Swimming in the sea
Taking the yacht a little way up the coast to a good anchorage to stop and swim has been a popular activity with visitors to Barcelona who book the boat. The nearest beaches are part of the city of Barcelona and anchoring is prohibited there so it is about a 40 minute cruise once we have left the marina to get there. So recently I have updated the descriptions of the sample trips to make clear that a three hour trip is the minimum needed for swimming. As many people will attest its well worth the ride there and the water is a warm 24 degrees Celsius right now.
