Underrated City Beaches

AAA

Barcelona 
Do all the sightseeing and exploring you can in this beautiful city. Barcelona is known for its well-preserved architecture, phenomenal food and drinks and diverse culture. Another renowned and frequently visited area is Barceloneta. During the summer of 1992, this area housed the Olympics Village where athletes stayed throughout the games. Now it houses a variety of restaurants, 
bars and clubs.

Chicago 
The Windy City isn’t best known for its beaches, but if it’s hot out and you have the afternoon free - you can’t beat spending time on Lake Michigan. The most central beach is Oak Street Beach, just a few minutes’ walk from the Magnificent Mile, Chicago’s premier commercial district filled with luxury hotels, fancy restaurants, lavish shops and malls. Although the water may be chilly, it can be a quick way for locals to cool off during the summer.

Sydney 
Australia’s most famous beach, Bondi, is also the closest to the city center of Sydney. Bondi is great, 
but a hidden treasure and local favorite is Manly Beach. The best way to get to Manly beach is via ferry. This is about a 30-minute 
boat ride from the city center. On your way, you can enjoy the beautiful Sydney Harbor. Upon arrival, you find yourself in an oceanfront resort town with restaurants, bars 
and hotels. 

Tip: If you want to burn off some energy, do the walk from the Spit Bridge into Manly. It is a stunning trail that takes you along the spectacular rugged coastline of Sydney Harbor. Bring good walk-ing shoes and water with you!
