Holidays to mainland Spain revolve around the Costas. Up north in Catalonia, you'll find the rugged Costa Brava and Costa Dorada. Further down the coast are the Costa Blanca's white-sand beaches. And curving round Spain's southern edge are the sun-soaked regions of Costa de Almeria, Costa del Sol and Costa de la Luz.
The Spanish mainland surprises with contrasts. On the one hand, the mild Mediterranean Sea awaits you, on the other, the rugged Atlantic Ocean, and while the interior is characterized by the barren plateau of Castile;gt, the icy peaks of the Pyrenees rise into the sky in the north-east and the snow-covered Sierra Nevada scratches with about 3 in southern Spain.500 m at the clouds.
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.
An easy drive into the northeastern Catalan countryside via Olot will take you to the Garrotxa Volcanic Zone.
It’s a large volcanic field that last saw an eruption 11,000 years ago, but is still occasionally the source of an earthquake, the last big one hitting Barcelona in the 15th century.
The reason you have to come is for the scenery, with 40 telltale volcanic cones ensconced in oak, beech and pine woodland.
The whole park is laced with inter-connecting trails that will guide you over basalt lava flows and up extinct volcanoes in scenery that is unlike anything else in Iberia.
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.
