The Gay Beaches of Sitges

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.

Gay Beach Sitges, Playa Del Muerto

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.

Crazy Summer… Quiet Winter… Two sides of Sitges.

At the moment the weather is still unseasonably warm. The days are a little crisper by Summer standards, yes. But still beautiful weather for wantering the streets of Sitges… during the day or at night.

The streets are certainly quieter, except at weekends where there still seems to be an amazing buzz around the town.

The sky last night was stunning. At this time of year the reflection from the low-sun against the sea creates this amazing pink glow during the sunrise and sunset.

Yes, the beaches get busy, but its great fun and you get to meet some fab boys from around the world. If you fancy some quieter beaches, San Sebastian is beautiful and less touristy.

These boys from Cincinati were here for a few days and wound up staying for 2 weeks in July. This was taken at least 1000 metres from the Gay Beach.. much quieter… but still lots of Gay boys.

And finally the perfect muscle boys… always here in their hundreds during early August… they seem to grow on trees here during the Summer months.

Gay Beach Boy Sitges

Its amazing the things you see on the beaches in Sitges. The weather is still very warm, with yesterday (Sunday) offering us some superb sunshine.
