When the sun illuminates Barcelona and the temperature of the water begins to be pleasant, open the "xiringuitos" in Catalan or “chiringuitos” in Spanish, that is, for us, the bars at the beach. From late May or early June, when these begin to open for the summer season, working people make the midday break running to the beach to enjoy some precious moments at the beach bars, while others will end the day with a drink listening to good music.
Originally the chiringuitos were simple beach bars. People would enjoy a lounger on the beach, have a drink and eat some tapas or snacks. Nowadays, the beach bars offer quality cuisine, cocktails and entertainment until late at night... The Barcelona Beach is a ritual, the beach bars are the essence of relaxation. You can enjoy them all day long, and we recommend you to visit these typical bars on the beach...
