Travel Guide
Cambrils

A popular beach vacation destination, this small town on the Costa Dorada also has a rich Roman and medieval heritage.

Crowned by golden beaches and lapped by the warm, calm waters of the Mediterranean, Cambrils is a lovely spot for a leisurely vacation. Its many cafés and restaurants are filled with Catalonian charm, both unique and approachable. Frolic at its beaches and parks and tour its many museums.

No vacation in the region is complete without a visit to Cambrils Beach. Arrive early before the crowds to sunbathe on the golden sand. Sip sangria and look out to sea. Watch for fishing boats bringing their catch back into the Port of Cambrils, the place to get the freshest fish.

Take refuge from the sun in one of Cambrils’ parks. Attend a concert or relax beneath the eucalypti of the Parc del Pescador, named for Cambrils’ fishermen, across the street from the beach. Let your children play on the equipment of Pinaret Park. Drive to PortAventura World in nearby Salou for full days of theme park fun on thrill rides and water attractions.

Take a break from the sun and nature in Cambrils’ many museums. Walk among the ruins of La Llosa Roman Villa, whose olive grove was planted by its 1st-century Roman inhabitants. Visit the History Museum of Cambrils Mill of Three Eras, where bronze finds recovered from La Llosa sit alongside Neolithic artifacts depicting the long history of Cambrils and its region.

Drive to Cambrils in 20 minutes from the closest airport in Reus, which offers connections to other European countries. The closest large airport is in Barcelona, which is a 90-minute drive or train ride away. The train station in Cambrils offers connections throughout the region, though renting a car can be useful to explore the surrounding countryside and reach some attractions. The Costa Dorada is known for its excellent weather year round. Its brilliant sunshine can sometimes be punishing, so bring plenty of sun protection.

Complete your visit to Cambrils at the Parc Samà, an unusual romantic garden inspired by the rhythms and styles of the Caribbean.

"Lovely hotel to stay and enjoy cambrils. Staff very pleasant and plenty of facilities. Hotel parking is underground, limited and very very tight. Local parking is time limited. Probably not the best place to have a car. Other than that, very close to restaurants and beach. Recommended."
