The Costa Dorada (Golden Coast) is the Mediterranean coast in Tarragona province, stretching from the north to the Ebro delta. Due to its proximity to Barcelona, it is one of tourist destinations in Spain that attracts more foreign tourists, mainly because its beaches are very attractive and it offers a variety of entertainment options.

One of the biggest attractions of the Costa Dorada is Salou, a small town of just 30,000 inhabitants, but effervescent in the summer with the arrival of thousands of tourists, mostly young, eager to have fun and enjoy the Spanish party. It is possible to go to Salou from Barcelona by train. The journey lasts about an hour and a half.

In addition to some beautiful beaches and fabulous nightlife in Salou, you can also find the famous Port Aventura theme park in the surroundings, which receives thousands of visitors each year. The park will be closed from Sunday, January 9, 2011 until March 26, 2011, when the new season begins. You can reach the park from Barcelona as the park has its own train station. The trip from Barcelona takes about an hour and a half. The park is famous for its star attraction, the Dragon Khan impressive roller coaster.

A very good choice for visiting the Costa Dorada is that you rent one of the apartments in Barcelona and train travel. Do not miss the opportunity to visit Tarragona, a city world heritage site by UNESCO because of its Roman architecture. Among the tourist attractions to visit in Tarragona is the Romanesque-Gothic Cathedral, the Roman wall, the amphitheater and the circus of Tarraco, both Roman ruins, as Tarragona was once the capital of the Roman province of Hispania.

Another attraction of the area is the Ebro Delta, which is the second largest wetland in the Mediterranean. To visit the delta you can go by ferry, rent a bike, take a boat trip or join an organized tour. It is even possible to visit the Parc Deltaventur is an adventure playground where you can do adventure sports.

    Si te refieres a la temporada de verano, lo mejor es venir en junio, que ya hace buen tiempo pero no hay mucha gente! La temporada oficialmente comienza a partir de mediados de junio, después de la fiesta de San Juan.
