Most of the coastal resorts have been awarded the European Blue Flag in recognition of the quality, facilities and environmental management of their beaches. All this, plus an exceptional climate, makes the Costa Daurada the ideal destination for unbeatable family holidays.

Golf devotees can practise their favourite sport at one of the four golf courses or three pitch & putts, all linked to an extensive network of quality hotel accommodation.

All this and more is guaranteed to make your stay in the Costa Daurada full of fun, excitement and adventure.
A Wealth of CultureThe world’s great ancient civilisations have left their mark on the Costa Daurada. In the year 2000, Tarragona’s Roman monuments were declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site, recognising it as the first Roman settlement on the Iberian Peninsula and the second most important city in the world in terms of Roman heritage. Reus stands out for its important Modernist architectural heritage that delights visitors with its beautiful stylised buildings from the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th centuries. The Gaudí Centre is a modern interactive interpretation centre where you can learn about the genius of the Modernist architect Antoni Gaudí. Another important part of our cultural heritage is the Cistercian monastery itinerary, which includes the monasteries of Santes Creus and Poblet, the latter of which was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1991.
Gastronomy, Wine and CountrysideThe Costa Daurada is a privileged land with imposing mountains in the Serra del Montsant Natural Park, Mediterranean ecosystem forests in the Prades Mountains and rivers, cultivated fields and vineyards. They all make up a natural landscape that will take your breath away.
The Costa Daurada’s cuisine is strongly influenced by the Mediterranean and you will be able to savour the fish and seafood and the traditional dishes cooked with typical Mediterranean ingredients, including olive oil, fruit, vegetables and nuts, perhaps prepared with an avant-garde touch in one of our prestigious restaurants. The quality of the Costa Daurada’s wines is guaranteed by five different designations of origin and a large part of the Cava Designation of Origin is included in our territory.
Terres de l’EbreThe Terres de l’Ebre is the ideal destination for getting away from crowds and built-up areas and immersing yourself in a wealth of natural, cultural and historical heritage. Those who long for nature in its purest state will find a paradise in the sandy beaches that stretch as far as the eye can see and the unspoilt landscapes of the Delta de l’Ebre and Els Ports Natural Parks, exceptional areas for birdwatching, fishing and hunting. If your interest lies in culture and historical heritage, you will be fascinated by the prehistoric cave paintings of Ulldecona (a UNESCO World Heritage Site), the ancient Iberian settlements and the castles built by the Moors and the Knights Templar.
