Sitges Gay Beaches Guide 2024

Sitges has 22 different beaches, 3 of them gay, with one located in the centre of town and two nudists beaches at either end of the village!

Sitges Gay beaches

The beaches of Sitges are one of its top attractions. From nudist beaches to cruising beaches there is something for everyone!

Dotted along the Sitges coastline, between the parish church and the Terramar hotel are some of the most beautiful beaches you will find in Spain. All of these beaches offer sun loungers for rent, showers and little huts selling refreshments. There are 3 gay beaches, but be aware that most beaches are mixed.

Playa De la Bassa Rodona

1. The Gay Beach – Playa De la Bassa Rodona

Directions: Turn right when you get to the sea front. The beach is located between the Life Guard Station and Picnic restaurant.

The main Gay Beach is La Playa De La Bossa Rodona, directly below the Picnic Restaurant, opposite the Hotel Calipolis. Over the past number of years it has been attracting more of a straight clientele, but it still is packed with gay boys during the peak season. You will know when you get there! Its not difficult to miss the bronzed bodies, the skintight speedos and the designer glasses and beach towels.

Beware though; the beach hawkers and masseurs will constantly bombard you with their offers of continuous refreshments and various massage treatments. And watch your belongings. Remember, bags go missing when you go swimming!

2. Gay & Mixed Nudist / Naturist Beach – Playa De Las Balmins

Time: 10 minute walk from the town center

Directions: Turn left when you get to the sea front. Walk past the church and continue on close to the coast. Stay on the path next to the beach. Pass a long beach strip. Climb a hill past a cemetery. The beach is then right in front of you. The first two sections of the beach are where the gay boys let it ALL hang out.

The nudist beach beyond the church at Platja Sant Sebastia, Platja dels Balmins (for mixed nude bathing) and Platja d’Aiguadolc. has become a popular alternative for those Gay Boy’s in the know. And whilst it is encouraged to go nude, no one will make you take your speedos off, unless you want them to of course.

Playa del Muerto Sitges

3. Gay & Mixed Nudist / Naturist Beach – Playa del Muerto

Time: 10 Minute Taxi to L’Atlantida disco (€10) and 10 minute walk, or 50 minutes walk from the centre of Sitges.

If you prefer to tan allover, away from the gaze of the nosey tourists (who do bring cameras by the way) and you feel like a brisk walk, then make the journey to the nudist beach just beyond the Terramar Hotel. The first of the beaches is about 10 minutes walk past the L’Atlantida disco. It is a mixed beach, a little bit pebbly for our taste, but worth a look. There is a beach bar serving a wide range of snacks and drinks.

The second beach, Playa Del Muerto, is exclusively gay. It also has a small bar, however the pebbles on this beach make it very uncomfortable. Its popularity is in the large forest behind the train tracks, which are full of gay men looking for sex during the summer. Be sure to look in every nook and cranny as you never know what you might find!

You can get to both of these beaches by bike, on foot or by taxi. A taxi to the L’Atlantida disco costs around €10, but you will then need to finish the journey on foot, which takes about 10 minutes. If you decide to walk, it will take you approximately 50 minutes to get there. But it is well worth it!

A word of caution. You can either walk by the train tracks of over the mountain hills to get to the Gay Beach. But beware. The hills are very rocky (you wont get a bike over them unless you are one of the mad Spanish boys who like to show off on their dirt bikes) and the trains run past the tracks at 130km per hour.
