SALOU, COSTA DAURADA, SPAIN.

Lovely seaside resort.

Over the past 20 years , i've stayed in Salou 8 times. Salou is in Spain , in Costa Daurada,Catalonia, on the Mediterranean
Sea. It is 10km from Tarragona, and 112km from Barcelona [69 miles]. There are lovely sandy beaches ,a great promenade, fountains, theme park, bars and restaurants galore. I have always travelled to Salou by train. Salou rail station closed on 13th Jan 2020, when a new line opened .that bypassed the resort of Salou. Now the nearest station is Port-Aventura . I believe shuttle buses run to
Salou. Train company is RENFE. Long distance buses use the Bus station halfway along the Promenade, Jaume 1. Flying is to Barcelona or Reus airports. Local bus company is Plana, routes to Cambrils, La Pineda, Reus and Tarragona.---- There is a Marina, at end of the Promenade, along the Prom are Fountains. At the other end of the Prom is Cape Salou, the hilly area with Hotels. Here is Smugglers Inn , a favourite Restaurant in Carrer de la Font.--My favourite bar in town is ,The Parrot in Carrer de Bilbao.---After a walk along the Promenade, i would return by local bus or Tourist Toy Train. [Summer].. There is hectic nightlife in August.-----------My first choice of picking a holiday is for Historic architecture, and scenery, Salou doesn't come into that, but is perfect to relax and enjoy. I've travelled to Salou on my own, with a friend , and twice to join friends as part of their holiday. It is situated near enough to other places of interest, to stay for a couple of nights.
