Cambrils is proud to have undergone tourism development while maintaining and preserving its privileged setting, combining natural resources with sustainable development. This village in the 60’s was only a small fishermen village with aproximatly 4,000 habitants. Then the arrival of the turturismo would change this town forever, and become one of the main tourist destinations in the region, and a benchmark for quality tourism.
In addition, it has positioned itself as a clearly family-friendly tourism are of the Costa Dorada with its sandy beaches, its extremely long Cambrils promenade, its famous cuisine and proximity to the already famous theme park PortAventura and waterparks Aquopolis and Costa Caribe as well as the wide range of apartments and villas for rent, making thousands of tourists each year choose this city to spend their holiday.
Cambrils offers a wide entertainment offer with a variety of both recreational and sporting activities. In the yacht club and the main beach of El Regueral, lovers of water sports can enjoy a wide variety of sea sports, either on excursions with jet skis, parasailings, rent sailboats and fishing boats; there are options for every taste. In Playa de Vilafortuny, or Playa del Dorado is a slightly more relaxed breathing air space, but also has all the necessary facilities for a great beach day, eating at their beach bars, or doing some fun activities.
If you are not staying in the town, you should know that Cambrils is really worth a visit. Whether to enjoy a good meal in the many restaurants available in the area or to wander and get lost in its streets in a shopping afternoon.
Walk through the 9km of beaches in Cambrils
Along its coastline, you can enjoy its nine kilometers of beaches and a fantastic promenade along the area, where we can find a wide bike lane along the coast from the beginning of the town of Cambrils in the south, to the nearby Salou. We are talking about beaches for all tastes, of which many hold the blue flag of the EU, easily accessible and featuring several amenities like restaurants, showers or chairs for relax and just enjoy the sun and sea.
Cambrils, fishing and gastronomy
To understand and appreciate the relationship that this small town has with the sea, it is worth a visit to the fish market. From four p.m. fishing vessels are coming into ports loaded with fishes; that is the moment when visitors can enjoy watching them unloading their catch and taking it to the market to proceed with the daily fish auction. Fishes that will subsequently be eaten in its dozens of restaurants, made a thousand different ways, from simple grilled fish or fried to elaborate on “suquet” or other delicious sauces, always with a twist that has made Cambrils the culinary capital of the Costa Dorada .
The short distance to other towns of great cultural interest such as the modernism of Reus, Roman Tarragona, the Cistercian route, Salou, the modernist, Parque Samà or, and the Priorat where we can do the wine route, all of them make this area an ideal place for a holiday.
