I had visited the beach in Barcelona, and as those who have experienced it know, it is slammed pack and the water is close to factories! I wanted to find a beach away from the city craze, clean sea water and eccentric little restaurants to cater to my needs. Playa de Sitges is a little town about 30 minutes by train from Barcelona. A small walk to a very quaint, serene beach where you wont be bothered by locals selling coconuts and braiding your hair ! Sitges has several nice restaurants on the beach to enjoy, without the tourist fees. This little decorated city captures the culture of Spain without the chaos from a big city. If your looking to spend a serene, peaceful, relaxing day on the beach in Spain. Go to Sitges!
