit the artisan food market a short walk across the street from the beach. I chose a bag of freshly made churros with a dusting of sugar, and I was not disappointed.
The maker of churro magic!
The fresh handmade pepperoni is not to be missed.
Barceloneta Beach is not without its touts.
I was treated to a lovely, delicate winter sunset. Notice the airplane flying by.
The end of December is not laying on the beach kind of weather. However, people were having a great time, and the smell of salt air is always invigorating. For me, it really doesn’t matter the season, if there’s a beach close by I’ll be there to take in the sights and the ocean smells.

Getting there: Metro stop “Barceloneta” (Yellow Line, L4)
Turn right when you leave the station. Cross the main road, and walk straight along Passeig de Joan de Borbo for about 10 minutes. You will see the marina on your right.
