The Gay Beaches of Sitges

On the Golden coast of the SITGES town, you will find 22 beaches distributed along its stripe of sand. Of those 22 beaches, 3 of them are gay. The gay beaches of Sitges are called Playa de la Bassa Rodona, Playa de las Balmins and Playa del Muerto. Playa de la Bassa Rodona is the main gay beach of Sitges. Bassa Rodona has a fairly thin sand strip, with a length of 285 meters and an average width of 18 meters. It disposes of lifeguards, toilets, and rental facilities for umbrellas, deck chairs, kayaks and also massage services.  The urban beach is cleaned regularly and the calm waters make it a blue flag beach. Right across from the famous Hotel “Calipolis”, the beach is easily spotted for the speedos and tanned masculine bodies. For refreshments, a beach bar and the popular Restaurant Picnic offer a wide variety of drinks and cocktails.

The other two gay beaches of Sitges are naturist. Balmins Beach is situated on the east side of the town, right before the Port D’Aiguadolç. Although it used to be exclusively straight, the wide acceptance of the gay community by the locals soon transformed it into a mixed beach. The nudity at Balmins is not mandatory, meaning you can still enjoy the beach with clothes on. It is possible to enjoy Balmins’ view from the little restaurant on top of it, for those who don’t enjoy the sand.  Playa del Muerto is the third gay beach of Sitges. Also naturist, it is more reserved, at the bottom of a small cliff and further from the city center. Its hard access makes the beach live up to its name: “Dead Man’s Beach”. Car access is possible until the end of the city, from where there are two walking paths to the beach: a short one and a long one. The short one involves a steep path down the cliff, and the long one a path beside the train tracks, which speed limit is 140 kilometers per hour. The trip down to Playa del Muerto takes a while, so you might consider a LONGER STAY IN SITGES to enjoy this and the other beaches.

Both nudist beaches have areas known for cruising. At Playa de las Balmins, the cruising spot is in the tunnel behind it where the train tracks pass through. At Playa del Muerto, the designated area is in the woods behind the train tracks, where it becomes full as the sun sets. In the gay community, cruising is the term to the casual sex partner “hunt”.
