Sant Marti is a district in Barcelona and it’s famous for its beaches and malls. It’s a residential area and tourists mostly come here to get a feel of the local life of Spain. There is no airport in this area but you can reach the district by taking a flight to Barcelona. Once you land at the Barcelona El Prat Airport, take a cab to reach your destination. As it’s a very busy airport and several airlines operate from here, you can easily find cheap flights to Sant Marti. Sant Marti offers quality accommodation and restaurants to tourists and enables them to stay away from the hustle and bustle of a big city like Barcelona. There are some good hotels in Sant Marti, offering comfortable food and lodging facility within budget.
The area is a paradise for swimmers and water sports lovers. There are as many as five beaches in Sant Marti, offering all the fun activities and security features that you can expect in any world-class beach. The five beaches are Bogatell, Nova Icària, Nova Mar Bella, Mar Bella, and Llevant. The best thing about these beaches is that it is not very crowded unlike the other popular beaches in Spain. Thus, you can enjoy a quiet time with your loved one, swim as long as you want to and witness the spectacular sunset. However, if you are going with kids, it’s better to avoid the Mar Bella as it’s a nudist beach.
The most famous park in Sant Marti is Parc Diagonal Mar. It’s an urban park and the total area is 14 hectares. There are seven different areas inside the park for people belonging to different age groups. The park is very well planned, having a central plaza, separate playing area for children and a beautiful lake where you can sit and talk with your friends, lover or just anyone.
One of the landmark buildings of this area is Torre Agbar. It’s mainly an office tower, but what gets people’s attention is its shape that looks like the nose of a rocket. If you are present in the city during weekend, visit Torre Agbar at night. The building is lighted in several colors on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
Tourists coming from overseas via cheap flights to Sant Marti, having interest in history and culture, can visit El Museu Blau. The museum is not very large but the exhibits are worth seeing.
