FIRMAMENTO BARCELONA (NOW CLOSED)
Most striking feature:
Barceloneta is more than a popular tourist beach, because surfers come here often to find the perfect wave. You will see surfers walking with their boards along the boulevard towards the sea and at chiringuito Gallito you will see the surfboards hanging on the wall – not only as decoration because you can also rent them. New is Firmamento, a surf shop that is only open during the weekend and where you can buy all kind of surf products. From the boards itself to wax (which has an oh so good coconut smell). But there’s more: the surf culture is also present. They sell wonderful surf magazines for example. But also Apartemento (which is made in Barcelona). And the t-shirts with the text Petit Surf and bags with handles made from sailing rope are so cool you want to have it immediately – even if you’re not a surfer. The chairs are also a wonderful design: made from wood and from wetsuit (!). Definitely worth a visit when you’re in Barceloneta. And if you’re not in Barcelona right now you can always visit their online shop.
