The beaches of Salou: Llevant beach

At dawn, workers make sure everything is just perfect in Llevant, the most urban beach in Salou that, with 1,200m is located just next to Passeig Jaume I, in Costa Daurada’s capital city. Meanwhile, the earliest sportsmen and sportswomen do some running along the beach, while other prefer to enjoy this incredible natural environment swimming in the warm Mediterranean waters.

As the day goes on, the number of users attending the beach increases, attracted by the sheer number of facilities that will certainly suit every need. At around 10am, you can start getting fit thanks to the fitness and gym area. This will remain open until 6 September, from 10am to 8pm. The price is just 4€ per day, but you can get great discounts if you choose the weekly pass, at just 19€.

In this area, you can also play basketball, beach volley, beach tennis, futsal, badminton, table tennis, chess or footvolley. If you’d rather go for instructor-led classes though, you can also take part in keep-fit classes, aerobic, zumba and belly dancing between 29 June and 6 September.

Besides, Llevant beach offers a Kids Club, between 29 June and 31 August (11am to 7pm) led by professionals that will make sure your children are ok and that they have proper fun. 1-hour tickets cost just 3,10€; 2-hour tickets are 5,10€, and 3-hour tickets are 7,45€.

Enjoy a selection of refreshing drinks and cocktails in Llevant’s beach bars, together with other “tapas” and “paella”, so that you can make the most of the day spending the whole day in the beach.

By the evening, Llevant beach provides users with a quieter atmosphere, as people attending the beach at this time are mostly trying to relax lying on their towels and enjoying the last heat of the day.

And when the sun is going down, the light of Salou’s sunsets becomes simply stunning, especially when seen from Pilons. This sculpture, designed by Antoni Roselló, produces different shapes depending on the point of view. For example, from the sea it does really look like an enormous sail. This is a truly magical moment for photo enthusiasts, or for just relaxing while listening to the water’s murmur.
