Fiests on the Sands


From bustling promenades to sunny golden sands, this coast has its pick of great resorts. Costa Dorada is also renowned for its lively fiestas and you can enjoy the biggest of them all in June, when a medley of music and colourful dancing fill the streets of Cambrils to honour San Pedro (or St Peter). If you’re summer holiday starts later, September sees the Fiesta of Santa Tecla held in Tarragona, when a traditional parade hits the seaside town. Mark your calendar for the annual Corpus Christi flower festival too, when locals lay out intricate floral patterns on the streets of Sitges.

Family Fun


The PortAventura theme park adds massive fun factor to the Costa Dorada, with six zones jam-packed with roaring rides, spectacular shows and popular play areas. Thrill seekers should hold on tight for Dragon Khan and Furius Baco, while little ones will love the Sesame Street zone. There’s also the Costa Caribe aqua park, for thrills, spills and water play and the Aquapolis waterpark. Wherever you stay you’re sure to find restaurants that welcome kids, or spend the evening in some of Salou’s great family bars – try Chaplins for entertainment for all ages.

Shop for Bargains


Shop for bargains at the Bonavista Market on Sunday mornings, where hundreds of stalls pop up selling clothes, jewellery and pottery. It’s also where the locals shop for fresh fruits and seafood. The old, historical part of Cambrils also hosts a weekly general market, where hungry holidaymakers can pick up olive oil, churros and other treats, alongside other stalls where you can shop for antiques, books and other relics.
