Sitges Bears Week 2015 Bears Week Sitges 2015
Sitges, gay destination known throughout the world, offers a party in September each year especially for lesser known groups in the homosexual world. The streets of Sitges are filled with hairy, big, or simply older gays and there are lots of organised activities.

Sitges Bears week in September is one of the biggest and most popular Gay Bear festivals in Europe attracting more than 5,000 visitors, bears, admirers, chasers, muscle bears and more. The "Bear Village" may be on the paseo, but the bears are everywhere – Sitges is transformed into a bear heaven for 10+ days.

Bears week Sitges takes place from the 4th to 13th September 2015. The Bear Village will open along the paseo from the 7th to 13th September 2015

Sitges Bears Week has grown from a group of bears wanting to have a party to an international event that fills the town of Sitges during the first two weeks of September. There are parties and events held throughtout the entire village. There is also a dedicated bears village by the beach with shows, dj's and more. The Mr Bear Sitges competition is also held on the final weekend of the event. The event attracts guys of all ages and types and many new friendships are made and old ones rekindled.

This event has grown to become one of the biggest of the year. Even though it is in September, the town is full. Hotels fill up fast. Book yours now!

Gay Sitges Info

Gay SitgesSitges is a smart resort - decidedly chic compared with Torremolinos, Salou, San Antonio etc., visibly gay and with some very attractive visitors. If you're over 25 and not heavily into clubbing, drugs or fashion, then there's a good chance that this is the resort for you. (If you're a youngster who does like one or more of those things, then Ibiza should be more to your taste.)

It's a great place to relax. Part of the reason is that the town centre is pedestrianised. This means you can walk around the bars and stand a good chance of never even seeing a motor vehicle. Another plus point is that, on the Mediterranean, the overnight temperature in summer is usually over 20 degrees C. When you live on the chilly north east coast of England, you really appreciate being able to walk around at night in a T-shirt and shorts and still feeling warm!

Sitges Gay TravelBarcelona is only half an hour away by train and has enough sights to keep you occupied for days, as well as what seems a pretty extensive gay scene of its own.

Catalan (a separate language from standard or Castilian Spanish) is officially the first language of the region: you will see it on shop signs, menus etc. It's a strange and fascinating language with elements of Spanish and French in it, along with an 80% lexical similarity to Italian! We had been visiting for about six years before we discovered that the pronunciation of our favourite cafe name (Montroig - also one of the main streets of the town) is actually something like "Moon rotch".

Sitges Gay TravelThe only place you're really likely to hear Catalan spoken is on TV. The expectation seems to be that foreigners have enough trouble with Castilian without learning yet another language. Most street signs are in Catalan as well as Castilian - we've given the Catalan here: they're often very similar but if there's any problem in recognising the Castilian we give that too.More...

Sitges the Conclusion:

24/7 gaylife the entire year. The whole year delicious sun, sea and beach, and beautiful nature.

Sitges Gay Pride 2015 Hotels


Welcome to Sitges
Gay Sitges Travel Situated just 30 minutes south of Barcelona on Spain's Costa Dorada, the former fishing village of Sitges is one of the gay holiday hotspots for the discerning gay traveller. Attracting the gay community by its thousands, this ever-popular resort has built a reputation for being one of the most tolerant and one of the most lively summer destinations in Europe.
Today Sitges is a thriving, cosmopolitan town that offers its visitors excellent beaches.
June through September are the busiest months, when the Mediterranean sun – and the men – are at their hottest.
When it comes to sunbathing, Playa de la Ribera in town is where the majority of the gay crowd heads. If you’re looking for something a little more remote, or if you want to avoid tan lines, then the Playas del Muerto to the west of the centre are where to go. The further of these two beaches is almost exclusively gay.


Staying There - Sitges Gay Accommodation
Sitges Gay HotelsHappy Gay Travel have a great selections of hotels and apartments, all of which are located in the centre of Sitges, walking distance to the main tourist and gay attractions.
These cater for most gay travellers and your and range from value for money to up market.
Like our other resorts, you will soon note a large increase of gay and gay friendly accommodation which will be added in the near future.


Getting There
Sitges FlightsSitges doesn't have it's own air traffic node, but is nearly as close (approx. 20km) to Barcelona's El Prat Airport as Barcelona itself.
Buses leave from outside Terminal 2b, although they are not that regular. For trains you will have to go one stop to El Prat de Llobregat and change onto a train heading for Vilanova. By far the easiest option is to grab a taxi, which usually costs around 60 euros.
Reus is also fairly nearby, and you might be able to find cheaper flights to here, courtesy of Ryanair.
At a push Girona Airport is possible too. From both these airports coaches take you to Barcelona from where you can easily reach Sitges.


The Gay Scene in Sitges
Sitges gay sceneFor a small town Sitges is surprisingly well-endowed when it comes to bars, with venues to suit all tastes, ranging from cruisy bars with backrooms and video to traditional music bars.
Essentially the gay bars are located in three areas: around the main drag of Calle Dos de Mayo (known locally as Sin Street), in the older part of Sitges off Calle Mayor, and in the triangle bounded by Calle Espalter, Calle San Francisco and pedestrianised Parellades.
Generally speaking, Sitges' bars don't really come to life until 11pm or so, although one or two (El Horno, for example) open their doors from about 5pm onwards to cater for the crowds coming off the beaches.


The Gay Beaches in Sitges
Gay beach SitgesOne of the main attractions of Sitges is the large number of clean sandy beaches (see map). Between the distinctive Parish Church at one end of the promenade and the Terramar Hotel at the other there are no fewer than nine breakwaters, with gently sloping golden beaches in between, most of which offer sunloungers for rent, showers and refreshment kiosks.
Although there is only one predominantly gay beach in the centre of town - La Platja de la Bossa Rodona, directly below the Picnic Restaurant on the seafront - in recent years it has begun to be colonised by straights and their families and overspill during the height of summer means that you will find gay men and women just about anywhere along the whole stretch.
Gay beach SitgesIf you can't find a place to tan your tush on the central beaches, then it's only a short walk beyond the church to Platja Sant Sebastià, Platja dels Balmins (for mixed nudey bathing) and Platja d'Aiguadolç.
But that's not all - if you want to get an all-over tan away from the gaze of gawping straight tourists and you're feeling energetic, it's worth the effort heading out to the nudist beaches beyond the Terramar Hotel.
As usual, we would recommend that you keep all your valuables at home!
