A mixture of old town charm, pretty ports and lively markets, Cambrils on Spain’s Costa Dorada is a great destination for a family or couples getaway. Walk along the promenade behind the Blue Flag beaches or catch some rays on a section of Cambrils’ 9km coastline. Not only is this a beautiful beach destination, but Cambrils is also a historic centre of Catalonia where you can find out about its history at the castle and fortress.
With 7 Blue Flag beaches covered with beautiful golden sand, the 9kms of Cambrils coastline spoils visitors with its stunning beauty. Sun loungers and umbrellas are provided for those warm summer days and chirunguitos, or beach shacks, serve delicious snacks throughout the day. If you’re feeling active, there are plenty of watersports on offer. Try out windsurfing, scuba diving or sailing or have a kite surfing lesson from one of the many watersports centres in Cambrils.
Cambrils is a fairly low key resort, so if you’re looking for a lively night out, neighbouring Salou is close by for a night on the tiles. However, Cambrils’ restaurants and beachside bars are more than enough to entertain. Michelin-starred restaurants are tucked away in the side streets and traditional restaurants serving fresh food, tapas and delicious cava are dotted along the promenade and around Cambrils’ pretty harbour area.
Cambrils is well located for day trips up and down the coast. 3km away is Port Aventura, a fun theme park that the whole family will enjoy. It’s easy enough to catch a train or bus to the park from Cambrils making it super convenient for a day out. Alternatively, for a day in the city, make the 90-minute train journey to Barcelona where you can see the unfinished yet beautiful La Sagrada Familia.
