Whether you like to eat great food, enjoy art and culture, or just sit back and relax this beautiful corner of the world has it all taken care of. To get you in the mood for the long Spanish summer we’re going to take a look at some of the best beaches Sitges has to offer, and introduce you to their unique individual charms.
Platja de les Anquines
At 160 metres long and 50 metres wide there’s more than enough space to sit back and relax even if you have the little ones with you. Nestled in a westerly cove the Anquines of-fers a quiet and secluded place where you can get away from the crowds and soak it all in.
The water is crystal clear and the shelter from the tides makes the sea gentle and calm. Ideal if you want to be able to let the kids paddle with peace of mind. There’s a beach bar for any refreshments and plenty of options when it comes to hiring some shade. Deck chairs, parasols, and awnings can all be rented for the day at little cost.
Platja de la Fragata
In the shadow of the town’s main church lies the Platja de la Fragata – one of the most popular beaches in the area. The central location makes it a lively hub where you can mix with tourists and locals alike so that you can really take in the atmosphere. Young families and youngsters of all ages are assured of plenty of entertainment, both on the sand and in the sea.
Volleyball nets and pedalos offer plenty of fun for those of you keen to work up a gentle sweat in the Spanish sun before you head home to sample the delights of your Sitges rent-al property.
Platja de la Riberia
For those of you who like to stay central and just lie back and soak up the sun’s rays with a good book then this could be the place for you. The Riberia is known as one of the busiest beaches in the area due to its size and location. There are plenty of sun loungers to get comfortable on and because you’re so central there’ll never be far to walk for a glass of your favourite tipple.
Ask any of the locals in Sitges and they’re sure to recommend taking to the water and try-ing some sailing. This will give you a newfound appreciation for the skill the fishermen use to reel in the catches of the day.
Platja de la Riera Xica
Last but not least we come to the Riera Xica – a narrow sandy beach located near the Vin-yet residential area in Sitges. It’s an ever-popular choice with the locals that comes com-plete with a couple of bars and plenty of space to rest and relax. If you want to immerse yourself in the local culture come the summer then this could be the place to go.
