Primer Bany de L'Any 2014. New Years Day Swim Barcelona 2014. The first swim of the year is a fun if chilly way of celebrating the New Year in Barcelona. This popular first swim of the year is called 'Primer Bany de l'Any!' and celebrates its 17 edition on 1st January 2012. It takes place in Barcelona at the Sant Sebastià beach in front of the Club Natació Atlètic in Barceloneta (see location details below.) Participation is free and no registration is necessary. If you register at the club reception, however, then you will get a hot shower in the club house and a race diploma after the race. The sea temperature will be around 14C and the air can be as high as 18C, depending on the sun. Around 400 happy bathers usually take the plunge and in 2014 the Club Natacio Atletic Barcelona is hoping for record numbers. See pictures of the Barcelona New Years swim on the links below.
