The Costa Daurada stretches for for fifty miles and is packed with places easily reached from Salou by car. Check out the Medieval towns of Montblanc and Falset, or visit some of the vineyards of the region to try one of the five local designations of origin. Birdwatchers and other wildlife lovers could use the many options for car rental in Salou to access the Elbro Delta, a UNESCO-listed Biosphere Reserve with incredible birdlife and other natural wonders.
Your rental car will also give you access to nearby Tarragona, only seven miles from Salou and packed with attractions, including Tarragona Cathedral, the Tarragona Amphitheatre, the National Archaeological Museum and the Plaza de Toros. The mix of Medieval and modern is what makes Tarragona well worth a visit during your time in Salou.
Or why not head an hour up the coast to Barcelona? The Catalan capital is only an hour by car along the coast from Salou and is truly one of Europe’s greatest cities. Don’t miss the incredible architecture of Antonio Gaudi, the Picasso Museum or a stroll along the Ramblas. And if you have the opportunity, catch a match from local heroes FC Barcelona, whether in the Camp Nou stadium or in a nearby pub.
