Hello again from the País Vasco! While I’m off enjoying my vacation in the north of Spain, I have a photo to share from the Catalan coastline – in Sitges.
Sitges is a beach town to the south of Barcelona. In about half an hour to forty minutes, the train whisks you away to beautiful sandy beaches, miles of clear blue water, and a small city dotted with pretty old buildings. It’s definitely not your average Barcelona platja; as nice as it is to bike down to the beach in 15 minutes, the city’s beaches are stuffed to bursting all summer long. ‘Relaxing’ may not apply in all (most) cases when it comes to Barceloneta!
Ah, and one more thing about Sitges – it’s home to one of the craziest Carnaval parties in all of Spain. The mix of a beachfront location, a thriving gay party culture, and an exuberant holiday leads to some rather enjoyable celebrations. If you’re ever around Barcelona in February, I highly suggested that you check out Carnaval in Sitges!
