Some are scattered on Sant Sebastià and Mar Bella nudist beaches and also on the busiest La Barceloneta beach.
This is the third year that the police in the Spanish city have the & # 39; robbery kits & # 39; and they spend more every year.
La Barceloneta is the most popular place in Barcelona and at the end of last week, 853 thefts were reported.
To try to tackle the crime issue in uniform and civilian, all 10 beaches in the area patrol during the busy summer season.
In addition to thieves, many people try to sell water, beer and items such as sunglasses on the beach.
In 2019, the police charged more than 9,000 costs for selling drinks on the beach without a permit.

Last month a fight broke out with British tourists on the beach at La Barceloneta where a person attacked a rival with a metal pole before the fight was stopped.
Other sunbathers were filmed and picked up their things and ran for safety while the men exchanged punches.
La Barceloneta has been at the center of tension for years between holidaymakers and locals who say their area has been destroyed.
Last year the Spanish police in Barcelona handed Sagrada Familia leaflets to tourists that they could not guarantee their safety because they & # 39; did not have enough staff & # 39 ;.
The warning was translated into seven languages, including English, French and Italian and came after a total of 86,834 figures from the number of minor thefts for the first eight months of 2018 – an increase of 19 percent over the previous year.
