Sitges Gay Scene

With its bohemian atmosphere, avant-garde counterculture and vibrant gay scene, Sitges is Mainland Spain’s premium gay holiday destination. Since the town’s first gay disco ‘Trailer’ opened for business more than 25 years ago, gay and lesbian holidaymakers from all over Europe have flocked to the golden seaside resort in their thousands for a summer-long party.

With 20 gay bars, 2 gay nightclubs and 2 gay beaches, summers in Sitges are a time for cruising in the sunshine and enjoying hedonistic fun in a party-town famed for its laid back and liberal atmosphere. Off season, the gay scene quietens down substantially, although Sitges’ annual February street carnival sees the arrival of a large gay and lesbian contingent from neighbouring Barcelona.

The gay bars of Sitges are clustered around three specific areas of town - in and around Calle Dos de Mayo (known locally as Sin Street), just off of Calle Mayor in the old part of Sitges, and in the triangle formed by Calle Espalter, Calle San Francisco and pedestrian zone Parellades. Although some establishments open early to draw in crowds heading back from the beach, the bar scene generally come to life from 11pm onwards. By 3am, it’s time to move on to the late discos at either Trailer or Organic.

Sitges’ main gay beach is the centrally located Playa de la Bossa Rodona, a clothed beach that sits adjacent to the busy cruising boulevard of Passeig Maritim. By day, Bossa Rodona is littered with bronzed bodies soaking up the sun in skin-tight Speedos and designer swimwear. By night, Bossa Rodona’s terraces are a popular place for guys to meet after an evening spent enjoying the bars and clubs of Sitges.
