A holiday in Sitges means some serious beach-time, and the town does not disappoint, with seventeen clean, safe beaches within its boundaries. Families should head to Platja de la Fragata which has volleyball nets and pedalo hire. All beaches are LGBT-friendly but the main gay beach is Platja de la Bassa Rodona. The two nudist beaches are Platja d'Aiguadolç and Platja dels Balmins - their mountainous backdrop also makes them Sitges’ prettiest. Get away from beaches and spend a day exploring the town’s culture. The most interesting museums are the Museu Romantic, which includes an extensive doll collection; Museu Cau Ferrat, with some excellent glass and ironwork artefacts, and Museu Maricel which boasts a fine collection of maritime-themed art. The main annual events are the Sitges Film Festival, a major international fantasy and horror festival, with recent attendees including Anthony Hopkins and Quentin Tarantino, and Sitges Carnival. The carnival is one of the world’s largest, attracting over 250,000 people. The gay carnival happens the week before, so prepare for a full fortnight of dancing, music and general mayhem!
