Costa Dorada

The colour of gold – soft, warm and sparklingly bright – is prevalent along the shores of the southern part of Catalonia. This beautiful part of the province has rightly been given the name Costa Dorada which means Golden Coast. Undoubtedly another favourite Spanish holiday destination, the Costa Dorada lies beneath Barcelona, and stretches from the south of the Costa Brava to Tarragona. The region is quite different from its northern neighbour, the Costa Brava . The coastline is less rugged, with endless miles of flat golden sandy beaches.

It covers a marine littoral of 216 kilometers long, with 786 hectares of expansive beaches with immaculately clean and fine sand, and crystalline, shallow water. A handful of the towns here are established around the silhouette of an old castle. Their propinquity to each other balances the ambience, of old and modern, natural and artificial. Each unique town lends a lively feel to the entire surrounding, and increasing the possibilities of enjoyment are of course, the availability of all sorts of complimentary services for tourists.

The picturesque coast of Dorada is brimming with terrific beaches, charming, manicured villages and intriguing history and culture. Here you can enjoy an exciting nightlife, panoramic views, secluded hideaways and simply the best of nature.
