Are you thinking of spending your summer holidays in Catalonia ? Well, you should know that it is a fantastic choice! And it is that this autonomous community can boast of having everything the traveler can look for: spectacular natural landscapes, cosmopolitan cities, monuments, important buildings, a wide cultural and leisure offer, excellent gastronomy … Of course, we cannot forget the Beaches.
Although when talking about the Catalan coast we often focus on the Costa Brava, the truth is that in the province of Tarragona you can also find spectacular sandy areas. Today at Vuela Viajes we want to show you some of the best. Would you like to join us?
Punta de la Guineu beach
First of all, we want to tell you about Punta de la Guineu beach, which has fine golden sands and warm and very calm waters. In addition, it offers all kinds of services: first aid and rescue, sun lounger rental, access for people with reduced mobility, showers, toilets, bar, parking… As if that were not enough, different water sports can be practiced on the beach. It should also be borne in mind that it is very close to the Roc de Sant Gaietá , a curious enclave of Mediterranean-style houses built very close to the sea.
Long Beach of Tarragona
We also want to tell you about the Long Beach of Tarragona, which, as you can imagine from the name, is a large beach. In fact, it is almost 3 kilometers long. The sand is fine and golden and its waters are shallow, making them ideal for children. On the other hand, it should be noted that the beach is surrounded by hundred-year-old trees that belong to the Punta de la Mora natural space.
How could it be otherwise, we also have to talk about Tamarit beach, which is located in the southern sector of Santa Pola. It has clean waters and fine golden sand. In addition, it offers all kinds of services and infrastructure, such as access for people with reduced mobility. The beach has adopted this name due to its proximity to the Tower of Tamarit .
Also on this list is the Miracle beach, which stretches for 500 meters and has an average width of 75 meters. Located very close to the Roman Amphitheater , the well-known Mediterranean Balcony and the port of Tarragona, it has a lot of services and facilities. Until recently the beach was quite degraded but, fortunately, it has been remodeled. Now, this beach of fine sand and transparent waters has a lot of terraces that connect the beach with the port.
Another beach that we want to show you is El Canyadell, a beautiful sandy area surrounded by the Roquer de Torredembarra. Located in a spectacular setting in Altafulla , the beach is characterized by its natural beauty and the tranquility that is breathed here. In addition, we must not forget that the last lighthouse built in Spain is very close.
Another of the best beaches in the province of Barcelona is Cala Fonda, also known as Waikiki . It is a beach with a naturist tradition located in a beautiful natural setting of golden sand, turquoise sea, pine trees and clay rocks. In addition, it must be taken into account that it is protected from the wind thanks to the cliffs.
Finally, we want to tell you about Playa del Torn, which is located in L’Hospitalet de L’Infant. Also a naturist tradition, it is quite far from the usual nudist beaches, which are usually small coves. And it is that, bounded by two rocky headlands, it extends over 1,500 meters. In addition, it has showers, lifeguards, parking, good accessibility and a snack bar. Its backdrop is surprising, formed by white pines that provide a beautiful wild appearance.
Do you miss a beach? Feel free to tell us! And the fact is that there are so many beautiful beaches in Tarragona that it is impossible for us to name them all.
