Salou in winter in 1 day
The extraordinary maritime façade and the excellent climate conditions of our town throughout the entire year make it easy for us to enjoy Salou.
If you can spend 24h, why not being in touch with nature. Mornings are the best moment of the day to walk along the Coastal Path, a 1.2-mile pathway built following the coastline –going from Pilons to Llarga Beach–. The course allows users to enjoy the incredible natural and landscape richness around it.
Those searching for a proper adventure can discover an even more natural 2.5-mile path –taking from Replanells to Racó–, which leads to Salou’s Lighthouse, while enjoying the sea breeze, as well as the pleasant heat of the sun in winter. Don’t forget to discover some of the best local beaches: Capellans Beach, Cala Llenguadets, Llarga Beach, Penya Tallada, Cala Font, Cala Vinya and Cala Crancs, besides other geographical features such as Punta de Po-Roig and Punta del Cavall, with outstanding views.
After a long and delightful walk, it’s time to have lunch in any of the various restaurants in Salou that specialise in local, Mediterranean and international food, located around Carrer Barcelona street; all this, together with the best wines and sparkling wines, or cavas, of our territory.
Once lunch is over, strolling becomes the best activity for a proper digestion. Find a spectacular sample of local architecture by Passeig Jaume I: the so-called Xalets Modernistes, or Modernist Villas, built in the late 19th century. In the same way, you can visit locations such as the Port, the Marina, the Monument to Fisherman and, right in the middle of the main boulevard, the Monument to Jaume I. You can also walk on the beach and by the sea in both Llevant and Ponent beaches.
We recommend that you visit the shopping area of Carrer Barcelona street –located in Salou’s city centre–, the ideal area to purchase various items, or visit Torre Vella (opened from Monday to Friday afternoons), the Carrilet Old Train Station, located nearby or the Santa Maria del Mar Church.
And for those active ones, we recommend you to visit Cambrils on foot or by bicycle, while admiring the superb maritime façade, the fishing port and the arrival of fishing boats. Salou also provides you with various mostly-flat cycle lanes distributed all across our town, which are ideal for families.
And don’t forget to capture the best sunsets in Costa Daurada from Pilons, Punta de Po-Roig and Salou’s Lighthouse viewpoint –opened until sunset–, where red, blue and ochre colours turn the sky into a truly unforgettable experience.
