Costa Dorada - The Golden Coast
Spain's Costa Dorada (the Golden Coast) didn't get that name without reason, if is blessed with around 225 Km of golden sandy beaches, running south from Barcelona to the delta of the great river Ebro.
The resort of Sitges attracted wealthy Spaniards in the 19th century who built their mansions there, many of which are now preserved as hotels. There are a number of fine beaches at Sitges and it has maintained a lot of it's old charm, avoiding the development of high rise buildings.
Salou has long been a popular family destination with fine beaches of golden sand, some sheltered by pine trees. Now there is the added attraction of having the massive theme park, Port Aventura, on the outskirts.
Cambrils de Mar is a quiter place than Salou or Sitges and is known for it's fish restaurants, having been developed from an old fishing village.
The provincial city of Tarragona was important in Roman times, evidenced by the buildings and architecture that survive today.
The Ebro Delta forms a large area of wetland, supporting a wide variety of bird life including flamingos, the delta itself being the largest rice growing area in Europe, is surrounded by fruit trees, almonds and olives.
The Costa Dorada can be accessed via Reus Airport, plus there is the added bonus of the fast Euromed Train Service into Barcelona (around a 1 to 1 and 1/2 hour journey - some local stations may have slower regional trains).
