Area guide to Tarragona – Costa Dorada
Tarragona province is part of Catalonia and the Costa Dorada is one of the most popular parts of the region due to its golden beaches, clear waters and historical towns. The nearest international airports are Reus and Barcelona.
The province’s capital, Tarragona, is about 60km southwest of Barcelona. Although it is a relatively small city, it is packed with history and has a port. The Roman influence is still clearly visible in places like the Les Ferreres aqueduct and the Roman amphitheatre that faces the Mediterranean and the walled Old Town retains its medieval character.
The Costa Dorada beaches include a number of Blue Flag winners, such as Playa La Mora, Playa La Pineda, Playa La Savinosa, Coma-Ruga Playa, Playa Cunit, and Playa Frances El Vendrell. Tarragona is also home to Spain’s largest theme park, Port Aventura and there are a number of water parks and a zoo for family entertainment.
Golf in Tarragona
The Bonmont Club in Tarragona was designed by the famous Robert Trent Jones and there are six other courses in the province, all offering a high standard of golf.
A number of international schools catering for all ages are available in Tarragona, including the British School of Tarragona, Jigsaw British School and the EIC in Salou for older students.
