Have been coming to Balmins for years and love it. Surprisingly some reviewers seem to have an issue with seeing older people naked but surely the whole point of a nudist beach is that it is for everyone irrespective of their age.

This was a very polite & chill beach. 75% nude. Nice clean water, calm & warm. There is a bar stand with reasonable beach prices. A life guard was on duty too. 1st time at nude beach. Would go here again.

I have visited Sitges and this beach for 4 years now. Its a wonderful place. The water is clean and every year it does not disappoint, strong waves, falls quickly to 1.5 meters and stays that way. Its lovely to swim. Clothing is option on this beach so if you are prudish or dislike nudity then stay well away. At... More

The beach is fairly easy to access. It had a public toilet and showers, should you need them. It also has a small restaurant which offers a variety of foods and the service is friendly and good.

We didn't realize but this beautiful beach next to the Melia hotel is a nude beach. Water is clean when we went and access is not very handicap friendly. Part of it isn't gay beach too .

Playa Nudista Cala Balmins is a little paradise beach. you can either use the facilities as parasols and beds as well as simply lay on the sand. there is also a Cheringuito with food and beverages.
