Family Tourism: Beaches, Cultural Heritage and Activities

The Costa Daurada, located in the heart of the Mediterranean, south of Barcelona, is the ideal destination for a family holiday. With four towns recognised by the Regional Government of Catalonia as Family Tourism Destinations – Salou, Calafell, Cambrils and Vila-Seca – the Costa Daurada offers services, activities and facilities adapted to families.

Thanks to its privileged climate, families can enjoy, all year round, leisure and cultural activities as well as activities related to history and sport during their holidays on the Costa Daurada.

On the coast, they can enjoy pleasant days on beaches of fine golden sand and shallow waters. Or, if they prefer, they can enjoy the wide range of activities available to have fun in the sea and in the sun.

Discovering the Costa Daurada’s cultural heritage is also highly recommended. They can relive the Iberian past at the Iberian Village at Calafell, visit the monuments of the Roman Tarraco declared as World Heritage by UNESCO, discover the Cistercian Route monasteries of Santes Creus and Poblet – also declared as World Heritage – and get to know the figure of Gaudí by visiting the Gaudí Centre in Reus and admiring the Modernist building of his disciples.

The interior towns of the Costa Daurada also provide multiple options to enjoy with the family, discovering towns where time seems to have stopped, and to enjoy adventure sports, including hiking, bike excursions and horse riding. They can get to know natural areas of great beauty, such as the nature park of the Montsant mountain range or the Prades mountains.
