Sun, Sea & Sangria in Salou!

Holaaaaaaa 😜

After the buzz of Barcelona it was high time that I found myself a beach. 1st to chill, then to indulge in some crazy watersport activities. Give me a jet ski & I’m in my element. So there I was stepping off the train in Tarragona. I wandered around, checking Tarragona out for a bit. But decided to jump in a taxi & head to Tarragona’s, Cap de Salou.

Salou is a resort town along Spain’s NorthEastern Costa Daurada in the Tarragona Province. With beaches ranging from small coves to busy main strips. Popular for all kinds of water sports, sunset views & fantastic coastal paths.

With 4 separate beaches all in close proximity of each other, & some little coves all on a long stretch of coast with a few twists & turns, this sounded like the place for me. In the area I was, you had 3 beaches that had great watersport activities on offer.

Platges del Minicipi de Salou.

1st you have Platja de Llevant,

3rd is Platja de Llarga,

Thats the main 3 beaches where I spent most of my time for 7 days. The other beach is Platja de Llenguadet,

There’s also some great spots to chill & catch some rays for the day dotted all around the area.

With some nice places to dine & have a nice cool drink as you take in the beauty of the beach,

Most of my nights where by the beach in a bar drinking San Miguel or some crazy looking cocktail & I’d spend a day at one beach, a day at the other & would basically flit all over on a jetski, banana boat, surf-board or in the clouds on a glider parachute, connected to a speed boat. I was living the dream my friends, living the dream!

Obviously its a resort area, so the architecture is all the same. If you’ve seen one, then you’ve seen them all. Here’s one,

Now you’ve seen them all 😜

Salou has everything you want & expect from a resort & is a great part of Spain to visit.

But I was there for the watersports & beach life so here’s a few more pics.

Tarragona’s Salou was sweet & I had a fantastic time. Getting my fill of all the great watersports & superb beach life, but after 7 days it was time to move on & complete the final part of my journey in Spain. So I booked a bus to my next destination.

Join me next time when I step off that bus for 2 days in the magnificent city, that is Valencia!

Thanks for reading &……..

Take care Travellers. Viva Espana! 😜
