Soak up the rays

Cap Salou may be a little resort town but it has plenty to do and see. Explore its gentle private beaches and its thriving neighbour city of Salou, offering tons of attractions and entertainment on your doorstep for Costa Dorada package holidays.

The beach of Playa Llarga in Cap Salou has deep golden sandy stretches, incredible Mediterranean Sea views, and shallow water, perfect for snorkelling and playing in the low waves with your children. If you walk to the northern end of the beach you’ll find some lovely restaurants as well as some small souvenir shops.

If you fancy something more secluded, try the mini beach at Playa de Llevant. You have to walk down steps into the cove, which is surrounded by high rock walls, meaning this beach is much less populated that its neighbour beaches and you’ll find a spot to soak your feet in the crystal clear seawater.

Adventures next door

Cap Salou is a great location for any holidaymakers wanting accommodation close by to the city centre of Salou, but in a much quieter area. With this vibrant city on your doorstep you’ll have plenty of activities to venture out for including Spain’s biggest theme park, PortAventura World.

This family fun holiday park is divided into six areas, five of which are based on civilisations of the world. Come explore Mediterrania, the Far West, Mexico, China and Polynesia. PortAventura holidays also have a Sesame Street area for children and are building a section dedicated to all things Ferrari in 2017.

If you’re a fan of thrills hop on PortAventura World’s most famous ride, Shambhala – Expedicion al Himalaya,. It’s the tallest and fastest hyper coaster in Europe. Another one to check out is Dragon Khan, which has eight exhilarating inversions.

Eating out

There are a small line-up of restaurants and bars in Cap Salou offering up delicious authentic Spanish food on the resort’s promenade. Here you’ll find classic dishes such as paella and tapas as well as well recognised meals from around the world.

Shopping and sights

Cap Salou is known for its lazy and laid-back attitude, frequented by tourists and locals alike because of its private beaches and access to its larger neighbour Salou. If you want to do a bit of shopping in Cap Salou you will find a few souvenir shops along the beach but it’s best to hit up Salou’s popular traditional markets for some more variety.

For the history buffs in your group, Cap Salou is just a 15-minute drive away from Tarragona,  an ancient Roman capital. Here you can explore the ancient amphitheatre, where gladiators did battle in front of 13,000 spectators. Journey back through time as you discover the circus once used for chariot races, the prominent aqueduct known as Pont del Diable or the ‘devil’s bridge’, and the Roman forum.

Night on the town

Even though Cap Salou is relatively small, it’s big on nightlife. With several bars and resorts offering up nightly entertainment, you are bound to find something that will appeal to everyone in your group. Why not head over to Avinguda de Carles Buigas for its lively disco? Other bars surrounding the area play live music and have cabaret and magic shows as well as karaoke and Irish tunes.

Even if you’re visiting on All Inclusive Costa Dorada holidays, it’s well worth taking a little spending money out for a taste of authentic Spanish nightlife in Cap Salou.
