Holidays to Cambrils take you to a traditional Spanish fishing port with Blue Flag beaches, Michelin-starred restaurants and relaxed nightlife. And you’re within easy reach of the cosmopolitan city of Barcelona.
Authentic fishing village
The Catalonian town of Cambrils is up in northeastern Spain, along the glamorous Costa Dorada. It’s a polished fishing village that’s retained its old town charm, which means a great mix – markets in the old town, nightlife on the promenade and Michelin-starred restaurants on tucked-away side streets. All this with fantastic Blue Flag beaches, and just a 80-minute drive to Catalonia’s capital, Barcelona.
Blue Flag beaches
Cambrils’ 7-kilometre stretch is made up of 9 Blue Flag beaches. Most of them have umbrellas and sunloungers, plus lifeguards patrolling the waters. Windsurfing is a popular pastime here, as Cambrils gets a good breeze off the water. You can also scuba dive, sail and kite-surf in the area. The beaches are backed by the long promenade, but little food shacks known as chiringuitos are right on the sand.
Daytrips to Barcelona
Barcelona is a 90-minute train ride from Cambrils station. You can wander the old town where Gaudi’s one-off architecture reigns – there’s the strange Casa Batlló and the famous unfinished Sagrada Família, a vast cathedral with towering spires. The pedestrian Las Ramblas has street magicians performing for al fresco diners. There’s also modern architecture to see, with Frank Gehry’s striking glass fish structure, and tours of Camp Nou, FC Barcelona’s mammoth 90,000-seat stadium.
