The 10 best tips for planning your visit to Salou
1- Take a pen and paper or phone and write down: the best sunsets can be seen from the viewpoints of La Bocana, Po Roig, Punta Prima and Punta del Cavall.
2- Whether for bathing or strolling along the shore in any season of the year, Salou has 9 beaches full of services and fully adapted. In addition, there are up to 25 beaches and coves of all sizes in the municipality. What’s more, all year round we have a programme of #salouplaya365 activities, completely FREE!
3- The Jaume I promenade is home to the Caracoles, Cibernética, Laberinto and Luminosa fountains, as well as our giant Landmark, sculptures and monuments such as the dona Puntaire, King Jaume I, Pescadores and Pilons. But did you know that we have the King Jaume I digital gymkhana to spend a fun hour with the family trying to solve it?
4- Take your snorkelling equipment: goggles with snorkel or mask and flippers. Probably the most natural and ideal environment with practically crystal clear waters for snorkelling is the Punta del Cavall cove.
5- Our iconic modernist-style Chalet Bonet, located at the beginning of Jaume I Promenade, designed by one of Antoni Gaudí’s disciples (Domènec Sugranyes), is one of the most Instagrammed places in the town. Do you upload your photo with the hashtag #visitsalou?
6- Cap Salou is an area of great natural, historical and geological interest. Places like the beach of Penya Tallada, the park of Cala Morisca or the wild beach of Reguerot with the path along the Talaia may be its best examples.
7- For those of us who like to eat well, the destination offers multiple options with all kinds of cuisine: Mediterranean, international or tapas. There is even a Michelin-starred restaurant, one of the four on the Costa Dorada.
8- The Coastal Path is a route of almost 7kms that runs along the entire Mediterranean coastline of the coast of Salou. The route can be complemented with many of the newly opened and spectacular viewpoints!
9- Attention golf lovers! Salou has, thanks to the Infinitum Golf courses, 2 18-hole courses for professional players but also 1 9-hole course for amateurs. And if you want to complete your day, the Infinitum Beach Club is a place to relax with its infinity pools.
10- Salou also has buildings with history such as the monument to Jaume I, the monument to the Fishermen on the quay, Pilons or the Torre Vella, an old defence tower built in 1530 which has now been converted into a cultural centre dedicated to hosting art exhibitions.
Ah! And don’t forget that throughout the year we are accompanied by events such as the famous Cós Blanc in February, the great triathlon in April, the Nits Daurades in August, the King Jaume I festival in September or the Rally of Catalonia in October. And all these plans, always accompanied with the fun parks Port Aventura World and Ferrari Land, of course!
