Costa Dorada Holidays 2020/2021
Tucked along the Costa Dorada in north-east Spain, Salou is a sun-kissed coastal resort designed for relaxation by the sea. If it’s wide sandy beaches, lively nightlife and Catalonian culture you’re after, snap up the chance to discover this dreamy destination.
You’re in for bucket loads of fun at PortAventura World, with two theme parks and one water park to enjoy! And if you love go karting, paddle boarding and mini golf, you can tick all three off in the centre of Salou.
The Costa Dorada earned its name for the golden swathes of sand fringing its shores and it’s no different in Salou. Blue-flag Platja de Llevant is one of the best, primed for families with various water sports and a playground, while Cala Crancs is a dinky patch with serene waters perfect for snorkeling.
Salou is bursting at the seams with sights! Make a beeline for Plaza Francesc Germà Sanz to see the spectacular Ornamental Fountains, then enjoy an afternoon stroll through the lush Botanical Gardens of Salou. The winding Cami de Ronda coastal path delivers you to Salou Lighthouse and provides beautiful sea views along the way, too.
After dark, Salou really comes to life. Watch the sunset from one of the vibrant beach bars, before heading to one of the terrace tables to enjoy a glass of wine and watch the world go by. Vibrant pubs and clubs keep the party going until the early hours, so don’t forget to pack your dancing shoes!
