There are about two miles of golden sandy beaches only about a 10-minute walk from Barcelona's city center. The city's close proximity to the Mediterranean also means there is an amazing selection of seafood. Two years ago, when I attended my first MWC, I stumbled upon a tiny seafood restaurant called La Pardeta near the El Born section of town. It offers glistening mounds of fresh shellfish daily. You point to what you want; choose one of three ways to have it cooked: grilled, steamed, or a la merinera; grab a drink, and wait for your number to be called. I go there at least once every time I come to Barcelona.
