Take your pick of three brilliant parcs in Salou to explore the best that the Costa Dorada has to offer. 

You'll find theme and water parks galore on your doorstep, including PortAventura, Costa Caribe Aquatic Park and Aqualeon Safari and Water Theme Park. If you fancy testing your nerve day after day, we can help you book a multi-day ticket to PortAventura.

Costa to Costa - Barcelona

Last but not least - and only an hour from your parc - is the truly magnificent city of Barcelona. this is a city that gives you everything from stunning architecture, history and culture, through to impressive sports stadia, fantastic shopping and even more theme parks. 

Stop to tuck into tapas the authentic way and soak up the region capital's lively café scene.

Costa to Costa

Top tastes include:

  • Sofregit - a more-ish mixture of fried onion, garlic and tomato
  • Samafaina or chanfaina - sofregit plus red pepper and aubergine or courgette
  • Picada - ground almonds, usually with garlic, parsley, pine or hazelnuts, and sometimes breadcrumbs
  • Allioli - pounded garlic with olive oil, often mixed with egg yolk to make more of a mayonnaise
  • Romesco - an almond, tomato, olive oil, garlic and vinegar sauce, also used as a salad dressing

No meal is complete without a suitable refreshment - you'll find plenty of choice amongst local wine and beer. Catalonian white wines are better than the reds, but the regional favourite is Cava, a bubbly alternative to champagne. As for beer, the choice is endless, but you can't go wrong with locally-brewed San Miguel or Estrella Damm. When you've had your taste of this cosmopolitan city, it's time to head back to Salou and spend a few days by the beach recuperating (or supping more Cava - holidays are thirsty work, after all!).
