Costa Dorada Hotels

Mini guide to Costa Dorada

     

Located on the east coast of Spain and aptly named the 'Golden Coast', the Costa Dorada offers visitors beautiful beaches, secluded rocky coves and a nearby mountain range. It is an ideal place to enjoy a peaceful holiday.

Of the region's many towns and beaches, the principal attractions are the towns and coastline of Salou with its pristine blue flag beaches of La Pineda and Platja Llevant, and the more historic regional city of Tarragona. Among the many museums in Tarragona are the Archaeological Museum devoted to Roman antiquities; the Diocesan Museum displaying Gothic paintings, sculptures and tapestries; and a house museum detailing the life and career of the renowned cellist, Pablo Casals.

Wander along Salou's seafront promenade, set within beautifully landscaped gardens and parks, or explore the Roman amphitheatre, aqueduct, forum and other buildings sited on the Paseo Arqueologico (Archaeological Avenue), which leads to some panoramic viewpoints. A wide boulevard known as the Rambla Nova represents the modern main street outside the old city walls. A popular outing for visitors is to explore the old harbour, known as El Serrallo, to watch the fishing boats arrive and have their catch auctioned.

Partake in the many activities on offer including golf, sailing, scuba diving and windsurfing. The region has a wide variety of quality accommodation and restaurants, outdoor cafés and bars, which are open all hours.

An excursion inland will lead you among vineyards, olive groves and almond plantations; or take in the quaint medieval city of Montblanc with its fine Gothic church. There are some interesting monastery ruins dating back to the 12th century at Poblet.

The Costa Dorada is well serviced by the A7 motorway, and by rail. Barcelona Airport receives regular flights from many cities around the world, and transfer shuttles and taxis are readily available to take you to your final destination.
