Your guide to La Pineda holidays
La Pineda is most famous for its beaches, with their clear waters and golden sands. You can visit the water sports centres here to delve beneath the Mediterranean on a scuba diving or snorkelling excursion, or get your heart pumping with an action-packed day of windsurfing. Go horseback riding on the beach or visit one of the area’s golf courses to practice your swing. Ancient monasteries like Scala Dei are within easy reach, while Tarragona offers a walkable city centre with international brand names and chic boutiques.
There’s an abundance of historic villages located within easy reach of La Pineda, including Cambrils. This is a must-visit destination for history buffs with its well-preserved fortresses and castle. La Pineda holidays are particularly popular with families due to the close proximity of two major theme parks. The Aquapolis water park is located within the town offering high-octane water slides and artificial waves to navigate. For rollercoasters and themed rides for all ages, visit Port Aventura theme park.
The primary allure of La Pineda is its pristine series of beaches, offering an unbroken 3km stretch of luscious golden sand. The beaches have been awarded a Blue Flag status for cleanliness, with the soft sand and gentle incline making La Pineda safe for all ages. There’s a water sports centre with windsurfing equipment, jet skis, pedalos and sea kayaks for hire, and you can also rent umbrellas or sun loungers here to stake out your spot on the sand.
The main beach, Playa La Pineda, is marked by its beach bars, sun shades and volleyball courts. Stroll along the adjoining esplanade to visit waterside restaurants and bars or venture onto the sand to relax. If you’re in search of a bit of privacy during your La Pineda holidays, the northern end of the beach tends to be quieter. To the south of the town, you’ll find Playa del Raco, marked by a rock breakwater. This part of the beach is ideal for smaller children with its rock-free seabed and shallow, warm water.
