One of the main attractions of Salou is the PortAventura complex, which is a self-contained resort. It features the main theme park, as well as an aquatic park and four-star accommodation. If you visit the theme park you can experience one of the fastest roller coasters in Europe, as well as many other rides.
If you fancy something a little bit more relaxing on your holiday in Salou, then there are a variety of historic buildings to visit. These include the area around the Old Town and the Torre Vella, which is a 16th-century watch and defence tower. The town also features a monument to James I, who sailed from the port to capture Majorca and the Church of Santa Maria del Mar. Just outside the main resort is the town of Tarragona, with its extensive Roman history. On a visit here you can see the aqueduct, burial site and a range of other important ruins.
Of course no beach holiday would be complete without some rest and relaxation and there's plenty of opportunity to do just that when you stay in Salou hotels. The clean and safe sandy beaches include 34 Blue Flag sites and have clear and shallow waters, perfect for the family market.
The main beaches include Playa Levante, Playa Poniente and Playa de Capellans. The resort itself is fairly compact, but blends into La Pineda in the east and Cambrils in the west. Along the landscaped promenade you'll find a wealth of restaurants and cafés, serving everything from traditional Spanish tapas and paella to a range of international cuisines.
