Sitges Holidays

Show on Map

Sitges is Catalonia’s glamour-puss, with 17 sandy beaches, lots of chic nightlife and a glittering carnival on the checklist, all with easy access to Barcelona.

Miles of golden coastline

There are 17 beaches along Sitges’ coast, and they’re some of the best in the region. You’ll find sporty stretches, complete with volleyball and watersports, as well as quieter coves and nudist and gay-friendly beaches. They have golden sand and calm waters in common, and they’re mostly knitted together with a quiet, cobbled promenade.

Stylish nightlife

Strut down the Street of Sin – Carrer del Pecat – one of the coolest nightspots on the Med. It’s studded with sleek cocktail bars and clubs attracting a crowd of hip young things. There’s a big gay scene here, with an annual Gay Pride event lighting up the town every June.

Culture and carnivals

You can browse quirky art galleries and antique shops around the narrow, cobbled streets behind the waterfront. In the town square nearby there are often live bands and musical events going on too. But they’re just a warm up – during February and March, the town shimmies and shakes its way through one of Spain’s most vibrant carnivals. Expect floats full of dancers, feasts and all-night-long parties.

Insider Tip

If you want to visit all three of Sitges’ museums, it’s a good idea to buy a combined ticket – it’s cheaper than paying to enter the museums separately. Pick them up from any museum’s kiosk.

Best beaches

The Platja de la Fragata is a favourite with families. It’s an upbeat stretch with beach cafés on hand, all watched over by a pretty, whitewashed church. Platja de la Barra is the away-from-it-all option: a sandy cove to the east of the town, with lots of space to sunbathe.

Top sights

Up on a hill above the town, there’s a fortified 11th-century castle that really is something out of a story book. At the Museu Romantic, you can walk through a palatial 18th-century villa, complete with a grandiose ballroom. The artist Santiago Rusiñol, one of Sitges’ most famous residents, founded the Museu Cau Ferrat – a collection of glass and ironware, housed in a pretty whitewashed building.

Out and about

You can rent a sailing boat or join a sightseeing tour from the marina, Port d'Aiguadolç. It’s easy and quick to get to Barcelona – half an hour by train or bus – where you can enjoy world-famous sights and museums. And if you fancy a walk, there’s San Sebastian cemetery on a hill above the town. It’s filled with interesting modernist sculpture, and with widescreen sea views, it’s a lovely spot.

Eating and drinking

This corner of Catalonia is famous for its fish dishes slathered in Xató sauce, made from almonds. Glam sushi places and upmarket bistros line the waterfront, along with plenty of hearty, traditional restaurants. Nem Sitges, a high-end place on Carrer Illa de Cuba, does excellent tapas.

Shopping

Sitges is a great place to buy locally produced cava – there are stalls at the food market, which is on every Friday. The cobbled streets away from the seafront are lined with little fashion boutiques, and a few big brands like Benetton. If you’ve a sweet tooth, the Xocolatl Chocolate Shop is not to be missed, with handmade chocolates in hundreds of flavours!

Nightlife

If you’re looking for a big night out, the Street of Sin is a great place to start, home to Pacha – sibling of the Ibizan super-club of the same name. The street’s lined with a mix of wine bars and cocktail joints, and a few lively clubs. If you’re looking for gay bars, head over to Carrer San Bonaventura, which has a clutch of well-established venues like Man.
