California Apartments

Salou’s bars, restaurants and sandy beach are all within touching distance when you stay at the California Apartments.

The apartments are modern and the pool is surrounded by stylish loungers and plant-filled railway sleepers – there’s also a shallow pool for kids right next to it. If you want a change of scenery, head to the sister hotel for another two choices.

The restaurant shares the modern feel, too – think hanging lamps, wine-filled bookcases and funky chairs. It specialises in big buffets for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

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.
