Project Sea Rutes in Salou

Salou allows you to discover the magic of our coastline’s seabed thanks to the project Sea Routes. What is it about?

The Sea Routes offer 2 sea routes:

1 - 962 metres from Capellans Beach to Llarga Beach (Difficulty: medium / Level: amateur / Length: 1 km / Estimated time: 15-22min / Period: from Easter to the first week of November)

2 - 970 metres from Cala Font to Llarga Beach (Difficulty: easy / Level: amateur / Length: 1 km / Estimated time: 15-22min / Period: from Easter to the first week of November)

Buoys: A total of 10 white spherical-conical buoys have been installed (8 of 40 cm diameter and 2 of 60 cm). These buoys are manufactured by rotomoulding system, with low density polyethylene resin and UV stabilized to avoid colour degradation. The buoys have distance indications every 50 m and the image of a swimmer.

Anchoring train: The anchoring train is made of hot-dip galvanized steel chain, which in the case of the 60 cm diameter buoys is 10 mm thick and in the case of the 40 cm buoys is 8 mm thick. They are supported to the bottom by marine concrete ballast, in a parallelepiped shape of 50x50x20cm and with a unit weight of 125 kg. The 60 cm buoys have two ballast units. The 40 cm buoys, on the other hand, have one unit of ballast, which are fastened together by means of 10 mm "Lira" type shackles in all cases to guarantee the fastening.

These new routes have been especially identified and studied so that open-water swimmers and triathletes, as well as swimming and sport clubs, can enjoy the variety and richness of Salou’s sea floor.
