We’ve just returned from a lovely short break to Sitges.

Located south of Barcelona, it has been described as the Saint-Tropez of Spain thanks to its glitzy beach crowd and lively nightlife. It's known for its beaches and seafront promenade which is lined with grand mansions. The compact old town and surrounding streets are filled with shops, restaurants, and many gay bars and nightclubs. It’s also a great alternative from staying in Barcelona as there are frequent trains which take about 30minutes.

We stayed in Sitges' Marina area which is located slightly outside of the centre, in an area called Port d'Aiguadolç. It’s a location dedicated to yachts, boats and all of the glamour that comes with them. The marina's seafront is lined with bars and restaurants, all of which have an outdoor terrace. We liked this area as it has a quieter atmosphere & the walk into the town is only around 20 minutes.

Going in April meant it was not too busy & we were very lucky with the weather as it was around 24c every day with not a cloud in the sky….. normally April averages around 17-18c. A great short break, now I am prepared for our Summer (if we get one ??).
