The town is an ideal destination for travellers who want to combine lazy beach days, with nature rambling and exploring the many cultural and gastronomic attractions the town has to offer.
Sitges is a fashionable resort, but it’s also a popular destination for daytrippers and local holidaymakers, so you won’t get ripped off by inflated tourist prices. The town itself has a cosmopolitan feel; almost a mini version of neighbouring Barcelona. Sitges has a unique personality all of its own, and a twinkle in its eye, which captivates the heart of every visitor. It certainly isn’t discriminating with its warm welcome: friends, couples and families, all feel at home here – our town is one of the most gay-friendly places in the world!
Wandering through the streets, you’ll find architectural periods range from the renaissance to art nouveau; there are several old baronial residences which now house art galleries and museums, and the wonderful Sant Bartomeu and Santa Tecla church, which almost brushes with the Mediterranean. The lovely old town is awash with traditional whitewashed residences, blooms of flowers hang over the terraces, the higgledy piggledy cobbled streets are picturesque and full of local chatter.
The clean golden stretch of sand that fronts the town, makes Sitges an ideal beach holiday destination for families. There are in fact 17 beaches that fall within the area of Sitges, and there’s pretty much a beach to suit everyone! You’ll find water sports, volleyball, pedalos and chiringuitos (beach restaurants), even a golf course! There are also several nudist beaches, which are secluded and outside the main Sitges stretch. The beaches closest to town tend to be the busiest, with local families spending the afternoons with the children on the beach – Spanish families always head for the beach late afternoon, early evening. During the morning you’ll find they are pretty quiet, perfect for taking small children to enjoy a few hours of uninterrupted beach fun.
