In the port you can even walk freely and view the luxury super yachts. Regularly you see yachts coming in, with a length of 40 meters or more, with a "garage door" in the back which contains various jetskis, a speedboat, and even a sports car. From time to time there is also one super yacht which has its own helicopter deck.
Most of the time the owners are not on board and the yacht is managed by a crew, which consists sometimes up to 20 or even more.
Occasionally you will see on the aft deck of a super yacht the entire crew in uniform waiting. Some time later a number of expensive and tinted cars park for the gangway, doors are kept open and the owner with his retinue walk through the gangway and disappear in the super yacht. The staff quickly follows with a cargo of exotic suitcases, after which cars are leaving and peace returns again.

Via the walkway you get to the Parc del Forum where from time to time festivities are organised. At the waterfront of Parc del Forum, you find Banys Forum, an enclosed sea swimming area with dressing rooms and Red Cross medical services. There is also children's playground, a CMAS diving school and the possibility of cable water skiing.
If you walk a bit further you will come to the beach where various beach bars are located. Bambu Beach Bar is located. One of our favourites is the first one, Bambu Beach Bar, which rent out sunbeds and parasols and serve nice beach food and cocktails in their restaurant but also on the sunbeds.
In the distance you can see the 2 Towers that flank Port Olympic. Rent bikes or go walking along the beautiful beaches and striking buildings of Barcelona!
