What to Do

One tourist destination worthy of a visit is the Natural Park of the Ebro Delta that is also in Catalonia.  In the Ebro Delta, visitors can enjoy biking, snorkeling, canoeing, sport fishing, diving, waterskiing and other sports activities.  Excursions such as safaris, visits to oyster and mussel farms, and boat trips may be arranged. With water temperatures finally warming up, now is a great time to enjoy all the water sports of the region. This is especially true thanks to water temperatures that have climbed to an average of 17°C (63°F).

In May, residents of Costa Dorada celebrate Labor Day or Dia del Treballadores in which they celebrate the economic and social achievement of the workers.  Tourists may look forward to seeing the Aplec de Sant Jeroni which is a dance performance reenacting the discovery of a sacred religious image.

Beaches

Those with families will want to visit Platja Llarga. As one of Salou, Costa Dorada’s main resorts, it is quiet and geared more for those who will be bringing small children than the 18-30 crowd. This beach is semi-urban and stretches far enough for their to be plenty of areas for everyone to have a piece of the sand all to themselves. Thanks to water temperature of 17°C (63°F), visitors can now enjoy all the region has to offer.

Restaurants and Nightlife

With the region being so close to Italy, it only stands to reason that visitors can find authentic Italian food in the heart of Spain. If Italian food is tickling the taste buds, then Spaghetti House is the place to go. The menu offers a wide array of salads as well as fresh made pastas. The pizza is also consistently rated as one of the best in the region. This is a great choice for a date night or for a family outing.

Some of the best burgers in Salou can be found at Uncle Sam’s. As the name might suggest, the menu is American with large portions for breakfast, lunch and dinner. In addition to burgers, the restaurant also serves up pizza and other American favorites such as nachos and wings. Be sure to come hungry when visiting Uncle Sam’s.

Those looking for something different at night must check out Jekyll and Hyde’s. This bar, restaurant and theater all in one will serve up unique characters as well as a show that won’t soon be forgotten. Be sure to enjoy a drink or two as well as some food while watching this unique extravaganza.
