Sitges Summer Update

The latest from Sitges, Summer 2022.


August and September hotel bookings are already above 2019 levels.


  • August 2022 – Over the past year, Sitges council has been working on a new plan for the Beaches.  The new “beach plan” envisioned having new beach licences granted and new beach bars and beach beds installed by April.
  • Due to various delays (we won’t bore you with the political drama), concessions were not awarded until June.
  • As of Mid July, most of the beaches now have beach services and you can rent beach beds as before.
  • The gay beach has a new  stylish Chiringuito (Beach Bar), known as Sitges Republic
  • Other beach bars with new services include Beso Beach (by the ME Hotel), and Nomada Beach by the port.
  • Beach clubs outside of Sitges currently have the best Services including Soho House in Les Casetes del Garraf (well worth the 9 minute train journey)
  • For a treat somewhere off the tracks, take a taxi to Cala Morisca, (10 mins from Balmins), naturist beach with superb restaurant, unspoilt, spotlessly clean beach
  • UPDATE : Balmins beach will not have a beach bar/bed licence until Easter 2023, however the beach bar, La Caleta is open and quite close by.

After a 14 Million euro refurbishment in 2021, the hotels rooms have been completely refreshed and with 3 pools to choose from, you may never want to leave.
