Tourism in Salou
Salou, found in Tarragona on Costa Dorada, is a beautiful city dedicated to tourism. Oriented primarily towards families, it is a good option for vacationing: and it recently became more popular thanks to the construction of the Universal Studios Park in Port Aventura, a magnet of leisure tourism.
The region of Salou contains eight beaches and various coves, some of which were awarded EUs Blue Flag. The city's beach culture gained popularity in 1863 when the first beach houses were installed on the popular Ponent coast. Possibly one of the most visited is the beach of Llevant, which can found next to the Nautical Club of Salou, close to the center of the city.
The city contains many attractions, which you can get to know with the help of the little trains that the community makes available for visitors to get to know the municipality in a different manner. There are also many excursions to be made into the city's surroundings. Try to visit the weekly artisan's markets or shop in one of the many malls. The soft climate of the city invites for a stroll along the the well-known seaside path of Jaume I, or if you prefer a more cultural visit you should not miss the offerings of Torre Vella: this ancient fortification from 1530 has been remodeled into an important cultural center.
As far as nightlife goes, this is one of Salou's principal attractions: the city is famous for it, containing numerous pubs and discos that draw out all the night-owls. But there are also numerous ice-cream shops and cafés that stay open until late. If you enter the city on Murillo, Carles Buigas or an adjacent street, you will find yourself in the area known as slammers where you will find the majority of music bars, and discos that attract the younger tourist crowd.
