The White Party, Gay Beach Party, Sitges

This tuesday night is set to be one of the hottest in Sitges, with the White Party taking centre stage at L´Atlántida disco. Remember the white dress code and be sure to get their early! With all those hot men, sand, sea and cocktails… your whites may not stay all that white for long!

Check out the Beach Party page here and be sure to check back on our photo gallery for some photos of the night!

Fiesta Mayor

When: Aug 21st to Aug 27th. Fireworks display on Aug 23rd at 10pm.
Where: All over Sitges.

Fiesta mayor has to be seen to be believed. No other place on earth puts on such a wonderful up-front Fireworks show… You are literally in the middle of it! Just be careful or you might become a firework yourself! Most people wear a hat and a pair of glasses, just in case.

It is a true spectacle. The church forms the backdrop to some spectacular fireworks displays.

Not to mention the street fireworks. Beware of the Dragon and the masked men. They can come out of nowhere, and they take no prisoners when it comes to frightening tourists.

Yes…even in Sitges it rains… sometimes

A storm brewing just outside San Pere de Ribes, 5 minutes outside Sitges

We had our first rainshower today in over 4 months. The raindroplets were huge… it was amazing to see. Having a microclimate we normally don't get much rain here.. it generally passes us by and heads directly to Vilanova. But when it does rain, we get a spectacle like you have never seen.

There is very little to do when it rains, except to sit inside and watch people run, the queens are especially funny… minding those designer flip flops isn't easy in a river of sand, mud and water!

Cars have been know to make their way down this street looking more like boats

But don't worry. With over 300 days of sunshine, you probably don't need to pack your unbrella. Just watch where you park your car or it might wind up in the sea

Gay Beach Party

The Gay Beach Party 2006

Gay Beach Party 2006

This year sees the return of the Gay Beach Partry, now in it's fifth year. We highly recommend it…and it is on a Tuesday night so there is not a whole lot else to do.

The venue is amazing. L'atlantida nightclub simply has to be experienced. The whole atmosphere is electric.

The open air venue just oozes with sexy boys and girls. Great for a party night out.

For further information check out their entry listing on GSG.

Sitges goes Tango Crazy!

TangoThe 13th International Tango Festival takes place in Sitges from July 12th to 16th. The Sitges Tango festival has become the &quot;indisputable summer appointment for tango&quot;.

They have teachers and dancers on hand who can teach you how to dance like a pro… together with a host of spectacular shows made all the more authentic with a great tango orchestra from Buenos Aires.

For further information check out the offical website, TangoSitges.

Gay Tango has taken off in a big way in B.A so it should be interesting to see if we have any gay boys who will dare to strutt their stuff for all to see.

When:&#160; &#160;July 12th to 16th
Where:&#160; El Retiro

An evening of Cluture or Debauchery – You Choose

Strip As of today, July 1'st, Sitges is holding a 3 month cultural extravaganza celebrating the best of what its museums have to offer. Interweaving music, song and art, there are a range of concerts, guided tours and evening receptions to keep you amused during your stay. We particularly like the Roaring Twenties concerts…. a definite must for those who know how to party.

Most of the activities take place around Sitges most famous museums,&#160; the Cau Ferrat Museum, former home of Santiago Rusinol and the Romantic Museum.

For a full list of daily events visit the official tourism website.

Of course if you don't fancy that, or want a bit of a change, then you could always head out later and see one of the lovely strippers at BSide or Privilege. The choice is yours.

Enjoy.

A Concert at Midnight?

Keeping up with its image of style and sophistication, Sitges hosts a series of concerts again this year, all themed with the anniversary of Santiago Rusinol in mind. The concerts are indeed spectacular, with many taking place by the marina. You can purchase tickets in Cap de la Villa every evening and they are reasonably priced, given the quality of each performance.

ConcertLiving, not far from where some of the concerts take place, I can attest to the quality of recent performances….. it is simply amazing opening your doors and sitting on the balcony to hear the amazing sounds drifting over the balmy Summer air.

So if you fancy something different…or less taxing than the constant clubbing, then a midnight concert may be just the ticket! Anyway, given that the party doesn't really start until 2am most nights, you can always head out a little later, still sure in the knowledge that your night has only just begun!

As always, remember to be smart and play safe!

Where: All over Sitges
Time: 11pm or 12pm, depending on Venue

Hot in Sitges

Well Boys!!!! It is hot in Sitges at the moment. We are in the middle of heatwave…and the temperatures are set to rise again tomorrow.

The beaches were packed this Sunday… so packed in fact, that the beach captains took over almost all of the public beach with the overpriced deckchairs… but it was better than sitting on the Sand.

Dsc02100 The usual hotties were out and about (view gallery)..but the straights were outnumbered at last… it only took the Hot weather to make that happen. However most of the pics we took show boys with girls, for some strange reason.

The straight boys were out in force on Friday night, the eve of Sant Joan and fireworks were going off until at least 5am in the morning…. despite the buckets of water being thrown over the balcony on to those below on the narrow streets.

012Of course, Barcelona, being typically Spanish can not make up when Gay Pride starts and finishes, so they decided to run it for a few weeks! Always guaranteed to generate a crowd, check out the website for the latest events.&#160;

LoveballRemember, it is only 30 mins form Sitges. And don't forget The Love Ball…. we especially recommend the Pool Party (video) (site)&#160; …if it is anything like the one we were at in Rio last year, then Spain is in for some HOT fun.

A boy's work is never done… so make sure you are safe and happy when you travel… always be prepared… because, in Sitges, you never know when fortune will smile upon you.

Just try and remember where your hotel room is boys!

Corpus Christi in Sitges

Dsc02872The town of Sitges celebrates Corpus Chisti every year with style! Sections of the major streets are closed to traffic for at least 24 hours.

Then intricate templates are drawn on the road. Neighbours from each street gather into the small hours plucking the petals off Carnation flowers. These petals are then placed on the patterns on the road.

The transformation is amazing. It has to be seen to be believed.I have uploaded an entire photo gallery to Flickr so you can see the before, during and after shots.

The kids get a great kick out of following the giants up the street. The usual mayhem ensues as there is a fight to grab that one last flower petal!

Sitges Fireworks

Fireworks1 The Fireworks I spoke of last week were indeed amazing. I have seen Firework Displays all over the world and whilst this one was small in size, it was spectarular for its sheer intimacy. We were all on the beach in San Sebastian and the fireworks were literally going off right over our heads. Unlike shows in Sydney and Washington where you are far from the action, these fireworks were right on top of us! Every single firework was set off to a musical score and the entire event was organised by one of the world's top fireworks artists, who also happens to live in Sitges.

The fireworks were centred around a barge that was floating a few hundred metres out to sea. Those lucky enough to have a boat of some sort (we did see some boys on a li-lo we must admit) had the best views.

The pre-show event was a little disappointing in that the seating area for the VIPs did tend to block off the view of the spectators who did not have a seat.

All in all, another great reason to look forward to the main festival, 'Fiesta Mayor' in August.
