La Pineda is on Spain's "Golden Coast" of Costa Dorada. It is known for its miles of golden sandy beaches and the Port Aventura Theme Park which really put this area on the tourist's map. During the day the beaches offer every type of entertainment and watersports, and after dark the lively nightlife begins. Nearby Salou caters to the teens and twenties whilst La Pineda is slightly quieter and more suited to families. Just inland are the mountains with tranquil walled Spanish towns, castles, monasteries, vineyards and olive groves which make an interesting day out.
The main resorts of Salou, La Pineda and Cambrils have some fine beaches with all the usual watersports available for hire. Pedaloes, windsurfing, jet skis, sunbeds and umbrellas are all readily available to make your day complete. Further along the coast are delightful quiet coves for a less crowded beach experience.Dining Out
