I used to go to Ribeira beach but some of my friends regularly used Balmins so I thought I would try it. It's a 15 minute walk up the hill from San Sebastián beach. It's worth the walk as it's a chilled out beach. There are two coves. The first beach has a cafe selling sandwiches and beer etc. this... More

Two small bays tucked just under the Melia hotel and right by the marina. The first part has a cafe and portaloo. This part of the beach tends to fill up with families. A little further on, the more secluded bay is pretty much men-only and mostly nudist.

Great beach for relaxing and swimming only a short walk from the Melia hotel or the town center. The water is warm and shallow. Plenty of sun loungers for hire. Attracts a great mixed crowd of friendly guys and families.

And no one is bothered. A fabulous, mixed nude beach which is suitable for everyone. A short walk from the town it is well with the effort. Strip off or don't no one minds.

A very nice beach, great beach bar with fairly comprehensive stock, and a nice restaurant just overlooking the beach itself, friendly staff, and friendly people on the beach in general, mix of families and singles so it all feels nicely relaxed.

I loved this beach, individual choice if you choose to wear bathers or not! Clean, very shallow waters and not too busy. Nice beach bar too, friendly and welcoming. I would definitely recommend this beach.

I'm summer it is more gay and for Bear week apparently you can't move nor see the sand for bears but in May it's very mixed and great to have a nudist beach so close to town about 10 mins amble. The beach bar is great and friend. La Caleta is just off the beach but does great sea food.

It was a surprised for me to see naked people at first. Then I realized that there are many homosexuals who keep going to the same place: so one part of the beach is a mixture - naked and in bathing suits, another part -90 % gays. You do not have to take your clothes off. Also I liked the... More

small but clean safe and great beach bars and massage's. I visit Sitges every year to spend time with my friends and can honestly say Balmins is by far my favourite hot spot.
