On Barceloneta's seaward side are the first of Barcelona's beaches, which are hugely popular on summer weekends. The broad Passeig Marítim de la Barceloneta, a 1.25km promenade from Barceloneta to Port Olímpic, is a favourite with strollers and runners, with cyclists zipping by on a separate path nearby.
