Beautiful Spanish Beaches

Spanish beaches

Spanish beaches abound, of course. I went to Sitges (SEE-ches), just a short train ride from Barcelona, and loved it. Here's me waving to you from the beach in a bathing suit that was way too conservative for the scene. I didn't care, I was in my happy place in a big way.

There are beaches in Barcelona, of course. It's right on the water. But they are not as beach-y as one might like unless you get a bit out of town. We hopped on a train in BCN and were at Sitges in less than an hour. You disembark at the train station in town and it's an easy five-minute walk to the beach from there.

As you can see, relaxation abounds. This is Saucy in one of the many cafes that line the Sitges beaches. I recommend that you think ahead about what to do with your stuff. You can rent lockers or just keep money and a room key stashed somewhere. There are a few pick-pocketing opportunists, so you don't want to leave your stuff unattended while you frolic in the surf.

What to wear on Spanish beaches: not much!

Here is a modestly dressed gentleman at Sitges. Many people had on much less, and I envied them. Get out your thong and go crazy! There's skin galore at Sitges and you don't need to be modest. (You also don't have to be skinny to strut your stuff, FYI.)

My happy place

Spanish beaches

One of the most magical moments of my life happened right there. I'd been hanging out with Saucy all day, frolicking in the surf and having the occasional beer, and it was time to shower. I walked out to the end of the pier to the free showers, and stood there in what seemed like the middle of the Mediterranean letting the cool water flow over me, washing away the salt and sand.
