On this trip you’ll be driven to Altafulla, a peaceful town around 30 minutes’ drive from Tarragona. The star of the show here is a long, golden beach. It stretches along the coast for nearly a kilometre, and is over 20 metres wide, so there’s plenty of space to lay down a towel and top up your tan. You’ll have three hours here, so when you get peckish, head for the palm-fringed promenade behind the beach. It’s home to a long line of restaurants – choose from Italian trattorias, exotic Thai eateries, and cosy tapas spots. If you fancy soaking up a bit of local culture, you can also take a wander around the well-preserved old quarter, complete with its own Medieval castle.
