A 300m stroll east from the Edifici Fòrum is the Zona de Banys , with kayaks and bikes available for rent, the option to learn diving, and other activities. This tranquil seawater swimming area was won from the sea by the creation of massive cement-block dykes. At its northern end, like a great rectangular sunflower, an enormous photovoltaic panel turns its face up to the sun to power the area with solar energy. Along with another set of solar panels in the form of porticoes, it generates enough electricity for 1000 households. Just behind it spreads Port Fòrum , Barcelona’s third marina. The area is unified by an undulating esplanade and walkways that are perfect for walking, wheelchair access, bikes and skateboards.
