Medplaya Piramide Salou

Classically styled with plenty going on, the Medplaya Piramide Salou is perfectly positioned to allow you to enjoy the best of the area. It’s a 10-minute walk to the beach, and the centre of the resort just steps away, so it’s all there if you want it. The tree-lined pool is where it all happens, and it even has an inflatable assault course to explore. There’s a buffet restaurant, poolside bar and the live evening entertainment comes with a fun West End twist. If that’s not enough, world-famous PortAventura theme park is less than a mile away.

Overview of Salou

By day and night, there’s a lot to enjoy in Salou. From theme parks and water parks to vibrant nightlife and sandy beaches, there’s always something going on here. And the Medplaya Piramide Salou is right in the middle of it all. The location is so good that in just 10 minutes you can drive to the medieval citadel of Tarragona, and Barcelona is only 90 minutes away. Whether you’re looking to hit the beach and soak up the rays or burn the candle at both ends, holidays to Costa Dorada just don’t come much better than in Salou.

Things to do in Salou

If you’re up for an adrenaline rush, PortAventura has Europe’s fastest rollercoaster, along with a host of top rides and attractions for the whole family. The Golden Nights of Salou Festival, every August, is a lot of fun, boasting flamenco dancing, fashion shows, tribute bands and tightrope walkers. If you prefer a bit of peace and quiet, just a 10-minute drive up the coast from the Medplaya Piramide Salou is rugged Cala Morisca and Cala Penya Tallada coves, which are perfect for a hike, finished off with a swim in the bay or the calm waters of Cala Crancs. Salou can be whatever you want it to be, whether you’re here to bask in the sun and enjoy the beach, hit the theme parks or party until dawn. Fill your boots.

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.
