Blending the attributes of a tourist haven with the old world charms of Catalan Spain, the lively resort of Salou in mainland Spain’s Costa Dorada really aims to please. Predominantly a family resort, Salou is a hive of entertainment, family bars and restaurants and quirky souvenir shops. Boasting an astonishing 34 blue flag award winning beaches, Salou is a practical paradise for beach lovers.
The two main stretches of golden sand, Playa Ponent and Playa Llevant, situated at opposing sides of the bay and adjoined by the Jaume I promenade, are extremely popular with tourists, especially those with children because of the abundance of play parks and water sports on offer.
With Europe’s largest and ever-expanding theme park PortAventura right on the doorstep, there need never be a dull moment on a holiday to Salou! Featuring 6 themed areas of thrill rides and spectacular shows, as well as 4 onsite hotels and the Costa Caribe Aquatic Park, there is fun for all the family at PortAventura.
Ideally located close to the beautiful cities of Barcelona and Tarragona, Salou makes the perfect resort in which to base yourself for a holiday exploring more of what Spain has to offer. The charming Old Town quarter of Salou itself is also worth a visit if only to take advantage of the excellent street market which occurs every Monday.
