During my trip to Barcelona I decided to take an overnight trip to Sitges, a quaint beach town just 30 minutes south of the city. Sitges is a popular getaway spot for residents of Barcelona. Since it’s so easily accessible by train or car, it makes for a great add-on destination if you’re visiting Barcelona.
24 Hours Exploring The Beach Town Of Sitges
While in Sitges I stayed at the beautiful Hotel MiM. This hotel is centrally located and just steps from the beach. My suite was stunning, with a huge bed, beautiful decor, a luxurious tub (goals!), and an ocean view. I had probably my best night’s sleep while staying at Hotel MiM. Maybe since I was at the beach all day or because the bed was so comfortable. I think it was a mixture of both.
Apart from the luxurious rooms, Hotel MiM also features a rooftop terrace with a pool to be used during the day, and a bar at night. The views from the terrace are impressive and it’s always full of beautiful people. There is also a spa that guests have complimentary access to for 1 hour a day with their stay. There you can enjoy a second pool, sauna, hot tub, etc. I also had breakfast included with my stay which I really enjoyed. The hotel’s restaurant offers a variety of traditional breakfast choices as well as some Spanish items.
Things To Do In Sitges
Since I only had one night in Sitges I decided to make the most of it by exploring both the town and the beach. Sitges is a very small but charming town, so I thought one night was enough. Obviously it would have been nice to stay longer and enjoy more of that wonderful beach, but I was able to do everything I wanted within this timeframe.
Sitges town is very lively and is full of tourists, locals, and a very LGBT-friendly community. I loved the overall vibe of this town and also its picturesque streets, quaint restaurants, and views of the cathedral. When I arrived in Sitges, I checked into Hotel MiM and then headed out to the beach for a few hours. After getting a deep tan, I headed back to Hotel MiM to get cleaned up. Later I went to explore the town and cathedral until sundown. That night I also wandered the streets for a bit checking out the nightlife and had dinner at a yummy Indian restaurant. Food choices are plenty here, btw!
The next day I simply had breakfast at Hotel MiM and then headed back to the beach for a few hours before catching my train back to Barcelona. It was a perfectly relaxing morning 🙂
If you’re traveling to Barcelona I definitely recommend you making a stop in Sitges for a night and checking out Hotel MiM. Neither will disappoint!
