Where are the best beaches in Sitges?

    Sitges is not a city, but more of a small town or large village.

    Sitges beaches fall either side of the iconic Sitges Parish Church, on the promenade 5 – 10 mins from the station.
    ‘San Sebastian Bay beach’ then the ‘2 beaches’ either side of the Sitges Marina to the left when looking at the Med (East).

    Beaches to the right (West) run continuously along the front, promenade, differing slightly in depth. Some attracting too many drink seller, some with basic kiosks and others with lively beach bars. And some, towards the Terramar at the far right (West), with rocks to protect the shore a little from waves.

    Walking route from the station:
    Turn left past the road almost opposite the station and into the first road on the right. ‘Carrer de les Ànimes’ to the end, will take to all the way to ‘San Sebastian Bay beach’.

    Alternatively, turn right out of the station, cross the road and take first left into Calle Isla de Cuba (Cuba street). Walking down there you’ll pass El Xalet on the right – one of the best restaurants in Sitges (IMHO), set in a beautiful garden. At the bottom of the street turn right onto Calle Jesus. You’re now in the heart of town. Walk to the Cap de last Vila (town square – small!). Cross the square into Parellades and take any of the streets on the left (you can see the sea from the top of the streets). This will be a longer (but very enjoyable) walk because it passes the many shops and bars on the way.
