Holidays to Salou bring you golden sandy beaches, easy access to Europe’s biggest theme park and 24-hour nightlife. And Barcelona is just 90 minutes away.
Ready for fun
If entertainment is what you want from your holiday, Salou has it in spades. Set on Spain’s Costa Dorada, it’s got Europe’s biggest theme park on the doorstep and a waterpark just up the road. The place also sets a lively pace at night, with a big choice of bars and clubs. There’s plenty of relaxation to be had, too, though, on the town’s golden beaches.
A duo of beaches
You’ve got a choice of 2 main beaches here. On the west side of the port, the kilometre-long Playa Ponent is a spacious sandy stretch dotted with cafés. On the east side is the slightly longer Playa Llevant, which tops things off with a gym, volleyball and children’s playground. Watersports come as standard on either side.
Waterparks and theme parks
Salou is home to Karting Salou, where you can race around the go-kart track or bungee rocket from 0 to 180 kilometres an hour in 1.3 seconds. Over at Aquapolis, on the way to neighbouring La Pineda, there are waterslides for all the family. And the mega PortAventura theme park is just 20 minutes away.
Daytrips to Tarragona and Barcelona
A 10-minute drive takes you to Tarragona, where there’s a Medieval citadel, an amphitheatre and a 12th-century cathedral to see. And for even more sights, there’s Barcelona – just 90 minutes away by train. Here, you’ll get a big hit of Gaudi with his La Sagrada Familia and Parc Güell, plus a chic marina and the famous Las Ramblas.
