Best Cap Salou

The Best Cap Salou Hotel is a good place to base yourself to explore both Salou and the Costa Dorada. There’s a small but sandy beach right outside the hotel, while PortAventura and the Aquopolis Waterpark are a short drive away. Tucked into a small cove, the hotel is peaceful with comfortable rooms, bright décor and great facilities. The hotel has sea views almost everywhere, from its pool, its gardens and its restaurants. There’s a large pool surrounded by a terrace and sun loungers, as well as a smaller pool for children. There’s even a heated indoor pool inside the spa alongside a sauna and a gym. The restaurant serves delicious food, and children love the kids’ club.

Things to do in Salou, Costa Dorada

You can’t stay at the Best Cap Salou without a trip to the ginormous PortAventura. This mega theme park has six different zones, all containing hair-raising rides and family favourites. The Furious Baco rollercoaster reaches speeds of 135 km/hour – it’s one for the brave! On the flip-side, there is plenty of fun, smaller rides for little children too. For something more relaxing, head 10 minutes outside of Salou to the handful of tranquil beaches on the outskirts. With a backdrop of mountains and pine forests, these quiet beaches are the perfect place to escape from modern life. Cala Cranc and Fort Cove are two of the best to visit though you may want to bring your own picnics as the facilities aren’t as expansive as Salou’s main beaches. Salou has everything from the adrenaline-seekers paradise of PortAventura to hidden coves and serene beaches. The town’s lively atmosphere gives every holiday a party feel yet the Best Cap Salou provides a peaceful spot to rest and recover after a night out in Salou’s buzzing bars.

Resort Summary

Salou has two main beaches – both of which are European Blue Flag winners – that offer the kind of beautiful, fine sand and stunning views of the Mediterranean Sea that we’ve come to expect from holidays to Costa Dorada. Playa de Llevant beach is a great choice for families as the water remains calm and shallow and the sand is consistently smooth – ideal conditions for splashing around or doing some snorkelling. Playa de Llevant has a long stretch of beach bars and there are also small play areas for children along the promenade.

The second beach in Salou is Playa de Ponent. It’s slightly shorter than Playa de Llevant but still a kilometre long with quaint cafes dotted along the sand, perfect for an ice cold refreshment. If you want to venture further afield the busier tourist hotspot of Cambrils is just up the coast line.
