 A few weeks ago I went on a trip to Costa Dorada in Spain to get a feel of the region and it was definitely an unexpected surprise!.

With so much to do and see I’ve rounded up my five favourite things to see in the area that are great for solo trips and also perfect for the family.

If you have followed me for a while then you will know I am such a beach lover. My most happy place anywhere is the beach. We use to live in Norfolk and I really do miss living 5 footsteps from the beach so when I went in the town Cambrils I was honestly mesmerised.

It’s a beautiful place with an amazing harbour.The town is known for its fishing and the coastline consists of 9 beaches!, yes 9. 

I had a lovely long walk and really soaked in all up, it’s so pretty and perfect for family picnics. You could spend a whole day on the beaches here, pack your lunch and some buckets and spades, a great family day out.

perfect for a family holiday :)

A night in Salou with the amazing cybernetic water fountain light show was incredible. It’s on every evening in the summer and it really is something not to miss.

The illuminated fountain show consists of laser lights and music to make the water dancing experience. The orchestra is a variety of music including Beethoven and jazz.

Grab some snacks and a good spot as it does get crowded :)

One thing I went to see whilst being there was the Human Towers in Reus, now, i will be completely honest, I hadn’t got a clue what I was expecting, but wow!.

It is literally a tower of humans :). The origins of the tradition from Catalan of building human towers dates back to the 18th century.

Teams compete in this sporting event to build the tallest,most complex tower against each other. The better the tower, the more points that team gets.

It’s so nerve wrecking to watch but so fascinating, and children as little as 5 compete too!.

Paddle boarding with Nàutic Parc Costa Dorada was incredible, it was the first time I had ever done it.

 We came across some of the caves and the stories behind them were really interesting.

We paddled inside and was told that they were the caves for pirates, and they would hid their treasure in them and hope not to be found, the girls would love to go exploring in them for buried treasure :)

Siurana is known for it’s beautiful little town and sunset. We actually raced up to the top of the hills to catch it and it was absolutely incredible. 

So peaceful and something that I’d never seen before , it was such a special end to our adventure in Costa Dorada.

I’d love to know if you’ve visited Costa Dorada before and if there is anything I need to see on my next trip there :)
