Salou has been a reference point in the tourism market since the 1960s and is currently one of the top quality holiday resorts on the Mediterranean. This quality is guaranteed by various quality certificates.
Its main attractions are the sun and the beach – nine golden-sand beaches, tranquil waters and a mild all-year-round climate.
The town’s geographical location, at the heart of the Costa Daurada, is perfect for a holiday resort. It is 103 km from Barcelona, 12 km from the provincial capital of Tarragona, and 9 km from Reus airport, making it easy for visitors to reach.
Salou has one of the longest holiday seasons among the Catalan resorts, starting in March and continuing through to November. In this respect, the longer opening period of PortAventura Resort has been a great help in prolonging the season.
The municipality is clearly committed to the quality of its services and applies quality control systems aimed at improving its tourism facilities, as well as the future of the town as a whole.
