Between the sea and the hills, the region of Garraf, south of Barcelona, hides one of the best-kept secrets of the Golden Coast, Sitges. The town of Sitges' main attraction is the large number of clean sandy beaches. Fifteen fine golden sand beaches with their pristine waters along more than 2.5 miles of city coastline and seven beaches in the municipal district make Sitges one of the best places in the Mediterranean to sunbathe and enjoy the sea. Yearly, the European Union awards the blue flag eco-label to several of Sitges' beaches, a credit to their high environmental quality and healthy waters. As a result, tourists christened Sitges as "The Golden Beach of the Mediterranean Sea".
Begin your adventure with an approximately 1 hour scenic ride to Sitges. Soak up the sun, swim in the salty sea or simply join in a game of beach volleyball, soccer or experience a water sport.
