The Barcelona beach and waterfront was much more of what I expected a waterfront in a large city to be, touristy and kinda trashy. The beach was packed with people; once you neared the water, you could barely see any sand. As you look far out you can see a large hotel building, which I'm sure costs a pretty penny to stay in but causes quite an eye sore on what could be a much prettier view. We heard the locals complaining about it, and reasonably so. The land out by the water is also much larger and more congested than the strip in Malaga. There were too many sketchy looking side streets and way too many shops and restaurants. We didn't even walk to the end because it didn't seem worth it; it just wasn't very stunning.
