The Catalan region of Spain is a visitor’s paradise and none more so than Costa Dorada. Literally translated it means “Golden Coast” and very apt it is too. Miles and miles of sandy golden beaches face the azure waters of the Mediterranean Sea backed by post card towns and pretty fishing villages dotting the coast.
It is one of the most popular regions for visitors from Europe and other parts of the world. There are plenty of things to do and see with the numerous beaches being the main attraction, of course.
Costa Dorada includes the provinces of Calafell, Torredembarra, Villa-seca, Tarragona, Salou, Cambrils and L’Ametlla de Mar.
Of course! The beaches are the first and most popular places people head to when they arrive in the Costa Dorada area. Mile upon mile of golden sands, backed by pine trees and picturesque coves are simply magnetic. Add to that the numerous bars, restaurants and an energetic nightlife and you have the holiday-makers ideal destination.
You could have difficulty choosing from so many beautiful beaches. These are just a few of the top ones to choose from: Salou, La Ribera in Sitges, Cambrils, La Pineda and Mont-roig del Camp. Besides just sun worshipping there are a wide variety of water sports such as windsurfing, underwater fishing and water skiing to indulge in.
Located in the Tarragona province, the Aqua Leon Park is rather unique. It is a combination safari and water themed park. The animal section houses a wide range of animals including Farabella miniature horses, Emus, Raccoons, Meerkats, Wallabies, snakes, African elephants, lions, tigers, llamas, antelopes, zebras and more.
No article about Costa Dorada would be complete without a mention of PortAventura World. Attracting around four million visitors every year, it's firmly established as the top theme park in Spain, and the sixth most visited theme park in Europe.
PortAventura World is actually three attractions in one - PortAventura itself, Ferarri Land and Caribe Aquatic Park. There are also a number of four and five star hotels on the site - so you can stay right in the thick of the action.
When night falls, don't miss Salou's Font lluminosa, located at the start of the promenade. At night the stunning fountains are transformed into an impressive choreographed display of colourful light, water and music.
At the opposite end of the promenade to Font Lluminosa are the Cybernetic Fountains. These were installed in 2007, and have been delighting both tourists and locals ever since. The fountains dance to music at selected show times in an amazing spectacle of light and sound.
Aquapolis water park is a must-visit. From the adrenaline-fuelled Hurricane and Boomerang slides to the relaxing chill-out zone, this attraction has something for all the family to enjoy.
It has the added attraction of a Dolphinarium, where you can watch a dolphin and sea lion show and even swim with them.
