Port Olímpic

Edificio Capitanía, s/n, Barcelona, Spain, 08005

The Basics

Port Olímpic is a hub of activity on the Barcelona waterfront, particularly during the busy summer months. It’s the jumping-off point for sailing trips on the Mediterranean Sea, as well as kayaking, stand-up paddleboarding, and windsurfing lessons. The beachfront is home to numerous dining and shopping options, and once the sun goes down, some of Barcelona’s best nightclubs crank up the music for the late-night party crowd. Sun seekers and those looking to cool off on a hot summer afternoon can get their fix of sun, sand, and sea at the beaches on either side of the marina, Barceloneta and Nova Icària.

This was a very memorable experience. The boat was beautiful! The meeting point was convenient. The captain was such a nice guy!!! It was such a perfect way to see the city from the sea. The snacks and drinks were pleasant. We booked just an hour in advance as other plans fell through and it was a pleasant surprise. I highly recommend!

Great way to see the Barcelona Waterfront

Barcelona Sailing Experience Shared Sailboat from Port Olimpic
The Cruise was very pleasant and everyone was fun and sociable. It was a little strange though that we were required to put our things below deck, then discouraged from going below deck, and if we wanted to use the toilet needed to tell him first. As a result, no one went to the bathroom and no one took any pictures except one guy who had his phone in his pocket.

Frank Gehry’s Golden Fish

Don’t leave Barcelona without a quick trip to Port Olímpic, if only to see the giant goldfish sculpture designed by renowned architect Frank Gehry. The piece of art, calledPiex (Fish), measures 184 feet (56 meters) long and 115 feet (35 meters) tall and was made from gilded stainless steel that glistens in the sun.
