Real nudist beach in the heart of town
Sep 2020
Love this beach.
I go there every day that it’s sunny.
Even it’s protected from the wind and the sun shines so it is always a great choice.
Love having a wild beach so close to town.
It’s nudist and honestly sex does happen there quite often

Relaxing, Friendly, Safe
Jul 2020 • Couples
This place is a group of coves rather than a long beach. One is large and there are two smaller ones that can be reached by walking in the shallow sea. This popular gay friendly beach is clean, sandy and well loved. The beach offers plenty of facilities in a relatively small area did get a little crowded, especially in the current environment. There is a beach bar, serving food. Vegetarian friendly dishes and local tapas, plus numerous sandwiches, fresh salads and tortillas. We'll be back for sure.

Great Beach with Food and Beverages
Sep 2019
I was there during Bears Week so it was exceptionally busy. It is a nice sand beach with gentle slope into the ocean. It has loungers for rent but you had to be there early. During high tide of course the beach is reduced but everyone was accomodating to squeezed in. It was really friendly and was a good time. The food was pricey but that is to be expected from a beach location. Within easy walking distance from central Sitges.

Day out at the nude beach
Sep 2019 • Solo
I stumbled across this beach somewhat by accident, purely by walking down past the church, so in terms of accessibility I would say very easy to find. I was unprepared to go to the beach, so bought a towel on street and headed down to the beach.
When I went, the beach was not at all crowded - obviously I cannot speak for the middle of summer but even in September it was hot and sunny and there was lots of room. The beach itself is sandy, if a little dirty with cigarettes.
I was in the rockier area on the side which certainly seems like the gayer area. I felt very comfortable putting my stuff down and stripping off in front of the other men, however I would say that it does demand a decent amount of self confidence to do so, so to those who are not happy with their body, you may well feel less comfortable here.
Overall, a very nice place to go which I would strongly recommend to visitors to Sitges of any sort.
I will certainly be coming back :)

Good beach!
Jul 2019
Varied beach of clothing/non clothing bt I've seen many families there - usually sunbathing by the excellent beach bar! Worth a treck through the town to get to . Be aware that like ALL Sitges beaches, if you hire a sun lounger and an umbrella every day of your holiday your Euros will deplete quick!

Good mixed beach - everyone welcome

Close enough to town to be an easy walk, but not too close so there is a (small) sense of adventure in getting there

Beautiful beach but water quality variable
Sep 2019 • Couples
This is a very popular beach which is usually packed in August and September. It is well worth visiting at other times of the year. This summer the water quality has been very variable – a mixture of rotting seagrass and plastics. Workers have been on the beach every morning trying to clear the shore but very difficult clear the water! Very friendly beach bar for snacks and drinks.
