It’s about a 30-minute drive from the pier past Columbus Monument and other sights to La Barceloneta, a popular city beach dotted with artistic sculptures and sun worshippers. Meet your experienced instructors for a safety briefing and short paddling lesson. Then it’s off to the water to put your newfound skills to work.

The sea waters off Barcelona are calm and peaceful, and the paddleboard vantage point offers great views of the city. Your lessons on balancing, body position, and weather and tide awareness will come in handy as you pilot your paddleboard just off the shore for 90 minutes or so.

After paddling, enjoy free time for about an hour. Sip a glass of sangria with a sandwich for lunch, then take a walk along the beach or go for a swim before returning to the pier.
