This beach is almost 160 m long and it’s equipped with the typical spanish chiringuito (small bar on the beach). This is the place to be for sporty people because here you’ll find a kayak school where you can take different clases or just rent a kayak or a paddle board and have some fun in the water. There is an access ramp for disabled.

From Aiguadolç Beach you’ll be in Barcelona in a blink of an eye

Aiguadolç is a small triangle-shaped beach located in an urban center just outside of Sitges, it’s mainly a naturist beach and you have to be an animal lover because it’s one of the few beaches that allows dogs.

It’s located next to the Harbour of Aiguadolç and this is very good news! There is a new ferry conecting Barcelona and Sitges in only 30 minuts. The company offering this service is Bluemar Ferries and they will connect the two cities with between four and six daily connections with prices from 17 euros for a single ticket. Sitges and Barcelona are closer than ever and there is no denial, the trip is beautiful!

Beaches outside the city (or not so close)

If it’s hard to get it’s going to be worth it!

That’s how we would describe L’home mort beach.

Gay naturist beach, nudist mainly formed by the Home Mort beach and the Roses Beach. It is accessed by a difficult trail that will take you between 30 minuts from the city to 1 hour (depending on how fast you are, of course!) But the reward is that this beach won’t be completly full, even in summer days there is privacy, you could almost call it your own private beach. Its located below the railway line and south of the Atlantis nightclub.

TIP: Wear good walking shoes, it’s not the best idea to walk to this beach on your flip-flops you will probably hurt yourself and scratch your feet!

And the good news is: Even though the beach is far it has a chiringuito! (You will notice that the Spaniards really apreciate having a beer after a long working day or just because… 😉

How to get there: To go to desenrocada you have to start walking from where the “Atlantida Club” used to be. From there starts a sandy/rocky trial that follows the train rail in direction of Vilanova i la Geltrú. You’ll have to walk in that direction more or less half and hour untill you see the beach.
