Bears Bears…. Everywhere!

Sitges Bears Week has grown from a group of bears wanting to have a party to an international event that fills the town of Sitges during the first two weeks of September. There are parties and events held throughout the entire village. There is also a dedicated bears village by the beach with shows, dj’s and more.  The event attracts guys of all ages and types and many new friendships are made and old ones rekindled.

Visiting Last Minute? Try the following hotels

Each year we advise people to Book your hotel early as the town sells out and rates increase as the months progress. It is now the most expensive time to visit Sitges. The following hotels have some rooms left:

  •  The Sabatic – Marriott has opened a new hotel in Sitges, a luxury offering on the top of Av Sofia with spacious pool. All rooms have large balconies or terraces. (10 minute walk to the beach).
  • Hotel Antemare – Reopened in July, the hotel has one of the best pools in town (host to the official pride pool party) and reasonably close to the town centre, (10 min walk).
  • ME Hotel Sitges – Rated “Fabulous” with one of the best pools in town. Some think its a little far out, however you can catch the little train and a taxi costs about EUR 8. Rooms are stunning.
  • Dolce Sitges – The only 5 star hotel in town. 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. It is also close to the “Magical Forest” and the first gay beach in Europe, “Playa del Muerto”.
  • Sunway  Playa Golf – Close to the ME Hotel, with two beautiful pools with spacious rooms and apartments and an excellent seafront restaurant.

The Bear Route – bars to visit!

  • Festivities on the first weekend leading up to the opening of the village.  Early evening the bears meet on the streets of C Bonaire and Joan Tarrida with many people gathering on the corner of Bears Bar and visiting the different bars along the streets.
  • The bear village typically arrives on the first Monday of the week. During the weekend and indeed well beyond,  XXL, El Horno, Man Bar, La Villa and Runway form the nexus of “Bear Alley”, the nickname given to Calle Joan Tarrida and a nightly gathering spot for bears from all over the world.
