Costa Dorada

Located south of Barcelona, the Costa Dorada represents a good value alternative for families seeking fun and amusement in the glorious Spanish sunshine. The main resort of Salou is particularly popular for its proximity to Port Aventura, one of the world’s most renowned water parks, which attracts 4 million visitors every year to its rides, restaurants and amusements. A more low key alternative is also available inland at La Pineda, which contains more water rides for the family to enjoy.

As one of the less crowded stretches of coastline in Spain, the Costa Dorada contains a number of secluded beaches and resort from which to enjoy Spain’s golden sands and the refreshing waters of the Mediterranean Sea. The traditional village of L’Ametlla de Mar is the perfect place to enjoy locally caught seafood and watch sunsets, whilst the beaches at Cala Trebal, La Llenya and L’Estray Podrit are relaxing alternatives to the more lively resorts of the Spanish coast. Elsewhere, the attractive town of Sitges is popular with locals and visitors alike thanks to its colourful events, including car rallies, film festivals and carnivals.
