Ah, hanging out at the Surf House, breathing in the salty sea air and sampling all the menu has to offer has got to be a favourite thing to do in Barceloneta. The burgers, tuna tartare, sandwiches, salads, nachos and cakes are outstanding, and a great reward after running, cycling, walking or just lying around at the beach nearby. Definitely check the place out at night too, when the friendly bar staff serve up an array of scrumptious cocktails.
At Surf House you get the feel you're in a Southern California surfer hangout where there's a huge dose of a good time. The best thing about it is the mega terrace: a space touched by the hand of God just metres from the beach with a view that could make you happy just to be in the moment.
Don't turn your nose up at strange-sounding concoctions at the bar: the lychee, watermelon and ginger infused with rosemary is invigorating, refreshing and a big dangerous since the taste of the alcohol is perfectly masked. This is one of the jewels on the short but imaginative drinks menu. They also mix up the classics, but if you open yourself up to suggestions, you'll enjoy a colourful and stimulating beverage the poshest places would be happy to create. If you're abstaining, the smoothies and shakes are excellent as well.
