Activities

As for individual activities, centre users will be able to follow seaside routes and go on guided tours (the beach, the sea wall, the fish wholesale market, the Zoo, the Barceloneta neighbourhood, CRAM, IMAX, etc.,) take part in marine biodiversity discovery activities and family workshops, and watch documentaries, among other things. Places for these activities are limited and registration will be dealt with on a first-come, first-served basis.

The Beach Centre offers an opportunity for publicising activities run by organisations, associations and groups with links to the Barcelona coastal area. Anyone interested can use the meeting room at the Beach Centre for training sessions and meetings, and take advantage of the facilities it offers: computers, a projector, a whiteboard and Wi-Fi.
