Discover Tarragona Holidays
The beautiful Catalonian port city of Tarragona lies on the north-eastern coast of Spain and is the perfect destination if you love combining relaxing beach time with exploring a city rich in culture, history and nightlife. We can’t all lie on the beach all day, right? Tarragona’s warm weather is reflected in the warm colours of the city, with stunning medieval walls, bleached by the sun, winding their way around the historic Old Town. Within these walls, you’ll find you can lose yourself in a jumble of narrow streets, Roman ruins, and intimate bars and restaurants.
Down by the waves of the Mediterranean, Tarragona’s beaches are some of the best on the Costa Dorada. Known for their soft, golden sands, this stretch of coastline translates as the ‘Golden Coast’ and you’ll find beautiful Blue Flag beaches stretching for miles and miles. The sheltered waters are great for families and you can enjoy all the watersports and beachside restaurants you could dream of on your beach holiday.
Top Attractions for Holidays to Tarragona
With its fantastic seafront location, some of Tarragona’s top attractions are, of course, its beaches. Salou is popular with sunbathers who are looking for a fun and lively atmosphere, while Cambrils is a lovely, safe spot for little ones, with a calm waves and gently sloping sands. Couples will love the secluded beauty of Playa La Savinosa – it’s a popular place to get an all-over tan!
The coastline surrounding Tarragona is stunning – but the city itself is equally so, with plenty ancient historical sites and buildings to inspire you. From the medieval walls, to the Roman amphitheatre and the imposing grandeur of the Cathedral de Saint Mary, Tarragona is packed with sightseeing options. Enjoy some cool away from the Spanish sunshine with a visit to the Archaeological Museum, take in some modern art at the Museu D’Art Modern de Tarragona gallery, or travel just outside of the city to the impressive arches of the Roman Aqueduct.
For something a bit different, take a stroll along the lovely tree-lined modern shopping street, La Rambla Nova, to see the Monumento a los Castellers – a towering sculpture of an important local tradition, where the young people of a town form a death-defying human tower.
