June is just around the corner, which means that soon we will be able to officially welcome you to the most cheerful and fun season of the year, in which we will be able to enjoy the wonderful beaches of Spain . And we are lucky to live in a country that has a lot to offer as far as the coast is concerned.
Today we want to locate ourselves in Catalonia to tell you about the Costa Dorada , the beautiful stretch of Tarragona’s coastline, which does not receive the attention it deserves because the impressive Costa Brava is located in the same autonomous community. Today, however, we want to show you that a beach vacation in the province of Tarragona is also worth it. To achieve this, we are going to tell you about some of the best beaches and coves in this part of the Catalan coastline that stretches for 92 kilometers. Would you like to join us? We assure you that you will not regret it!
Cala Fonda (Waikiki Beach)
The first corner that we want to show you is Cala Fonda, also known as Waikiki Beach. It is a naturist beach, isolated and difficult to access that does not have any type of service. Belonging to the Tamarit-Punta de la Mora area of natural interest, it is protected from the winds by large cliffs and offers shallow waters and fine sand.
Secondly, we want to talk to you about Cala Forn, a beautiful cove located in an undeveloped area of l’Ametlla de Mar. It is a beach with crystal clear waters that is quite well equipped, being able to find a beach bar, WC, lifeguard service , showers … It even has parking, so you can get there by car.
Santes Creus Beach
We continue in l’Ametlla de Mar to tell you about Santes Creus Beach, a virgin cove located in an area with a steep profile and surrounded by Mediterranean vegetation. It is composed of rocks and pebbles and does not have any type of service. Of course, although it is quite secluded, access to the beach is quite easy. In fact, it can be reached by car.
Playa de la Roca Plana
Calabeig Beach, also known as La Roca Plana, could not be missing from this list. It is an isolated sandy area with difficult access that is inside a natural space with a high risk of fire, in the municipality of Altafulla. Considered a nudist beach, it offers a beautiful natural environment surrounded by greenery. It is very close to Cala Fonda.
On the other hand, we want to talk to you about Xelín Beach, which is located between the municipality of l’Ametlla de Mar and the Tres Calas urbanization. Protected by pine forests and bushes, this 120-meter-long beach is made up of pebbles and small rocky areas and has moderate waves. It is a beach easily accessible and is particularly remarkable for its seabed, ideal for practicing diving.
La Pineda Beach
Another sandy area that could not be missing from the list is La Pineda Beach, one of the longest on the Costa Dorada. With fine golden sand, this Vilaseca beach is divided into three parts and has the main rescue and lifeguard services and all kinds of amenities . In addition, it is adapted for people with reduced mobility and is easily accessible.
We also want to tell you about Creixell Beach, which stretches for two kilometers between Comarruga and Torredembarra. Here you will find fine golden sand and a quite calm atmosphere. Of course, it is a place of easy access and with all kinds of services: showers, toilets, cleaning, surveillance, access for people with reduced mobility, rental of umbrellas …
Finally, and aware that we have left many beautiful beaches in the pipeline, we are going to talk about Cunit Beach, which stretches for 2 and a half kilometers, dividing into eight coves due to the presence of seven breakwaters . Here you will enjoy a quiet and cozy atmosphere.
