Fodor's Review

Choked with yachts, restaurants, tapas bars, and mega-restaurants serving reasonably decent fare continuously 1 pm to 1 am, the Olympic Port is 2 km (1 mile) up the beach from Barceloneta, marked by the mammoth shimmering goldfish sculpture by starchitect Frank Gehry, who designed the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao (Bilbao got a leviathan; Barcelona got a goldfish). In the shadow of Barcelona's first real skyscraper, the Hotel Arts, the Olympic Port draws hundreds—nay, thousands—of young people of all nationalities on Friday and Saturday nights, especially in summer, on the beach at Nova Icària, generating a buzz redolent of spring break in Cancún.
