I have visited Sitges and this beach for 4 years now. Its a wonderful place. The water is clean and every year it does not disappoint, strong waves, falls quickly to 1.5 meters and stays that way. Its lovely to swim. Clothing is option on this beach so if you are prudish or dislike nudity then stay well away. At... More

The beach is fairly easy to access. It had a public toilet and showers, should you need them. It also has a small restaurant which offers a variety of foods and the service is friendly and good.

We didn't realize but this beautiful beach next to the Melia hotel is a nude beach. Water is clean when we went and access is not very handicap friendly. Part of it isn't gay beach too .

Playa Nudista Cala Balmins is a little paradise beach. you can either use the facilities as parasols and beds as well as simply lay on the sand. there is also a Cheringuito with food and beverages.

We only visited here once in 2015 and were so surprised with how relaxed it was compared to the main gay beach we came back here nearly every day this year. The beach cafe offer great salads so lunch was easy. Loungers available and the beach staff are really helpful. It's relaxed and friendly whether naked or not. Gay and... More

My favourite beach in all of Sitges. It's a mixed/gay nudist beach that attracts all types, families, couples and singles. If you're happy to see people wandering around with nothing on in all shapes and sizes then you will love this beach. Swimwear is optional so you don't feel you have to be nude. And there is a very good... More

Nice nude beach between the marina and church of Sant Bartomeu. Easy access. Good sand. Few vendors. Food & beverages available at the end closest to the marina.
