The commitment to the highest quality services and facilities in Salou has led to our attaining several certifications. Since 2003, Salou holds the Family Tourism Destination seal, the first Catalan town to receive this distinction. Its commitment to obtain the distinction of Family Tourism Destination is the fruit of the constant work of the administration and the private sector. Both have focused their efforts on providing high quality services for families, on public facilities, accommodation, restaurants and other services. Salou has also been awarded the seal as a Sport Tourism Destination, for football.

Salou’s commitment to quality is clear through the certifications it has been awarded, which are recognised both in Spain and internationally, for the quality of its services and its environmental management. All of Salou’s beaches, this destination’s main attraction, are certified by ISO 14.001:2004, which guarantees the proper environmental management of these spaces. The two main tourist beaches have both been awarded the Q for Quality for Beaches and UNE 187,001: 2008 for the quality of its services (lifeguard and rescue, safety, cleanliness, information, leisure, entertainment...). The Blue Flag also waves on the Llevant and Capellans beaches, which guarantees the quality of their waters and sand, among others.
