Barceloneta beach gained status as the best urban beach in the World and total third best beach in the World, according the documentary film "Worlds Best Beaches" produced by Discovery Channel in 2005.
Barceloneta is known for its sandy beach (notable for its appearance in Don Quixote, book 2) and its many restaurants and nightclubs along the boardwalk. Over the past several years the quality of the sand on the beach has become a source of continued controversy. As of February 2008 the World Health Organisation began an inquiry designed to ascertain whether the sand meets WHO beach health and safety guidelines.
Amongst the attractions on Barceloneta's beach are German artist Rebecca Horn's 'Homenatge a la Barceloneta' monument, and, where the beach gives way to the Port Olimpic, Frank Gehry's modern 'Peix d'Or' sculpture
