Apart from relaxing under the sun, there is a lot more to do at the beach, such as paddle surfing, kayaking, water skiing and even windsurfing. The wide range of activities for all the family includes cycling, kayaking, sailing, kite surfing, paddle surfing, parasailing or windsurfing, trekking, sailing and golfing.
Hot sunny days and clear Mediterranean waters are the ideal conditions for enjoying a range of water sports from water skiing and windsurfing to sailing and snorkelling. Head for Salou and Cambrils where you will find all the right equipment and maybe book a lesson or two to get you started.
You can also go on a trip, on a banana boat or a regular boat. If you want to enjoy the clear water and the beautiful seabed, snorkelling in this area is definitely recommended.
Costa Daurada is home of some of Spain’s (and Europe’s) finest golf courses. One right at your door at PortAventura Golf opened in 2008. Enjoy some sun, fresh air and exercise on the golf course. There are a few challenging courses along the coast, including those at Reus Aigüesverds, Masia Bach and Bonmont Terres Noves, with plenty of superb views to enjoy while you wait for your turn.
The Costa Daurada is a very pleasant region for road biking. There is a whole network of cycling paths here so you can get out and enjoy the countryside without any worries.
Look out for the greenways along abandoned railway tracks or head for the mountain biking centres at Amer, Quart and Castell d’Aro.
The promenade lends itself for a bike tour on a sunny day. Discover almost 20 kilometres of beautiful views and monuments!
If you are less active, then a trip on the local touristic train that offers various sightseeing routes around the area might be perfect for you. These mini trains offer sightseeing routes in Salou and Cambrils.
Onboard the train you can enjoy the cool sea breeze and breath-taking views of the monument of the Sanctuary of Mare de Déu del Camí, which dates from the 18th century, as well as the medieval tower of Ermita, which is also very special as it is home to the historical museum of Cambrils.
You will find excellent walking along the coast, especially in the Montsant Mountains where the network of trails will take you off the beaten track and closer to nature. The numerous hiking paths and sky-high mountains offer breath-taking views.
