It’s not surprising Costa Dorada means ‘golden coast’. The brilliant beaches here are to die for, and more than 26 of them have a Blue Flag planted in the grains for cleanliness. You’ve got rocky coves and verdant headlands to explore by these staggering bronzed stretches too.
Go your own way
If you’re looking for a laid-back vibe, Cambrils is ideal, with scenic walks and soft sandy beaches on offer. La Pineda has the PortAventura adventure park on the doorstep, packed with legendary rollercoasters and six worlds to discover. And Cap Salou’s all cosy coves this and relaxed dining that. Whereas Salou’s a vibrant mix of family fun and lively nightlife.
With plenty of cities just a stone’s throw from this Costa, you’ll never be short of exploring opportunities. Don’t miss Tarragona’s wealth of Roman ruins or the interesting architecture in Gaudí’s hometown of Reus. Barcelona’s close too, which makes for a perfect day trip.
