On the front sundeck (6.00 x 5.00 m.) you have a splendid view over the Marina. Almost all yachts have their rear sitting area on the back, but the St. Katharine has it on the front and therefore has much privacy. Here you find a lovely lounge corner and dining area for 8 people. Also a big bbq to make a lovely meal for lunch or diner. To keep you out of the sun (if you want) there are 2 big parasols.
On the other deck there are sunbeds/loungers. Wind screens along the railing have been put on to make it very private so that you can enjoy and relax!
Left of the Marina, a 5-minutes walk, there is the cosy Beach Playa Forum. Here you can swim in the clear water and because of the slope, it is an ideal beach for children! Also there is a BBQ Restaurant La Barca d'Adria and on the beach the lounge Beach Club Mac Arena with often in the evenings a cosy atmosphere and music.
Next to Port Forum there are several areas for roller skating and skate boarden. Besides that Barcelona is easy to reach and to see by bike! Possible to take your own, but also to rent them - please ask for more information.
