Things to Do

Here is a selection of some of the main attractions in and around Salou.

The City of Barcelona

The city of Barcelona is just over one hour by train or car and it is a definite place to visit. Any trip to Barcelona should include a visit to see any of the buildings designed by Antoni Gaudi; the Sagrada Familia, Parc Guell or Casa Batillo.

Or why not take a tour around the Nou Camp, Barcelona FC's home ground or simply walk along "Las Ramblas" and soak up the Catalunyan atmosphere.

There is so much to see and do in the city and a great way to sightsee if you have a limited time is to take one of the tour buses. These are very reasonably priced have an audio commentary and offer unlimited on/off stops on one of three circular routes around Barcelona's tourist attractions.

The City of Tarragona

Salou is an ideal place to make yourself a base to explore Tarragona or the surrounding area.

The ancient Roman city of Tarragona still has several Roman remains
and various museums dedicated to the Roman era. There is a cathedral dating back to 16th century and lots of shops and restaurants.

On Sundays there is an open air market at Bonavista (just outside Tarragona), which sells everything from clothes to livestock.
It is said to be the third largest outdoor market in Europe. Buses run to/from Salou to the market.

Port Aventura Theme Park

This park has been rated by many as the best theme park in Europe.
It has rides for people of all ages and the shows are spectacular.

Try "Shambala" the highest roller coaster ride in Europe. There are plenty of shops and places to eat also.  You can spend all day and not get to do everything, so it's recommended that you have a pass for at least two days.

A GREAT DAY OUT FOR ALL THE FAMILY!

FERRARI LAND

Ferrari lovers will have a new theme park at PortAventura Resort, called FerrariLand. This brand new feature is dedicated to the Prancing Horse and will cover a surface area of 60,000 square metres. Offering its visitors unique emotions, feelings and adventures. FerrariLand will deliver benchmark attractions on a global scale, largely family-oriented but with a good dose of adrenaline to create dream visits that embody the true spirit of PortAventura. Fans of Ferrari and the world of speed will have the chance to ride the highest roller coaster in Europe, standing at a height of 112 metres. This vertical accelerator is an incredible experience for speed lovers: passengers experience the same sensations as in racing with an acceleration of 180 km/h in just 5 seconds!

Downhill Bikes

Voted the number one excursion in Salou on Tripadvisor, it's a great way to spend a morning or a whole day away from the resort.

It's not just for keen experienced bikers. It's for all ages and all abilities. So even if you haven't been on a bike for a while, this is still a trip for you.

As it says in the title, you are taken up into the mountains behind the resort by minibus and you ride back down, but not all the way!

Rob, Mandy and the team make it a great day out. Do something different. Give it a go!

Aquopolis

This is the waterpark where you can swim with dolphins!!

It's a fantastic place and the best water park in the area, especially if you have young children. There are shows with the sea animals, water slides, wave machines and pools.

Aquopolis is situated in the next resort of La Pineda and served by a regular, frequent bus service, so it's very easy to get to.

It's family friendly and action packed FUN!

PORT AVENTURA GOLF COURSES

The Lumine golf courses are part of the Port Aventura complex. The three courses giVes golfers a variety of courses to play.

The North course provides sensations, the Centre course provides entertainment, and the South Course provides... a challenge. Port Aventura trusted Greg Norman and Green Project to design three golf courses where both amateur and professional players can enjoy a great golfing experience.

The golf courses opened to the public in the summer 2008. Because of the temperate climate of this part of Spain, the courses provide the oppurtunity to play 365 days per year.

GO KARTING SALOU

Just outside Salou is the Go Karting track. If you want to try some
track racing yourself, maybe after an inspirational visit to Ferrari Land or watching the RACC Rally, then this is the place to give it a go.

It's not just for the experienced driver as they give instruction to novices. They have other fairground attractions and a cafe/bar.

There is also a free coutresy bus which runs from the main promenade and Plaza Europa to the track.
