Things to do in Salou

The Avenida Jaume I area, running parallel to Levante Beach, is a great spot to head to if you’re on the hunt for souvenirs, trinkets and current fashions. If you’re visiting Salou, spending at least one day at the beach is a must, as Costa Dorada is defined by its fabulous stretches of sand. The two main beaches in Salou are great for families and couples alike, and they’re conveniently dotted with cafés and bars. For some high-octane excitement, spend a day at PortAventura, Spain’s biggest theme park, found in Salou. There’s more on offer than just roller coasters, so set aside plenty of time to explore the whole park.

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.
