30 km south of Tarragona, bathed by Mediterranean waters, is one of the most beautiful coastal municipalities of Catalonia. Cambrils is a quiet and friendly municipality that has gradually become one of the most important tourist destinations in the region.
The port, overlooked by the defense tower and Monumento de las Serenas, is the epicenter of the municipality. In Cambrils, a charming place full of life with restaurants, stores, ice cream parlors and night markets you can still breathe the essence of the seafaring villages of yesteryear.
The ideal thing to start taking the pulse of the municipality is to walk the port, stroll along the marina looking at the large yachts that tie there, until you reach the area of the fishing boats and the red lighthouse where you will enjoy one of the best panoramic views of Cambrils.
Very close, you will find the Parc del Pescador, a lovely garden with large trees, children's areas, fountains and restaurants; an ideal spot to visit with children.
One of the essential tourist areas is the old town, a charming and unknown place that we can reach by taking a ride on the tourist train that will delight your children. The old town or "la villa" is formed by a labyrinth of narrow cobbled streets full of plants hanging from the balconies and leading directly to the old city walls.
It has a population of about 35.000 inhabitants, but in summer that sum triples with the thousands of tourists who come to enjoy the more than 10 km of fine sandy beaches, a very wide offer of leisure and a very rich and varied gastronomy.
Cambrils has more than 10 km of fine, sandy and endless beaches of great quality, some of them awarded with the Blue Flag by the European Community. Here you will find beaches for all tastes, always accompanied by the long promenade that borders them until reaching the neighboring town of Salou. Here is a summary of our favorite beaches in Cambrils:
Regueral: Regueral is the urban beach of the municipality and the most extensive sandbank of Cambrils. Its location in the center of the town, and the great amount of services and activities that it offers, makes it one of the most appreciated beaches by tourists and local people. It features over 1,200 m of fine sand, beach bars, restaurants, rental service of sun loungers and parasols and is water sports friendly.
Esquirol: this beach is located about 800 m north of Regueral. It is a beautiful sandbank 1000 length where there are schools of sailing, chinguitos, rental service of loungers, parasols and good facilities.
El Dorado: Located about 2 km south of the port, we find this great sand bank where you can breathe peace and tranquility. El Dorado is undoubtedly one of the best beaches in Cambrils. There are no crowds here, no queues or anything like that, just a beautiful and quiet beach away from the center, protected by jetties and offering very good facilities.
Playa de la Llosa: this beach is a beautiful fine sand beach located 300 m south of the port with very good services. It has a good restaurant called El Marino where they serve delicious typical dishes and at night it transforms into a fantastic chill out bar.
Vilafortuny: a long beach between Cambrils and Salou at the foot of a large pine forest. Along the beach of Vilafortuny you will find several chiringuitos, playgrounds for children, first aid stations, rental service of sun loungers and parasols, as well as showers. A nice beach to escape the hustle and bustle of downtown.
