It goes almost without saying that holidays on the Costa Daurada (in its original Catalan name, Spanish: Costa Dorada) are most loved for the beaches. Well it’s not for nothing that this beautiful stretch of Catalonia is known as the ‘Gold Coast’. We’re talking 150 miles of glittering golden sand, warm, azure seas and plenty of promenades and marinas too. It’s a glistening sandbox of beach holiday fun that freckles the Costa Daurada far beyond the holiday hotspots of Salou and Cambrils. If sun-drenched beach breaks are your idea of heaven, Costa Daurada holidays won’t disappoint. The Costa Daurada is located along the coastline of the province of Tarragona.
Summer holidays to the Costa Daurada offer more deliciously hot sunshine than you can shake a parasol at, even when you stray away from the beach. Whether you’re on a white-knuckle ride in Portaventura, sending your credit card into meltdown with some shopping in Sitges or getting cultured up in Barcelona, your Costa Daurada holiday is dappled with sunshine. So even if you don’t spend your holidays on the Costa Daurada stretched out on the beach, you’ll still return home with a tan to be envious of.
Food-wise, holidays to the Costa Daurada stay firmly focused on the sea. From seafront cafes to speciality fish restaurants, there’s certainly no shortage of opportunities to sample a Catalan fish stew or a steaming dish of paella. So whether you’re after a luxurious hotel getaway or self catering holidays, on the Costa Daurada you’ve got it all.
