With its pleasant year round weather and postcard location between mountain range and Mediterranean Sea, Sitges is the brightest spot on the Costa Dorada. Renowned for its bohemian atmosphere, lively nightlife and attractive beaches, holidays in Sitges offer the chance to experience the Spanish seaside at its unspoilt best.
While most Spanish beach resorts emerged from the tourist boom of the 60s and 70s with monstrous hotel blocks and shoddy beachfront developments, Sitges managed to retain its traditional charm and character. The result is an authentic and historic seaside town, unique to the Costa Dorada and much of Spain.
Holidays in Sitges will invariably focus around the beach, of which there are an impressive 17 spread across the resort. Beaches in Sitges are clean and well equipped with showers and bathing cabins allowing you to enjoy your day at the seaside in comfort. Sun loungers and parasols are available for hire if you plan on lazing around and soaking up the sunshine for a few hours. For more adventurous visitors with sturdy sea legs, pedalos can be hired for an hour at a time.
Away from the beaches, Sitges holidays offer an opportunity to explore the small lanes, cobbled streets and whitewashed buildings of Spain’s most romantic seaside town. Visitors should take the chance to inspect the old villas of the Casco Antiquo (old quarter) and stroll along the palm tree lined seafront promenade at a leisurely pace.
Sitges has three outstanding art museums to peruse during your holiday, the pick of which is probably the Museu Cau Ferrat which houses a fine collection of works by the esteemed Catalan artist Santiago Rusinol. Sitges has a long established artistic history and was once home to both Pablo Picasso and Salvador Dali.
Breaks in Sitges also offer an excellent opportunity to explore the wider region of Catalonia. To the north, Barcelona is amongst Spain’s most vivacious and cosmopolitan cities with a fantastic range of shops, restaurants and important historical landmarks. To the south, Tarragona is an ancient Roman port city with a bullring, amphitheatre and medieval ruins to explore.
