So many positives. Only about five minutes walk north from the centre of town is this spectacular cove that is an official nudist beach. With its easy access along the sand and its rocky backdrop this is a delightful spot even on a windy day. Wonderful to find it is is not just a male beach. Wish I lived closer... More

Nice big beach with enough space to lay down, apart from the very busy week in October when it is full of Bears! Sheltered from the wind (normally) and a nice gentle slope to walk into the sea. Sometimes a few fish but beware jellyfish in May.

This delightful beach sits a short walk from the main beaches of Sitges. It is a clothing optional beach and popular with both locals and Gay visitors. There is a safe way down to the beach passed a cafe or some choose to clamber down a rocky outcrop. There is a friendly and welcoming vibe here and straight and a... More

Been to many beaches all round the world. This beach is so laid back. Sand and great comfortable sun beds. The sea is perfect. No stones, hardly any tide, shallow to enter, no weed, no jelly fish when we have been, no s***, and so warm even in September. Love it!!

This beach can get very busy in holiday season but can also be a lot of fun as long as you aren't offended by nudity. Easy to get to and definitely safe for swimming.

Fun beach with lovely water and soft sand. Main way into the beach is a paved path that goes past a bar at one end, other end of beach you must climb down a path and some rocks. Was here during a gay bear event and it was full of fun friendly people, mostly gay but even the straight people... More

Have been coming to Balmins for years and love it. Surprisingly some reviewers seem to have an issue with seeing older people naked but surely the whole point of a nudist beach is that it is for everyone irrespective of their age. Anyway, it's a lovely friendly beach within easy walking distance of the town. It has a nice little... More
