If you’re feeling a bit more energetic, get involved in aqua aerobics, skittles and sports contests. And when meal times come around, choose from the buffet or a la carte dining with a menu of Spanish favourites and international fare. Children even have their own buffet to dig into. All this, a spa and plenty of entertainment promise a relaxing, fun-filled family break.

Overview of Costa Dorada

Spain’s Golden Coast, the legendary Costa Dorada, has a welcoming combination of great beaches, history-packed towns and an enviable climate. With 92km of coastline perfect for sandcastle building and 300 days of sunshine each year, there’s lots to like. Head to Salou, home to TGolden Avenida Family Suites, and you’ve got a Blue Flag beach and all kinds of family friendly fun to enjoy. With all this and the historic towns of Sitges and Barcelona ideal for day-trips, holidays to Costa Dorada are well worth adding to your shortlist.

Things to do in Salou

When it comes to fun-packed family breaks, Salou is bursting with options. The Golden Avenida Family Suites steps away from the resort’s main amenities and just 4.5km from the popular PortAvenutura Theme Park. There’s also a waterpark within easy reach; the Aquapolis in La Pineda serves up a child-friendly selection of marine-life shows, adrenaline-pumping water slides and splash parks. Drive 10 minutes to Tarragona to explore its medieval citadel and 12th-century cathedral and amphitheatre. When it comes to Spanish holidays, the Costa Dorada is always a hit, with Salou offering lashings of family friendly fun and a buzzing nightlife.

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.
