Camping Holidays in Costa Dorada, Spain
An introduction to the Costa Dorada
It goes without saying that camping holidays in the Costa Dorada are most loved for the wonderful sandy beaches that stretch for over 200 kilometres from the south of Barcelona. It'll come as no surprise that the name Costa Dorada means the 'golden coast'. The safe, shallow waters and miles of sand found close to our three Costa Dorada holiday parks are the perfect playground for children.
Sunshine and beaches aside, there's plenty to keep you busy on a holiday to the Costa Dorada. Head to the Catalan capital, Barcelona, for the day. Take a shopping trip to the seriously chic seaside town of Sitges. Or maybe take the train to Montserrat. Of course, no description of the Costa Dorada would be complete without mentioning its star attraction - PortAventura - all loop-the-loop rollercoasters and splash-tastic log flumes. One thing's for sure, the Costa Dorada, is perfect for a fun-packed family camping holiday.
You'll find Al Fresco mobile homes at three all-action holiday parks on the Costa Dorada: Vilanova Park in Vilanova i la Geltru, Sanguli in Salou and Cambrils Park.
What to eat and drink in the Costa Dorada
From chorizo to chips - and everything in between - the choice on the Costa Dorada is infinite. Take the holiday hotspot of Salou for example, while it has a good clutch of tapas bars and authentic Spanish restaurants, it's geared up to for international palettes.
For something a little more traditional, Cambrils is the place to head. It's still a working fishing port and a lot of this straight-from-the-net fish ends up in the local restaurants baked in salt, lightly grilled or transformed into lip-smacking specialities like 'suquet', a Catalan fish stew.
As an accompaniment try Rioja Crianza reds or vino tinto as the Spaniards would say, rose and reds from Penedes, Sangre de Toro red, and Cava for a light and fruity fizz.
