Cap Salou is ideal for those who like their holidays peaceful and with a healthy dose of Catalonian culture. Tucked away on Spain’s north-eastern coast, Cap Salou is a sleepy resort, just a ten-minute drive from its noisier namesake Salou; perfect for those who want upbeat nightlife and low-tempo days. The beaches tend to be more secluded that those in the livelier resorts, offering private little coves, with shallow shores and golden sands. Perfect for families with younger children and couples looking to enjoy some quiet, quality downtime together, Cap Salou holidays are a little slice of paradise.
Things to do
If you can bear to tear yourself away from the beach or the hotel pool, you’ll find there are plenty of things to see and do on your holidays to Cap Salou. A low-key resort, there’s only a handful of restaurants and bars in town. If you want it livelier, hop on a bus for Salou. Families can take advantage of one of Europe’s biggest and best theme parks in nearby Portaventura, while couples might prefer to wander the cobbled streets and winding back alleys of Salou’s old town.
Salou’s beaches are tough to beat. Boasting the perfect combination of rocky shorelines and plush golden sand, there’s no going wrong. Doze off between the intimate craggy coves or relax among the palm trees which line the stunning boardwalk. The crystal clear water stretches for miles and remains pleasantly warm all year round. Why not have an ankle-deep stroll in the sea and watch the sunset to really appreciate the beauty of Cap Salou.
If you prefer your getaway to be more active than chilled, Cap Salou caters to near enough every type of pastime. Why not hire a bike for the afternoon to explore the city? PortAventura theme park and the water amusements of Costa Caribe aren’t far if you fancy a fun afternoon, and kids will love it. If you’d like something more tame, buy a snorkel or rent some rollerblades to explore both sea and land at your own pace.
Wind down with a cocktail after an exciting day. Cap Salou has a great variety of nightlife for couples, families and individuals alike. There’s a great range of British and Irish pubs for those looking for a home from home. Breezy beachfront bars are sure to appeal to the trendy crowd, with their contemporary style and chilled atmosphere. You’ll never want to go home.
