This is the downtown beach and the one that is likely to be most crowded. But it is also the one that is easiest to get to and the one where you can walk a short distance to food and drink. We like the city access.

€50 for 2 beds and a canopy. €40 for 2 beds and a parasol.

So we went to the Chinese hardware store at the back of town and bought our own sub loungers for €50 each. Borrowed parasols from our hotel (Platjador) who also kindly agreed to dispose of the sunloungers. Total estimated saving €300!!

Sorry sitges but you seem to be on a mission to alienate anyone not on a massive budget, as shown by the absence of anyone under 50.

Having been a visitor to Sitges for many years we were impressed by the changes that have taken place since last years catastrophic start to the season (no beds on the beaches until July!) the new sun beds and parasols are comfortable and look great.Less attractive is the price €40 for 2 beds and parasol quite a leap from €26 ! and a lot to pay every day for a week.The beaches seem to be controlled by large company’s now rather than the smaller franchises ,in fact Sitges Republic seems to hold a long stretch.Gone are the cheery (albeit noisy) drinks vendors,replaced by sullen youths and a rather expensive bar(€12 for a pina colada which consisted of a cup of ice and a small amount of said cocktail) .Having consumed the drink the necessary portaloos have also been replaced by 2 plumbed in toilet one of which was out of order and the other was disgusting having run out of paper by 2pm.Of course the lovely young people tuning the bar were not inclined to replace the loo roll and when I explained the lack a dull eyed female offered me a handful of serviettes !So yes big changes but not all good .

Great beaches and the town is great for people watching. We were here for gay pride parade. Super fun. The town is crowded on the weekends but in June the weekdays are mostly locals. Friendly place.

Sitges has 17 beaches, from family beaches to naturist and gay-friendly beaches.

The most popular and centrally located beaches are Platja de la Ribera, Platja de la Fragata, and Platja de Sant Sebastia.

Even if you are not for sunbathing, you can walk the pleasant seaside promenade next to the beaches.

A beautiful beach, just a stones throw south of Barcelona. We caught the train directly from Barcelona Sants and it was a good price. Worth it for a day out of the city.

Excellent beach. Very clean and plenty of chiringuitos. However sunbed/ parasols hire is very expensive. Also guys brings cocktails to you BUT they are very expensive and contain little alcohol !

Wonderful day spent walking around town and then spending the day on the beach. Chairs and umbrellas (parasols) reasonably priced to rent. Drink service on the beach as well. Clean, nice sand, great water! Many restaurants along the beach-lovely town!

The beaches in Sitges
With excreta abound
From near every type of hound
Salt sea breezes hint at sun-baked urine
The trottoirs, pissoirs
So bring a trowel with your towel
And watch where you sit
Because you just might find yourself nestling in...

First the good. The water is refreshing, the beaches are groomed and the stone jetties help with erosion control. The tireless efforts of the Serveis de Platges de Sitges in maintaining the beaches and waterfront is worth a shout out. They are out in force early and late, picking up the refuse and debris of the previous night's revelry, sweeping, cleaning, maintaining the greenways, and trimming the flora.

The bad. Sitges is understandably a very popular destination for tourists and locals alike. At peak times, the beaches can be packed, parking can be difficult, and the rubbish bins overflowing--with some visitors simply leaving their rubbish on the beach.

And the ugly. There are a lot of dogs. Even though they are not permitted on the beaches during the peak swimming season, this is often blatantly ignored. Many people pick up after their dogs; many do not. A fecal veneer covers much of the waterfront and the stench of urine in the heat and humidity is unbearably disgusting. The swimming is great, but I never leave a towel or anything on the sand; preferring to tuck these items into crevices in the seawall. YMMV depending on your level of tolerance...

Bottom line: I would not bother coming back for the beaches. The town—absolutely!
