Before the start of the summer, I visited Spain for the first time and was pretty much living out my Cheetah Girls 2 dreams. Barcelona was such a beautiful city to explore for 2 weeks and I still feel like I didn’t even cover half of it.
One of the cities that my friends and I took a day trip to was Sitges, which is a coastal town southwest of Barcelona. It was 8 euros each way for a round trip ticket and the train ride was around 40 minutes, so it was super quick and cheap!
We arrived in Sitges at 3 p.m. on a Sunday and I remember walking out of the train station and entering the city for the first and just falling in love with the brightness and beauty that boasts every corner you turn. From the station it was only a short walk to the beach but we kept getting distracted by all the aesthetically pleasing buildings and alleyways.
Before making it to the beach, we stopped by a grocery store to pick up a few drinks and fresh fruit to snack on while enjoying the beach. Along the way there were so many photo opportunities that I obviously had to take advantage of even if it did require quite a few takes to get the perfect shot.
Luckily the beach wasn’t too crowded, so we were able to find a good spot and have enough space to play our own music. It was such a hot day in Sitges that after getting our blankets and snacks situated, I laid down and took a nap. I don’t know about you but being in the sun makes me sleepy.
After waking up I took a dip in the water before we started packing up to head back to Barcelona before the last train. I didn’t fully get in the water, but it sure was nice and cooling on my legs.
Before heading out, we decided to stop at one of the restaurants across the street from the beach to get some real food. The place was called Tou Tou Restaurant Bar Cafeteria & Pizzeria and we ended up ordering two pizzas to share between four of us. The pizza was seriously good, I would recommend it if you take a trip to Sitges.
While we were waiting for the food to come out I took a stroll around the surrounding streets to try and take some photos capturing the essence of Sitges. I didn’t want to wander to far away on my own and my time was limited so I’ll without a doubt have to take a trip back.
If you ever take a trip to Barcelona, you need to take a trip to Sitges for the day. It’ll really make you want to consider quitting everything and moving to a beach town off the coast of a European city.
I loved the laid back and slow pace vibe of the city that really allows you to sit back and truly take everything in.
Have you ever been to Sitges? Let me know in the comments.
