It's nothing for people, who need discos or full-service-hotels with animation for the kids. Just relax and enjoy!

Altafulla

Altafulla is a charming fishing town situated on the Costa Dorada in the Tarragona province of Catalonia, Spain. Although a small resort, Altafulla is becoming increasingly popular and offers a wide range of leisure attraction for the holidaymaker.

Situated on the banks of the River Gaia, the town dates back to the Roman era and is particularly attractive with ancient buildings lining the narrow streets.

About town
Altafulla is full of traditional charm; the small seaside town dates back to the Roman occupation and has many ancient buildings. It has its own castle, Altafulla Castle, and other historic monuments worth visiting.

The town offers a good selection of amenities and services: shops, bars, restaurants, medical centre and post office, are all available.

Beaches

The beach at Altafulla is a lovely, golden stretch of sand, with restaurant, shower and water sport facilities. The beach has been awarded the European Blue Flag for cleanliness.

Places to visit
The region of Tarragona with its Roman influence is home to a number of archaeological sites, including Villa El Munts, which is located at Altafulla. The site is the most important archaeological Roman site in Catalonia and is definitely worth a visit.

The city of Tarragona, capital of the province, is just 11 kilometres away, and an outstanding example of a Roman Town in the region.

The theme park Port Aventura is a great day out for the children and the nearby seaside resorts of Salou and La Pineda are also recommended visits.

Eating out

Altafulla has a good selection of traditional and seafood restaurants, as well as international choices. For a wider selection of eateries than a trip to Tarragona City is recommended.

Climate
Altafulla enjoys mild winters with some rainfall, warm blossom filled springs long hot summers and autumns of golden sunlight and rich sweet plums.

Altafulla review

We came before the holiday season got underway so many shops & businesses were closed. From previous vacations here I know it is more lively in July/August.

Altafulla review

Altafulla is perfect, if you want to experience an original spanish coast village. Almost only spanish tourist. There are small (and expensive) supermarkets by the sea, but just in the outside of the village (30 minutes walk from the beach)you will find a big supermarket (eronski).


Costa Dorada reviews

The beach is cleaned every night. It's not crowded (we went first week of July). The sand is ok, not as fine as you find on the beaches nearer Tarragona, but this is because the beach was made larger some years ago.

Altafulla review

Beautiful and very atmospheric


Costa Dorada reviews

The Costa Dorada has a very mild climate, the temperatures in summer rarely vary from around 28-29-30 C, with excellent sandy beaches and plenty of other attractions (cities, history, culture, outdoor)
