Costa Dorada holidays 2021

Tucked into the northeast corner of Spain, the Costa Dorada is a 216km run of beaches, pretty ports and tantalising towns backed by mountains. Expect fascinating historic sites and ample places to try delicious Catalan cuisine.

Costa Dorada translates as ‘Golden Coast’, and it's no misnomer. The sweeping line of the coast boasts many Blue Flag-winning beaches of all shapes and sizes that ensure it is one of the most popular regions of Spain. Meanwhile cities, towns and resorts such as Tarragona, Salou and Cambrils collectively tick every box when it comes to history, culture, cuisine and memorable experiences.

Natural attractions of Costa Dorada

There’s far more natural beauty than the pristine shoreline. Look inwards to discover trails through pine forests and ascending mountains, routes to old monasteries and through medieval villages. Meanwhile, coastal routes linking the major towns and a trip birdwatching in the region’s largest wetland, Sèquia Major Natural Area, offer further glimpses of the scenic landscape.
