Platja de la Bassa Rodona Beach

Located in Sitges, roughly 20 minutes from Barcelona, Platja de la Bassa Rodona is best well known as the region’s premier gay-friendly beach. As one of the most central, it’s here that many gay couples choose to sunbathe, although increasingly relaxed attitudes towards the gay community mean many happily bathe on beaches closer to the Catalonian capital.

As a result of its history, visitors can expect some male nudity, but nothing beyond what you might expect to see on a standard nudist beach. Platja de la Bassa Rodona has parasols and deck chairs for rent, alongside pedalos and kayaks. I

ts 285-metre length and relatively narrow 18-metre width are patrolled by lifeguards, while refreshments can be sought at the prominent beach bar on site
