Spectacular Holidays to Salou

Situated in the heart of Costa Dorada, the seaside resort of Salou is widely regarded as the holiday capital of the region. Its Mediterranean climate and renowned nightlife scene make it a popular choice for young groups and couples, but there is plenty to please families, too. At just 15km from Tarragona Airport, Salou holidays could not be more convenient, and with all manner of entertaining things to see and do in the vicnity – as well as glorious beaches and non-stop sunshine to make the most of – there's no reason not to plan your trip. You won't be disappointed!

Holiday Hotspot

All-inclusive resorts are a popular choice for holidays to Salou, but there is a range of accommodation on offer to suit all types of getaway. The marina area is more upmarket than the rest of town, with sophisticated bars, restaurants and top class hotels to enjoy. For shopping, Barcelona Street is the primary commercial area where shops stay open well into the evening and people flock to the streets enjoying the jovial atmosphere. Families, meanwhile, will enjoy the calm Ponent Beach, while adventure enthusiasts should head to Llevant Beach for a plethora of water-sports. To forego the crowds, quieter beaches outside of town include Cala Font and Cala Crancs, making them the perfect spot for a secluded day with your better half.

Exciting Activities

Throughout history, the Greeks, Romans and even pirates have called Salou home, so its reputation as a tourist destination has been established for centuries. In both a nod to the past and in recognition to the multicultural present, there is a vast array of international cuisine on hand in the resort. Restaurants and bars line the promenade, so after a hearty meal you can walk off those calories with an evening stroll as the sun sets.

While sun, sea and sand are abundant, Salou holidays also have much more to offer. The Torre Vella, once a defensive fort during medieval times, is now a progressive events centre. The Font Iluminosa is also an excellent example of blending history with modernity; this dramatic fountain plays its own light and music show every evening.

Salou hosts the Catalonia round of the World Rally Championship every year, so any automobile fans or rally drivers in the making may be interested in planning their trip around this. Other events on during the year include San Juan Festival in June and the Summer Fiesta in August. There’s plenty of opportunity for a party in Salou!
