24 Hours in Barcelona

The Dovetail Agency

Dovetail jetted off to sunny Barcelona last week to visit OneOcean Port Vell, Europe’s most centrally located marina within a city. From the moment we arrived into the city we were treated with the six star service OneOcean Port Vell is famous for.

We started by exploring the city’s hidden gems, walking through the streets of Barcenoleta and stopping off at a quaint tapas bar – Golfo de Bizkaia – which we were later told was one of the best in the city.  

The next part had to be the highlight of the trip. We made our way back to the marina to be greeted by a red Ferrari, courtesy of Drive Me Barcelona. We strapped ourselves in and set off on a one hour tour of the city driving our very own Ferraris! After the adrenaline rush of the supercars, we unwound with a relaxing massage at OneOcean Wellness.

Our evening kick-started with delicious cocktails at Bluewave, which was hired out exclusively for us, before heading over to OneOcean Club for dinner. Designed to reflect the rounded geometry of the hull of a yacht, the atmosphere was fantastic, with a table overlooking the stunning marina. We enjoyed a seasonal menu with a modern twist on traditional Catalan cuisine, starting with an array of tapas treats followed by fresh fish caught that very day.  

After a tour of the marina the following morning, we couldn’t leave the city without sampling Spain’s most famous dish – Paella. Perched on the Barcenoleta beach we stepped into Pez Vela for a long lazy lunch, Spanish style!  

24 hours in this beautiful city is definitely not enough!
