Last weekend saw some beautiful weather grace the shores of Sitges. We received many requests and questions from visitors already here, on how to get to the second Gay beach in Sitges – Playa del Muerto. Some people didn’t know it even existed.
First, head down to the end of the main promenade, twoards the Terrmar Hotel. On a warm day this can take anything up to 30 mins dodging rollerbalders, skaters, gay couples, buggies and old ladies! Alternatively you can take a taxi from the train station for EUR 10 approx.
Follow the train tracks by the sea. Don’t be tempted to take a short cut through the tunnels. The trains run at over 200kph here. Be careful!
You will know you are on the right track, padon the pun, when you begin to see the grafitti marking out the “Gay Zone”.
Take a left by this sign which points to Playa del Muerto. The beach has been popular with gay and naturist tourists since the early 1930’s when Sitges had a more bohemian feel.
The beach is a little bit pebbly so you will need your flip-flops.
There is a snack bar which offers cold drinks and sandwiches. Expect to pay a premium as its the only one for miles.
Accross the train tracks is the gay crusing zone. Just follow this sign until you hit the woods.
The wooded area attracts all ages and types. It is busy all year round, mostly in the afternoons and early evenings.
During Summer expect to see all sorts day and night!
