Stay by the Beach in Salou
The beaches and natural coves of Salou have attracted visitors ever since the middle of the 19th Century. In the Modernist era of the 1920s, a number of new hotels close to the beach in Salou helped it gain the nickname ‘the Beach of Europe’, and visitors today will find a range of hotels, guesthouses and apartments close to the legendary beach. Most of the attractions of the city are within walking distance of the beach and some are directly on the shoreline, such as the Luminous Fountains and the Salou Lighthouse. A good way to get a sense of Salou is to take the tourist train, which links all the beaches and coves via its network of routes.
Salou for Sun, Sand and Watersports
With a combined total of 1.5 miles of golden sands, the Llevant, Capellans and Potent beaches are the focal point of the seaside action in Salou. Here you will find many different ways to take to the water, from boat and fishing trips along the coast to water sports such as windsurfing, parasailing and snorkelling. Running parallel to Llevant Beach is the Passeig Jaume I, Salou’s main promenade. This palm tree-lined pedestrian street is home to numerous boutiques, bars and restaurants. Indeed, the ‘xiringuitos’ or beach bars are a highlight of Salou’s nightlife and the perfect spot to enjoy a cold drink with a view across the water. If you are looking for something a bit quieter, the many smaller sandy coves along the coast offer a great way of escaping the hustle and bustle of Salou’s main beaches.
