Bars

Parrots
Plaça de la Indústria, 2, 08870 Sitges
Judgement Square. Everyone sits facing into the square and a great place for sundowners to watch the boys walk back from the beach.

Runway | Man Bar | El Horno | Bears Bar | XXL | Bukkake | Cox | Scandal | Bitch Bar | and more
Carrer de Joan Tarrida (Vaseline Alley)
This runs from Judgement Square and is where most of the night bars are. Most nights will be crowded with people drinking out in the alley. Be aware of pickpockets in the crowd and also inside Bukkake.

Restaurants

Izarra Taberna Vasca
Carrer Major, 22, 08870 Sitges
A great lunch spot for tapas and beers. Especially if you’ve gone to Platja del Balmins it’s great on the way back.

Patio
Carrer Bonaire, 26, 08870 Sitges
A nice outdoor restaurant with a set menu. There is an entrance via a passageway off the bar street (Carrer de Joan Tarrida).

Xalet
Carrer de l’Illa de Cuba, 35, 08870 Sitges
A nice outdoor terrace with tables set around a pool of the hotel Xalet. Another set menu classic.

Veggie Garden
Carrer Primer de Maig, 3, 08870 Sitges
Basic but good thali.

El Castell
Carrer de la Carreta, 21, 08870 Sitges
Nice restaurant with great Octopus.

NUM3RIC
Carrer d’en Pau Barrabeig, 1, 08870 Sitges
A lovely menu but a lot of food. There are indoor and outdoor seating so if it’s warm you want an outdoor table in the lovely laneway.

Espaivi – TARRAGONA
Carrer de Santa Anna, 13, 43003 Tarragona
Okay so this is a trek but if you are doing a day trip to Tarragona then this is the only place to lunch. Ceviche is amazing. The staff are super friendly and champagne is inexpensive.

Beaches

Platja de Sitges
Av. Sofia, 08870 Sitges
Sitges Beach (The gay beach with speedo)
Right in front of Pic Nic at the end of Av. Sofia.

Balmins Beach (The gay beach without speedo)

Platja de l’Home Mort
Dead Man’s Beach (The far gay beach without speedo or inhibitions but with a shady forest)
It takes a good 45 mins to walk from Sitges centre or you can;
– get a bus to the Eurostars Sitges hotel and then walk for a bit less through the enchanted forest
– get the tourist train to Hotel Sunway Playa Golf and then walk the rest
– hire a bike to cycle most of the way there and then walk the last bit.

Platja de l’Estanyol
The “nighttime” beach (Midnight walks by the sea)
The experience can be hit or miss depending on police activity and lighting. Watch out for pickpockets.
