This xiringuito with decor inspired by Easter Island is the perfect place to imagine that the Mediterranean is really in the Pacific, and that the small lapping of waves you might find here are really giant crashing tubes ideal for surfing the day away. On the menu you'll find healthy options (nothing is fried) and a generous cocktail selection. Vai Moana is also one of the few places to have a menu specifically designed for children, with choices like macaroni and mini hamburgers, because Bogatell beach is popular with families. The spot is frequented by happy and sporty types who don't suffer the mundanities of life, like whether their bathing suit is filled with sand.
Eating well with your feet in the sand is possible in Barcelona and along the whole county coastline, especially now that we've travelled from Castelldefels to Montgat in search of the best urban beach bars, or 'xiringuitos'.
