Cap Salou is ideal for those who like their holidays peaceful and with a healthy dose of Catalonian culture. Tucked away on Spain’s north-eastern coast, Cap Salou is a sleepy resort, just a ten-minute drive from its noisier namesake Salou; perfect for those who want upbeat nightlife and low-tempo days. The beaches tend to be more secluded that those in the livelier resorts, offering private little coves, with shallow shores and golden sands. Perfect for families with younger children and couples looking to enjoy some quiet, quality downtime together, Cap Salou holidays are a little slice of paradise.
Things to do
If you can bear to tear yourself away from the beach or the hotel pool, you’ll find there are plenty of things to see and do on your holidays to Cap Salou. A low-key resort, there’s only a handful of restaurants and bars in town. If you want it livelier, hop on a bus for Salou. Families can take advantage of one of Europe’s biggest and best theme parks in nearby Portaventura, while couples might prefer to wander the cobbled streets and winding back alleys of Salou’s old town.
To make the most of the summer sun, book your holidays to Cap Salou in July, when the temperature hovers around the mid-to-high twenties. For cooler conditions, book your break in the late spring or early autumn.
Flights land at Reus Airport, which is roughly 14.5km north of the resort.
