Activities outdoor to do in Barcelona

Actividades al aire libre

Barcelona is a city that offers a large number of options for outdoor activities. With the good weather we just feel like walking through the streets and enjoying the outdoors.

Barcelona is a city that perfectly combines the urban life style with the tranquility of nature. Whether you prefer to relax on the beach, explore parks or sit and have a drink on a terrace with panoramic views, on the Aerobús Blog you will find a plan for everyone.

We bring you a list of ideas so you can choose the one you like the most and enjoy Barcelona outdoors.

Imbernacle Parc de la Ciutadella

Parks in Barcelona

Did you know that Barcelona has more than 100 parks and gardens distributed throughout the city? We recommend the Parc de la Ciutadella where, in addition to enjoying green areas, you can take a boat ride on the lake.

If you travel with children, you can visit Horta Labyrinth park. As its name indicates, the more than 700 cypresses create the labyrinth route until reaching the central statue of Eros.

Also, from this month until after the summer, the parks and natural spaces of the Barcelona Provincial Council celebrate “Parcs en concert”, with a varied musical offering.


Terrace in Barcelona

We invite you to try some of the most beautiful terraces in Barcelona and enjoy incredible views. There are all kinds, secret and hidden terraces like the Café d’Estiu, hidden inside the Frederic Máres Museum. Also, terraces with spectacular views such as La Dolce Vitae, a terrace with music located on the roof of the Majestic hotel or the Xalet de Montjuïc with panoramic views of the city.

Another proposal is La Deliciosa Beach Bar, a beach bar atmosphere in Barceloneta, Torre Rosa one of the most charming cocktail bars or El Cercle located in the Pignatelli Palace.


Beaches in Barcelona

Feel the pleasure of walking barefoot on the beaches of Barcelona. The most popular are Barceloneta and Nova Icaria, but you can also explore quieter beaches like Bogatell and Mar Bella. They are perfect for sunbathing, swimming or practicing water sports such as paddleboarding or kayaking.

Finally, the Nova Mar Bella beach is known for its accessibility, with comfortable solutions for people with disabilities.

Port of Barcelona

Visit Port of Barcelona

The Port of Barcelona organizes open days from 24 to 26 May, coinciding with European Maritime Day. These activities are organized for the first time to publicize the largest transport infrastructure and services in Catalonia. You will be able to see its facilities and how it works.


If you come to Barcelona to spend a few days, remember that Aerobús takes you from El Prat Airport to the center in just 35 minutes, every day of the year.
