A truly awesome theme park awaits you at PortAventura, and there’s 50 miles of golden beaches on this stretch of coast too. Lively Salou is the most popular place to hang your hat, but you’ll be spoilt for scenery no matter where you stay in this history-drenched, traditional seaside retreat.
It’s not surprising Costa Dorada means ‘golden coast’. The brilliant beaches here are to die for, and more than 80 of them have a Blue Flag planted in the grains for cleanliness. You’ve got rocky coves and verdant headlands to explore by these staggering bronzed sands, too.
Weather in Costa Dorada
The Costa Dorada enjoys a temperate Mediterranean climate characterized by a clear, sharp atmosphere and skies of intense blue, in winter, thanks to the mestral winds that blow from the north-east and in summer, to the garbí, or south-easterly winds. They keep the humidity low and blow away any mist or fog.
