An abundance of safe and comfortable beaches

Without a doubt, the best thing about Cambrils is its beautiful 9km coastline. The Costa Dorada offers us metres and metres of clear blue water and golden sand. A large amount of the Cambrils beaches have the Blue Flag certification, what that means is that the beach is safe and child friendly. The sea is calm and shallow so the whole family can enjoy a wonderful day at the beach.

A popular option amongst families that visit Cambrils, is El Requeral Beach. The beach is centrally located and has all facilities; from toilets to showers. From this beach you can also access the promenade, which will lead you to more beaches such as La Llosa Beach, Vilafortuny Beach and Cap de Sant Pere Beach. You can surprise the children by taking them to Esquirol Beach which is located right next to a theme park which is another great option for a day out. Book a holiday home on the Costa Dorada to enjoy an unforgettable holiday with the whole family

Cambrils Beach

Explore the promenade 

Apart from sunbathing on the beaches there is a lot more to do in Cambrils. It is known for its pleasant promenade and is full of interesting things. It goes all the way to Salou and gives a great view of the Costa Dorada. Along the promenade there are many statues and monuments such as the Pino Redondo, an enormous tree that is centuries old. The Faro Rojo (the red lighthouse) is also well known in Cambrils and is located on the pier of the fishing port. 
 
During your stay in Cambrils, this promenade will definitely become one of your favourite spots. There is nothing better than feeling the sea breeze on your face, while you watch the sun set beyond the horizon. One recommendation for traveling with kids is to discover the promenade by bike, roller skates or Segway. There is a bike path which makes it easy and safe to move through the area. There are many restaurants, little shops and ice cream parlours parallel to the promenade. 
 
The promenade is also a popular location for events and festivals. For example, each year during summer the Cambrils Street Art festival takes place. There are musical and comedy performances as well as circuses. It feels like a real theatre, the only difference is that you are sat outside!

Theme parks

Only 15 kilometres away from Cambrils, you will find one of the best theme parks in Spain. It is called Port Aventura and is known for its amazing rollercoasters, wonderful spectacles and six themed zones. In Port Aventura you will find Polynesia, China and the Wild West all within reach. Meanwhile, you can enjoy the adrenaline rushing through your veins in one of the spectacular attractions.  

For the youngest family members, Port Aventura has created a special, Sesame Street themed zone where children can enjoy smaller rides and games. For car lovers, Ferrari Land is a new themed zone based on the world of Formula 1 and Ferrari. It doesn´t matter what you have planned for the rest of the holiday, a family holiday in Cambrils is not complete without visiting Port Aventura.  

An alternative way to spend a refreshing day with the family is at the Aquópolis water park. It is just 20 minutes away from Cambrils on the Costa Dorada. There are various pools, water slides and picnic zones where you can enjoy sun and shade. The paradise Aloha Beach simulates a tropical beach on Hawaii, fully decorated with palm trees, sun beds and parasols.

Sports and new activities with the family

Apart from relaxing under the sun, there is a lot more to do at the beach such as paddle surfing, kayaking, water skiing and even windsurfing. You can also go on a trip, on a banana boat or a regular boat. If you want to enjoy the clear water and the beautiful seabed, we can definitely recommend snorkelling in this area. 
 
The promenade lends itself for a bike tour on a sunny day. Discover almost 20 kilometres of beautiful views and monuments! In case you are less active, then a trip on the El Trenet mini train might be perfect for you. It is a local touristic train that offers various sightseeing routes around the area. One of the routes runs next to the promenade, another one through the old centre and another one runs past a market space, where a weekly market is held every Wednesday. On board the train you can enjoy the cool sea breeze and breathtaking views of the monument of the Sanctuary of Mare de Déu del Camí, that dates from the 18th century, as well as the medieval tower of Ermita which is also very special as it is home to the historical museum of Cambrils.
