From the Port Aventura theme park, to miles of sandy beaches – Spain’s “Golden Coast” stretches south from Barcelona to Tarragona and attracts many people to the area.

The hub of holiday life in the region, the cities of Salou, La Pineda and Cambrils provide ample dining and recreational activities with plenty of Costa Dorada hotels available.
Recreation and fun
With a huge range of activities on offer in the resort areas, most notably Salou, there are a broad range of water sports and recreational activities, including water skiing, diving, golfing, para gliding, horse riding and cycling. Salou also boasts a thriving nightlife with a wide array of pubs, discos and bars that cater to numerous international visitors. In fact, Salou is widely considered one of the liveliest nightlife spots in the Spanish Costas, making it a popular destination for many holidaymakers.
Thrill rides, shows, restaurants and shops in the amusement park of Port Aventura, is a must-see for groups visiting the area, who will easily be kept busy for several days. Don’t miss the Dragon Khan roller coaster, which looms over the Costa Dorada countryside.
Natural Beauty and Culture
To explore the natural beauty and historical attractions of the area, drive inland to the heavily forested, mountainous part of the region. Stop by one of the local vineyards for tours and samples of the local wines. With value for money, many of the Spain hotels in the area offer you the opportunity to stay over in whatever region you visit. Drive the Route of Cistercian Monasteries, which visits the ancient monasteries of Poblet, Vallbona de les Monges and Santes Creus, or history buffs can visit L’Espluga de Francolí, a prehistoric cave complex.
