With its thrilling theme parks, beautiful beaches and entertaining nightlife, Costa Dorada has something for everyone. This sun-drenched ‘golden coast’ of southern Catalonia has miles of clean, sandy beaches to relax on, with crystal-clear waters perfect for swimming in, and dozens of charming seaside towns to visit and enjoy the mouth-watering local food.
For an exciting day of adventure try Portaventura theme park resort. Keep all the family entertained with thrilling rides and attractions – get your adrenaline going on the exhilarating rollercoasters, and take a journey through the different exotic ‘lands’ that the resort is divided into. You can also try the Caribbean-themed water adventure rides at the Caribe Aquatic Park. For golf fans, the resort’s Lumine Golf Club boasts three fantastic courses that are the best way of getting out and about in the sun whilst relaxing at the same time. Portaventura is packed with things to do and see and is also home to some great restaurants and local food and wine.
For those in search of culture, the beautifully unspoiled historic town of Tarragona has plenty to offer visitors. Discover the ancient ruins of the town’s Roman ampitheatre, Roman walls and towers, and the Gothic cathedral. The Tarragona Archeology Museum can tell you more about these sites and locations also have beautiful views of the coastal town. The nearby Miravet Castle on the banks of the picturesque River Ebro is also well worth a trip.
The entertainment certainly doesn’t stop in the evening – for a quirky night of all-round entertainment try the popular House of Illusion in Salou, which hosts two fantastic shows a night, featuring close-up magic tricks at your table, mind-reading, hypnosis, comedy, music, and much more. All drinks are included in the ticket price. The shows here often sell out quickly, so be sure to book early to make sure you don’t miss out on a great night!
When it comes to food and drink, you can’t go wrong. This region produces some of the finest Spanish wines from the many vineyards that you can see covering the landscape. Catalan food is also renowned, and Costa Dorado does not disappoint, with beachside cafes, lively tapas bars and seafood restaurants dotted along the coast.
