Holidays in Salou offer life-long happy memories. The resort sits on Catalonia’s sparkling Mediterranean coastline, but there’s plenty of allure beyond its golden sandy beaches. Theme parks and water parks will keep adrenaline junkies entertained, while a varied cuisine of traditional Spanish tapas and international dishes will satiate all appetites. Sizzlingly hot in summer and pleasantly mild in autumn and winter, Salou is a great year-round holiday destination.

Outdoor activities in Salou

With gorgeous weather for much of the year, holidays to Salou are perfect for outdoor adventures on both land and sea. Golfers will love playing rounds at Mediterránea Beach Club & Golf Community, a huge resort with 45 holes among olive and pine trees.
