Good beach, get there early though to grab a lounger. It's very clean with little rubbish on the sand. The little shack provides food and drink alcohol as well. It's never a disapointing day at balm ins, there's always something great to see ;-)

It's an excellent beach to visit. Not very far from the town center, within walking distance. The beach is great for a walk and nice during summer months.

Loved these little coves ad the larger Gay area I visited with my son, We paid for umbrella and sunbeds on the 2nd day for me far more comfortable than sand. Lovely beach and water were warm with gentle waves. I felt quite comfortable without clothes though this seemed to be optional. Would certainly go there again and recommend. perfect.

Within strolling distance from the town, a few hours lounging around here is a pleasure. 1st section is primarily couples, some with kids, other area mainly single men. Reasonable bar with snacks, but do cover up! Take a moment to call into the walled graveyard, you will appreciate visitors when your time comes @

This is the best beach as you can find shade or shelter from the wind. There is a small beach bar during high season.

Nice private beach with a comfortable crowd. It is a nude beach but is not awkward and is a place to hang out all day and enjoy the sunshine, paly paddle ball, and swim.

This beach is very crowded from July to September but is quiet and peaceful out of season. Just spent a few warm February days relaxing here!

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
