This is a urban beach with all the services, near bars, restaurants, showers... The sand is really very fine and that makes seawater a bit trouble, but it is perfectly clean. In front of this beach a big battle was held the 1st July 1642 and there is a fireship who sank only 80 m far from the shore.

The Sitges beaches are mostly narrow and crowded, this beach near Sausalito is a little wider and with less people. Ideal for families. Also you have the Terramar nearby to have good rises.

There are several beaches in Sitges and this is the one our family enjoyes the most. it's a walk down the boardwalk from the center of town, so less crowded than many of the others. It's clean and calm and it has bathroom and outdoor shower facilities. You can rent lounge chairs and a "toldo" sun shade and there's a... More

Clean public beach, not too crowded during the week. A 30 minute drive from the center of Barcelona.

If you want to go to the beach, and you don't want to go outside Sitges, I recommend this part of the beach. It's not far, but it's less packed than in the city center by the church. If possible, I really recommend going to some of the beaches outside Sitges. Many of them have little snack shops and parasol... More

We really enjoyed our day trip on the train from Barcelona to the beaches of Sitges. The train ride is about 35 minutes and easily navigated. The beaches were clean and Sitges it self was a beautiful city and a wonderful break from Barcelona even if just for the day.
