Stunning Salou

With its many facilities and outstanding beaches, many consider holidays in Salou to represent the tourist capital of Costa Dorada – and they’re not far from the truth. Here is a place where you can explore theme parks with the little ones, sunbathe on blissful beaches and play golf on sun-splashed greens; of course there’s something to suit everyone but it’s the incredible sunshine that is sure to keep you coming back time and time again.

Overlooking the Balearic Sea and presenting the perfect example of what many will enjoy about Spain, the bustling resort offers a plethora of activity to get involved with. Whether you’re hoping to cool off in water parks, seclude yourself on Llarga Beach or would prefer to take home a souvenir or two from your Salou holidays – you’ll be well-catered for here.

A tourist’s heaven

For the majority, the be all and end all is being situated close to the huge number of beaches that decorate Costa Dorada’s shoreline. Luckily for those people, Salou has a large range of hotels ranging from two-star to five-star and from self-catering to all inclusive, so you can be sure to get the best deal for you when it comes to accommodation. Ponent, Llarga and Llevant beaches are the most popular with tourists, offering excluded spots as well as a range of activities, so it may be best to choose accordingly depending on what you’re after.

Fun in the sunshine

If you’ve got the kids in tow or are with a group of mates, definitely head to PortAventura Park during your holidays to Salou. With both towering rollercoasters and attractions for children, everyone will be well-suited to a visit here, whether you’ve got the little ones with you or not. Alternatively, you can make your way to Costa Caribe Aquatic Park to enjoy a fantastic day out, making a splash and picking up a gorgeous tan in the process; before settling down with a perspiring glass of cool, delicious beer in Christy’s Irish Bar.

Venturing further afield is another tempting option for the enthusiastic holidaymaker, Cambrils being a short distance away and offering more in the way of historic allure. Castle Vilafortuny is worth a look, the stone structure has now been converted on the inside for residential purposes but the magnificent outlay has remained largely unchanged over time. Otherwise you can use your Salou holidays for providing ample doses of relaxation. With a range of hotels offering their own independent spas, guests can choose to unwind and forget about their troubles while utilising a range of therapeutic treatments.

Heading east from your Salou holidays will bring you to the incredible city of Tarragona. Roman history and medieval alleyways speak volumes about this port city’s prominence in early Spanish history, while the maze of cobbled streets will offer more than just aesthetic appeal – restaurants and bars being commonplace and ensuring you are perfectly catered for when getting to know the intricate details of this wonderful location.
