Barcelona Beach Nova Icària
Beach Nova Icària
Nova Icària Beach is 400 m long and is situated in the centre of the city's
coastline. A significant amount of the people who frequent Nova Icària live
outside Barcelona and many of the are foreigners.
Together with the Bogatell beach, Nova Icària is the beach where visitors stay
the longest, possibly because it is considered one of the quietest in the city,
frequented mostly by families with children and also groups of friends. Many
users go there on foot.
This is one of Barcelona's most diversely equipped beaches, with equipment for
several different activities, a game area, a ping-pong table beside the Bogatell
breakwater and two volleyball courts at the Olympic Port end.
Area for disabled persons
The Nova Icària beach possesses an area for disabled persons with a bathing
assistance service. This service is available to disabled persons or people with
reduced mobility and consists of assisting them to get in and out of the water
and supervising their bathing time, using an amphibian bathing chair if
This area for the disabled is equipped with wooden walkways across the sand to
the shore, an adapted changing room, a sit-down shower and lift. All of this
equipment makes it possible for those who need assistance to reach the water
easily with the help of volunteers who help the users and their companions to
lift them from their wheelchairs into the amphibian chair and, if necessary, use
the lift to do so. Thus the volunteers provide assistance to approach, enter and
exit the water and also to accompany users whilst bathing.
This service is available every weekend and bank holiday during the months of
June and the second fortnight of September and every day during the months of
July and August and the first week in September, from 9 am to 2 pm and from 4 pm
to 7 pm.
