Sitges for a straight couple?

We're a straight couple, early 40s. Love the look of Sitges as we love great food, nightlife with a great buzz but not hardcore and not the Brits abroad type thing. Having read about the nightlife on here it talks mostly about the gay scene which sounds great but obviously not for us, would we be out of place? Any advice would be much appreciated. Thanks

Sitges welcomes everyone. Many "straight" people, families, singles... live there or spend their holidays in Sitges.

But if you're concerned, you may consider next town to Sitges, Vilanova i la Geltrú.

It's as gay as you want it to be. I'm gay but don't go for that, actually tend to avoid the whole scene.

It's a great place, and is not as "gay" as people sometimes suggest.

As long as the site of gay people do not bother you, then y ou will have a fab time.

And don't forget to get out and about: there are great places to see in the region - Barcelona, of course, by direct train from Sitges; also Montserra and Tarragona - both great places to visit if you want a break from the beach.

p.s. And if you're in Sitges over 22nd / 23rd September you'll be there for Santa Tecla: fireworks from the parish church on the evening of 22nd beginning at 11pm, then all the processions and dances through the streets on 23rd. Great fun!
