Gay Travel Guide to Sitges 2014, Gay friendly hotels in Sitges

Click here for Sitges Gay Bars and Clubs 2014

Intro:
Everyone has heard of Sitges. The reality is somewhat different to what I was expecting. Where was the sleaze? Where were the debauched goings on that the resort is famous for?
Sitges is actually very nice!

Situated 30km south of Barcelona, it's a traditional Catalonian coastal town replete with its old buildings and narrow streets, not to mention an exquisite cliff top church and miles of palm fringed sandy beaches. Sitges is well-recognised as being a gay beachside paradise, with ample gay bars and venues in the pebbled village streets, a gay beach, and a large gay resident population. The nightlife is very good, there are some lovely restaurants and the locals are friendly, obviously appreciating the value of the pink tourist pound. So along with Barcelona, you've got two fantastic gay destinations on top of each other. The town is filled with gay bars, some good clubs and some fantastic restaurants. Like Maspalomas In the Canaries, Sitges even has it's own carnival and Gay Pride festival.

How to get there:
Cheap Flights Barcelona is the nearest airport to Sitges however many of the budget airlines will fly you into Reus which isn't quite as glamorous. Many UK regional airports offer cheap direct flights to Barcelona and from many European cities as well. Check out the many discount flights/holiday packages now available on cheapflights.co.uk, Easyjet or Ryanair. Flights to Barcelona from the UK take about 2 hours making it an ideal destination for a quick weekend break. To get to Sitges from the airport take the airport train or buses which take you into Barcelona within 20 minutes. The time interval between trains is about 30 min. Get on at the Central Railway Station "SANTS" in Barcelona and from take a train to Sitges (trains leaving direction Tarragona or Vilanova i La Geltru). Trains leave about every 30 minutes. If you take a taxi, the cost used to be around £30.

 

Given the demise of the traditional UK gay travel agent / gay package holiday you'll probably need to organise your own holiday accommodation. These days with the internet is it easy to do, but is worth doing well in advance as Sitges tends to fill up quickly in summer as well as on on Sitges festival weeks, British bank holidays etc. I've listed many of the most popular gay friendly hotels on this page and there are many more to choose from on Booking.com or Late Rooms and you might even get a deal.

Hotel Calipolis and gay beachThe gay beach (La Playa de la Bossa Rodona) is clean and compact and but is littered with sunbeds for hire. The beach situated virtually in front of the Calipolis Hotel, is always very busy with locals and tourists alike and there's plenty of 'talent' to admire. As well as the beach there are plenty of shops, many gay owned offering to sell you a tiny pair of trunks or fancy top to get you noticed.

Further from the main town, about 3km, is the Del Muerto nudist beach. Again it was busy and there was ample evidence of cruising etc... Be careful though there are a lot of regular tourists too! To get there you have to go to Atlántida disco and follow the railway track. The first bit of the beach is mixed whereas further along is predominently is gay. "Things" go on in the wood next to the beach.

Eating Out: Eating in Sitges is easy, whatever the budget, from a basic bar snack to some impressive Spanish, French and Italian bistros. There are several beach side cafes and if you just want to drink there are vendors traversing the beach all day with beer and soft drinks. Casa Hildalgo (C/ San Pablo, 12 - tel 93.894.38.95) offers an excellent menu specialising in seafood. The El Xalet hotel restaurant was recommended to us although it was closed when we were there. A couple of restaurants we can particually recommend are "Al Fresco" (Pau Barrabeitg 4, Tel: +34 93 894 0600) and Gabriel (C/Sany Gaudenci, 9 - Tel: +34 93 894 3046) which served traditional french cooking. Food was excellent in both and due to their popularity you will probably need to book a table. - We tried a couple of the other gay friendly restaurants and have to say we were fairly disappointed with the food. A much better bet is the St Maria restaurant on the sea front just along from the Calipolis hotel. Excellent food. The locals were queuing up most nights which is always a good sign.

Sitges Festival Diary 2014
Sitges Carnival 2014 - 25th Feb the 5th of March 2014 - the main parades taking place on Sunday 2nd and Tuesday 4th March.
Acknowledged by the straight and gay press as Spain's wildest party, the Sitges Carnival will entertain even the most demanding visitor. Its most popular days see the streets of the fishing village-cum-popular gay resort packed with around 250,000 revellers - Catalonians, French, English, Italians and Germans, all dressed to the nines and ready to party.

Sitges Pride 2014 - One huge week of parties, performance and shows, Sitges Gay Pride 2014 runs from 12th - 16th with the main parade on Sunday June 15th @ 5pm. Once again, this looks as if it is going to be great fun.

Fiesta Major SitgesFiesta Mayor 2014
August Bank Holiday. 'Fiesta Mayor' means 'Main Carnival', and is in celebration of Sitges's patron saint, Sant Bartolomeu. A fantastic firework display on the sea front, followed by a booze filled parade through the town centre.
The total disrespect for safety is what makes it so exciting. Fire crackers are being lit left, right and center and aimed in every direction. Lots of strapping spanish lads, full of booze, rampaging through through the narrow streets of Sitges, setting off fireworks and banging on drums. Very sexy. The town gets full over the August Bank holiday so book this week early.

Gay friendly hotels & guesthouses in Sitges

There is plently of holiday accommodation in Sitges including a number of hotels / apartments which are exclusively gay. We have stayed in the Romantic Hotel on several occasions which is situated in the heart of the old town and normally fully booked thoroughout the summer months. The hotel is "very gay" with an attractive bar, breakfast rooms and garden area. The bedrooms however tend to be very basic, lacking air conditioning and having tiny bathrooms and could do with some money being spent on them. Another more modern hotel popular with gay men athough not officially gay is the Calipolis. This has the benefit of being situated directly over the road from the gay beach on the sea front. It also have proper air conditioning, modern bathrooms, and usually satellite TV in each room.

Given the increase in popularity of Sitges as a popular gay hoilday destination it is worth booking early to avoid disappointment.
