Zona de banys del Fòrum

Next to the photovoltaic panel and with the trade fair site as a backdrop, the bathing area offers bathers a different kind of space for enjoying the sea. With no sand and a paved solarium to relax on, it is the ideal place for swimming and sunbathing, far from the more crowded beaches.

A beach with no sand

For those who have always preferred a swimming pool, the Fòrum bathing area has established itself as a place where you can do what you do at the beach but without having to traipse across the sand. Access to the water in the bathing area, which is 375 metres long and 30 metres wide, is via steps, directly from the paved surface. And if you prefer to jump or dive into the water while doing some fancy flips, there is no problem because it is deep here.

Sand is a barrier for people who use wheelchairs. So the bathing area has a specific area for people with disabilities or reduced mobility. This is the only beach in Barcelona with systems designed to give everyone access to the sea. A hydraulic chair lift makes it easier to get in and out of the water, giving everyone the chance to take a dip. The assisted bathing service starts in the summer, when a Red Cross worker helps people with reduced mobility bathe in the sea.

Urban planning model

This modern urban beach, by the waters lapping Parc del Fòrum, is a real example of Barcelona's capacity for urban regeneration. It is located on the municipal boundary between Barcelona and Sant Adrià de Besòs and, because it has excellent links with the bike lanes along the shoreline, it has become the favourite beach of cyclists.
