Costa Daurada
Made-to-measure holidays

 

With more than 80 kilometres of coastline, the Costa Daurada offers over 60 beaches on which to enjoy the best Mediterranean family holidays. Its excellent climate all year round is perfect for enjoying outdoor activities at any time, by the sea or in the countryside, including water sports, hiking, cycling, etc. 

The interior of the Costa Daurada is a land full of contrasts, as the colours change with the seasons in the Montsant Mountains Natural Park or the Poblet Woods. Another highlight is the delicious local cuisine, part of the famous Mediterranean diet and recognised as World Heritage by UNESCO. 

All in all, it is a unique cultural heritage, with traditions that show the character of the region to its visitors and so many things to do that time just flies by!


More than 60 beaches are waiting for you

From long stretches of fine golden sand to small, tree-lined coves; from cliffs that jut into the sea to sand dunes with native vegetation. Multiple awards for the quality of the waters and the beaches; accessibility, cleanliness, sustainability and environmental management. 

If you want to enjoy beaches with shallow crystalline waters, fine sand that turns a beautiful golden colour with the reflection of the sun, barefoot strolls along the shore; if you want to discover a new beach every day. Look no further! Get away from it all on the best coastline on the Mediterranean, the Costa Daurada!

Time to have fun with the family!

A family holiday on the Costa Daurada is much more than spending a few days together; it’s having at your disposal a huge range of activities and services especially designed and organised for kids. Six resorts on the Costa Daurada have the Catalan Regional Government’s Family Holiday Certification: Salou, Cambrils, Vila-seca, La Pineda Platja, Calafell, El Vendrell and the Muntanyes de Prades. In all these you’ll find tailor-made proposals for families, ranging from entertainment and fun activities to specially designed menus for young gourmands, and much, much more.

If you’d like to share the excitement of an adrenaline rush, the thrilling rides of PortAventura World –Dragon Khan, Stampida, Hurakan Condor and Shambala– await you; or if you’re fascinated by the world of fast cars, don’t miss Ferrari Land. Never-ending fun for the most adventurous and a special themed area –Sésamo Aventura– await smaller children.

Costa Daurada, World Heritage

A rich cultural heritage allows you to discover the history the Costa Daurada is heir to. Monuments that testify to a splendid past and magnificent landscapes that have inspired such universal geniuses as Antoni Gaudí, Pau Casals and Joan Miró. 

Would you like to see how the Iberians lived? Go back in time to the ancient Roman empire? Stroll in the shade of impressive mediaeval walls? See buildings that are true jewels of Modernist architecture? All this and much more awaits you on the Costa Daurada!

You can also visit the places classified by UNESCO as World Heritage sites: thirteen monuments from ancient Roman Tarraco; the Monastery of Poblet, which still has an active monastic life and is one of the stops on the Cistercian Route; the cave paintings preserved in Montblanc as a testimony to the culture and religion of the first settlers of the Prades Mountains; castells or human towers, which originated on the Costa Daurada and are now one of its most deeply-rooted traditions, attracting thousands of enthusiasts to the important annual festivals; and finally, don’t forget to enjoy the Costa Daurada’s best gastronomy, which is based on the ingredients of the Mediterranean diet, also considered World Heritage.


A pleasure for the palate

What would you like for lunch? It’s a difficult choice to make when you know the traditional fish and seafood dishes of the Costa Daurada. Fisherman’s rice, noodles, romesquet casseroles, blue fish cooked following the fishermen’s own recipes... 

However, the ingredients don’t only come from the sea. Calçots (a kind of spring onion eaten grilled with a delicious sauce) are perhaps one of the Costa Daurada’s best-known dishes, not forgetting “juicy omelette” or escudella broth.

And to accompany a good meal, it’s no easy task to decide which of the excellent local wines to choose. Their quality is recognised by the Costa Daurada’s five designations of origin: Priorat, Montsant, Conca de Barberà, Tarragona and Penedès, as well as that part of its territory that is included in the Cava designation of origin. What a difficult choice!
