Something I’m learning about myself is that I always enjoy the small, off-the-beaten-path towns much more than the major tourist cities when we are traveling.
Such was our experience in Spain. I would choose tiny Sitges over Madrid and Barcelona any day! The small, quaint beach town is something out of a Spanish fairytale (is there such a thing?). White sand beaches, deep blue water of the Mediterranean Sea, mom and pop bakeries and ah-mazinggg food. (Luckily it’s really close to Barcelona if you’re still itching for the big, popular tourist sites that you probably came to Spain for in the first place.)
Apologies in advance all these photos are from an iPhone… I gave up on the camera knowing we’d be in the sand each day.
Things to do?
Mostly just enjoy the beach and eat delicious Spanish food. Walk the boardwalk at sunset. Wander the tiny cutesy streets.
If you visit Sitges do yourself a favor and eat these things:
-Creme filled croissant w/ sugar from the oldest bakery in Sitges, the family-owned Pastisseria Masso: I crave this every single day. I single-handedly bought the place out of all their creme filled croissants on our last day there. (GUILTY)
-Nem: It’s a Vietnamese/Spanish fusion tapas bar with some of the best food Dillon and I have ever had. Found it on TripAdvisor and DANG were those reviews correct! Order the Patatas Bravas (x12) and the Pan con Tomate and thank me later. (We meant to take a pic of the food but DEVOURED it without remembering.)
