You can consider the following options instead of beachfront hotels in Barcelona

Barcelona beachfront Apartments instead of beachfront hotels

Look for oceanfront apartments or vacation rentals. There are many accommodation sites dedicated to helping tourists find short term rentals in Barcelona. These include:
- Habitat Apartments
- Oh-Barcelona
- Barcelona Apartment
Filter the listings on the above sites for hotels with beach access.
Apartments may not have the same amenities as hotels. Do not expect a rooftop pool with a bar.

Head to Sitges

Consider Sitges and not Barcelona, as your base station.

Tariff of beach hotels in Sitges is lower compared to the tariff of oceanfront hotels in Barcelona.

By train, Barcelona is only 40 minutes from Sitges. Trains to Sitges from Barcelona run approximately every twenty minutes. Actually, you do not have to limit your choice to Sitges, it can be any beach town near Barcelona

A legal apartment must be registered. Vacation rental site must list the apartment details of registration, for example : HUTB-123456).
