Costa Dorada

Costa Dorada is a paradise for sun-loving family people. The amount of golden sandy beaches is why this area is called the Costa Dorada which means Golden Coast. The protection of the surrounding mountain range ensures a stable climate. The beaches here shelve gently into the sea making it popular for all ages.

The Costa Dorada is the most southern part of Catalunya. The Costa Dorada covers a coast line of 216 km and it goes from Cunit in the north to the end of the Delta del Ebro river in the south. The resorts along the coast have mainly been built up around fishing villages. Between the sea and the backdrop of mountains there is a wide area of farmland, small towns and villages in which you can find olive groves and vineyards.

This area now caters for an average of 3.500.000 visitors a year. The main resorts in the Costa Dorada are:

Salou – Home to Port Aventura and just minutes away from the Festival Village apartments.
Cap Salou – Just located on the edge of Salou and is home to Festival Village.
