Travellers can look forward to excellent activities, amazing sights and fascinating architecture along with some fantastic beaches, designed perfectly for ultimate relaxation. Even if you’re booking your holiday at short notice and don’t have time to plan ahead, there’s no need to worry. This Spanish resort has everything you need for a tranquil break away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
1. It’s not all about relaxing; you can enjoy some thrills!
Although Cambrils has a reputation as a relaxing beach resort, a lot of fun awaits for adrenaline junkies.
Jumpland Adventura Ecologica is one option that should not be missed. Visitors can climb along circuits suspended in mid-air, taking in gloriously scenic views. There are options for all abilities here so, whether you’re a climbing beginner or more experienced, you will find something to try. A giant zip line is also available, along with a specialised footgolf pitch!
If you’re looking to try something new, X-Wave in Cambrils harbour should be right at the top of your list. Flyboarding has emerged in recent years as an exciting new watersport and, even though it looks like something from an action movie, it is relatively easy to pick up. The resort team can help you understand the basics and you’ll be feeling the thrill of hovering over the sea in no time.
2. Explore the beauty of Sama Park
Sama Park is a wonderful spot for a picnic or a leisurely walk, where visitors can take in jaw-dropping scenery, beautiful wildlife and a romantic atmosphere.
The area features an enormous palace, surrounded by hundreds of species of exotic plants. Its 14 hectares were planned by Josep Mestres Fontserè, who constructed the great waterfall of Ciutadella Park in Barcelona.
In the current day, Sama Park is commonly used for weddings and it’s easy to see why. It boasts a true fairytale aesthetic that has to be seen to be believed. It offers a refreshing change of pace and tourists can spend hours taking in its magical atmosphere.
3. There is lovely architecture to appreciate
There is a host of incredible buildings to admire across Cambrils, offering excellent photo opportunities. Top of this list is perhaps the Torre de l’Ermita, which has been declared a Cultural Asset of National Interest.
The building dates back to the 14th century and is a truly magnificent sight. Within the development, you can explore a unique exhibition featuring documents and photographs from years gone by, highlighting the town’s significance in the Middle Ages.
Torre del Port is another excellent attraction. This 17th-century watchtower was used to defend the settlement from pirates and hosts temporary exhibitions that give a fascinating insight into the history of Cambrils.
4. It’s the perfect beach resort
There is a total of nine beaches across the town, which have all been awarded a blue flag by the European Union. This ensures a high-quality experience for visitors, including excellent sand and facilities.
Arguably the most popular shoreline spot for tourists is Prat d’en Flores, where travellers can look forward to 967 metres of space to explore. Facilities here are excellent, with plenty of food available nearby and hassle-free disabled access.
Da Vilafortuny is another incredible beach and it is perfect for surfers as well as sunbathers. At 1,415 metres long, it’s the perfect place to go on a sunset walk and take in the majestic Mediterranean.
Other fantastic seafronts to consider are D’Horta, La Llosa and L’Ardiaca, which have a wonderfully laid-back vibe and small crowds. Many of the spots offer open water activities including snorkelling and canoeing so, whether you want to explore the sea or work on your tan, Cambrils has excellent options.
