Time Out says
In the early 20th century, this area of the coast around Mar Bella featured baths that survived until the 1940s when they were destroyed by storms. At that time, this stretch of beach enjoyed prestige among the locals, but fell into decline in the mid-19th century. The renovation that started around the time of the 1992 Olympic Games recovered the beaches of the Mar Bella and Nova Mar Bella. The first combines the most varied ambience. In addition to a nudist area, at the far end of the beach is a playground (check out the original slide), where children can play. You'll also find people playing friendly games of football or volleyball.
