“Relaxed beach”
Review of Playa Balmins

Very relaxed comfortable beach with most nude, some not, no big deal. Worth the short walk from town. Keep walking past the beach and enter from the other side - we made the mistake of climbing down as soon as we saw it. The water can keep a bottle of Cava cool but watch out for it being buried in sand!

It's about a 15 min walk away from the main part of Sitges. You could say the beach is segmented into 3 areas. 1) Main area for Families - some people will be clothed, some won't. 2) Fewer families and a mixture of gay & straight people, mainly non clothing (but again it's all optional, everyone's laid back so aren't bothered either way). 3) The Cove is mostly gay but there are no rules about who goes where, that's just how it's become - mainly non clothed.

Be careful on Weekends, it will get more crowded than normal because the Barcelonians will descend to get away - but overall it's a great area to chill out and throw your inhibitions away for a few hours.

Don't be shy or offended, no one's looking!

It's a family beach, not officially classified as clothing optional, however, generally accepted. The southern end is usually frequented by the gay community. It's a small friendly cove with a nice snack bar & rental chairs.

nice naturist beach but due to winter bad weather, a bit crowded!

Great nude beach, water shallow, sandy and beds available if wanted. Great bar with good lunch snacks and not too expensive. Well worth a trip
