Discover Cambrils in Costa Dorada

A little further south along the Costa Dorada from Salou, is the holiday town of Cambrils. It is apparent that, although Cambrils welcomes visitors and provides for them, it has never lost its original character as a fishing town. this is also a reason why Costa Dorada hotels and Costa Dorada apartments are still an insider’s tip.

Like all resorts on this stretch of Spanish coastline, Cambrils offers loads of glorious beaches. The sand is golden, the sea is warm and shallow; it is quite safe for youngsters of all abilities.

The sea also provides a major venue for water sports, which are very well catered for here. Visitors can try windsurfing, jet skis, sailing, diving, pedallos or hire a boat and sail along the coast. Sailing and windsurfing are particularly good as the wind is very favourable.

Off the beach, there are an equal number of facilities to be active. There are three excellent golf courses within easy reach, plus a municipal pitch and putt for all to enjoy. The local sports centres provide activities for youngsters in and out of the swimming pools.

To go further a field, hire a horse and go trekking in the nearby countryside. Or ride a bicycle and explore the delta of the river Ebro, with its unusual wildlife and rare plants.

For those who enjoy exploring on foot, the town of Cambrils is a must. The winding, narrow streets, flanked by traditional buildings with flower decorated balconies, are a joy. There are many original old buildings and a good enough selection of churches, castles, monuments, municipal buildings and towers to satisfy anyone.

Cambrils’ real claim to fame on the Costa Dorada, however, is its cuisine. It is regarded as the gastronomic capital of the coast. As well as serving many traditional Catalan dishes, there is a custom of modern and original cooking, but still based on the excellent local produce.

Fish and seafood play a major part in the cuisine of the town, as they are landed daily at the fish quay and sent straight to the restaurants from the fish markets. These are matched by the superb olive oil produced in the region, which is some of the best in Spain.

For those whose holiday is incomplete without shopping, Cambrils offers a wide variety of outlets. Based mainly in the old town and the port quarter, there is large selection of boutiques, tourist souvenir shops, local crafts and shops for everyday needs. To complete the shopping, one must wander round the two street markets, held each week in the port and the old town. Buy locally produced items to eat back at home and remind oneself of Cambrils.
