A short set of images taken on a walk around the mouth of the River Besòs. This ought to be premium beach front in Barcelona, but a long history of industrial use means that much of it is a dramatic change from the pristine tourist beaches in Barceloneta and around Port Vell.The environment has improved since the removal of the old sea jetties, but there is still clear evidence of heavy drug use and the only “clean” spaces are where the sea itself washes away the human detritus.

Paths are mainly used by runners and cyclists during the day.

Beaches are cleaner towards Badalona, but very little used at this time of year.
