Costa Dorada holidays – Resort Guides
There are three main tourist centres within Costa Dorada, those being Salou, La Pineda and Cambrils. Salou makes up the ideal holiday package for families and groups. The modern resort, heaving with hotels, bars and entertainment facilities all geared to satisfying the every whim of the international visitor. Just on the out skirt of Salou is Port Aventura, one of Europe's largest adventure parks which since opening has been offering a Disney style entertainment centre which is the main magnet for many international holidaymakers. If you're looking for a purpose-built holiday town with all imaginable entertainment on your doorstep then Salou's the place for you.
When it comes to child friendliness, holidays in La Pineda get a gold star. Much quieter than its boisterous neighbour, Salou, La Pineda is the sort of place where you can chill out and catch some rays, while the kids splash about in safe waters and do the 'bucket and spade' thing on the beautiful, sandy beach. That's not to say it's only for families. Couples too will get a kick out of the laid back atmosphere and top notch facilities.
With holidays in Cambrils you're in for a beach break treat. Half way along the golden coast, where the sand meets the sea in a sparkling display of gold and sapphire, you're perfectly placed for sun-drenched summer holidays. And this seaside sparkler strikes just the right balance between sleepy fishing village and all-singing holiday resort too. Add to the mix some fantastic restaurants, stylish hotels and a few scintillating shops and you've got all the ingredients for a great Cambrils holiday.
