Seek Spanish Gold from Salou Holiday Rentals

The Gold Coast, aka Costa Dorada, is a strip of coastline in Spain’s Catalonia region. One of the treasures of this area is Salou, a much lauded holiday destination and long time favourite with British tourists. Accordingly, there are plenty of Salou holiday rentals allowing visitors to take great advantage of the beautiful sandy beaches and the rich infrastructure that supports great sunshine holidays. Salou is not overly authentic or very traditional – people choose holiday accommodation in Salou for a jolly good time.

Salou = sun, sea and sand

The beaches in and around Salou are a magnet for families and youthful parties, but as well as long days on the sands, it is impossible to resist the thrill of Port Aventura, one of Europe’s largest theme parks. If you look out of the window of your Salou holiday accommodation, it is very likely you will be able to see the park’s main attraction, the Dragon Khan Rollercoaster complete with its 8 loops. With a mass of rides and loads of themed areas, people do tend to find they probably spend more time in Port Aventura than they imagine. Adding to the fun factor, Aquopolis Water Park is also not far from Salou holiday apartments. Kids will also enjoy Universal’s Mediterranea theme park as well as the many Kids Zones around the town.

If you can tear yourself away from the theme parks, there are plenty of other activities to try. Those who love to be outdoors can enjoy the whole range of watersports from the beaches or can opt for tennis, squash, golf and horse-riding. The scenery of Catalonia is stunning so if you do want to get a touch of authentic Spain from your Salou holiday accommodation, head out of town into the countryside for walks and cycle rides among vineyards and citrus and olive groves, keeping an eye out for medieval ruins that pepper the trails.

Night time in Salou equals party time. There is a huge number of bars, pubs and night clubs and there is always a festive atmosphere. If you prefer things a little more sedate, there are plenty of good international restaurants where you can enjoy a fine meal and relaxing drink.

Cultural Offerings

Whilst Salou presents little in the way of cultural heritage, if you need your fix, fabulous Barcelona is just a short drive up the coast. Visit to admire the magical Gaudi architecture, shop in its markets and boutiques and view its museums and galleries. Figueras, a charming town on the French/Spanish border is another good day trip from Salou holiday apartments, especially for art lovers, as this is the home of the Salvador Dali Museum.

Salou’s sunshine quota

Salou’s summers are the perfect example of Mediterranean special. Summers are hot with regular temperatures of 30 degrees and an average of 25. Winters are mild enough to consider taking Salou holiday rentals. Choose a lovely villa with private pool so you can enjoy the sunshine on the beaches but swim in a warmer environment.

Getting to Salou

With no direct flights into Spain, you’ll need to make your way to the UK first, but then you will be spoilt for choice of flights to get you to your Salou holiday accommodation. Reus airport is nearest to Salou and there are cheap flights from plenty of the UK’s airports.
