Sitges

Mainland Spain's 'numero uno' gay holiday destination, Sitges is justly famous for its laid back, liberal and happy approach to life - who or whatever you are.

The choice of many Spaniards for their own holidays, Sitges has remained a favoured gay holiday destination for years, with many visitors choosing to return year after year (after year...) and we can't blame them.

The town offers all that any holidaymaker could ever want - a vibrant, more upmarket gay scene than most other gay holiday destinations, popular beaches (including a busy centrally located 'clothed' beach for the textiles and an equally busy nudist beaches and neighbouring cruising area for those who want to bare all) and a pleasantly cool, sophisticated ambience to top it all off.

A short 30 minute train ride away is the jewel in northern (some would say all of) Spain's cultural heritage - Barcelona. If you've not been before, a day or night should be put on your list as a must - even if it does mean tearing yourself away from the beach!

SEASON: SUMMER ONLY

The resort: Being a compact resort means that most of our accommodation is located in the centre of SITGES, leaving you with the towns bars, shops and restaurants almost immediately on your doorstep. Please keep in mind that being central and compact means that some street noise is usually inevitable, but not necessarily excessive. A couple of hotels (the Los Globos and Subur Maritim, for example) are located in a leafy suburb called El Vinyet and are about a 10 - 15 minute walk from the town centre. The towns gay clothed beach is in the centre of town and is therefore just a few minutes walk from most hotels. The main gay nudist and cruising beach is a couple of miles south of the town and should take about a 40 minute walk - people with walking difficulties may find some parts of the paths leading to the beaches difficult.

Sitges is 'in season' during the summer months only, with it's busiest period from late May to late September.
