Salou in winter in 3 days
Salou has some characteristic weather conditions that are ideal to do some sport and enjoy other outdoor activities throughout the year. If you’d like to do some sport, Salou has it all.
If you’d rather relax though, you can begin by visiting the City Park.
This almost 4-acre park is surrounded by local plants, flowers and water plants; undoubtedly, the ideal place to stroll around with no hassle.
If you prefer to enjoy running, the promenades –Jaume I and Miramar– are the perfect setting for this sport.
However, if you’d rather do trekking, you can do so in any of the 9 beaches and coves you’ll find in Salou, where you can feel the sea breeze caressing your skin.
Or, if you’re a bicycle fan, you can follow any of Salou’s cycle lanes and get to nearby villages, such as Vila-seca, La Pineda and Cambrils.
Love mountain-bikes? Cap Salou provides you with a Cross Country circuit, unique in the Tarragona area, with two levels of difficulty: professionals and amateurs.
Salou is an excellent destination to enjoy sports, as it offers a wide variety of facilities for the practice of tennis, paddle tennis, swimming and golf; the latter, thanks tot the outstanding facilities of the Lumine Mediterránea Beach & Golf Community, with courses surrounded by nature, beautiful ponds and sea views.
It’s lunch time, so you’d better try local, Mediterranean and international cuisine, with superb local wines and sparkling wines, aka cavas, of the 7 nearby Designation of Origin.
Then, in the afternoon, why not visiting Tarragona, which was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO back in 2000. The Cathedral, the Amphitheatre, the Forum and the Walls, plus many other archaeological remains, will allow you to find out everything you need to know about a city built by the Romans.
In the outskirts of the city, you can find even more sites worth visiting, such as Pont del Diable, Pedrera del Mèdol and Arc de Berà, among many others.
After walking round the oldest part of the city, you can visit La Rambla and get to the Balcó del Mediterrani, from which you can enjoy some pretty stunning views of the Mediterranean Sea.
The third day, we propose you a tourist route "El Paisatge dels Genis" (The Landscape of Geniuses) you can do your own, at your pace, starting from the capital city of Costa Daurada. It will take you round the essence of the landscapes of Costa Daurada and Terres de l'Ebre, which inspired the works and personality of the 4 greats: Antoni Gaudí, Pau Casals, Joan Miró and Pablo Picasso. Visit museums and cultural centres in Reus, El Vendrell, Mont-roig and Horta de Sant Joan.
Of course, if you’re willing to spend a unique and exciting day with the entire family, you have to visit PortAventura World –opened from 7 April 2017 until 7 January 2018––. The theme park –one of the best in Europe– offers six different worlds where adventure, fun and thrills are everywhere. Plus, this year is especially exciting with the arrival of Ferrari Land.
Then, between September and November, it’s time for Halloween, with terrifying characters and shows that will wow the whole family; and, from November to January, it’s Christmas Time, with lights and colours, huge presents and many other surprises that ensure some pretty amazing holidays.
