And when the vitamin D binge stops, the night gets started. Stumble your way from beach bars onto the Jaume promenade to sample the town’s buzzing nightlife and strut your stuff up and down Salou’s terracotta cobbles to really live la vida loca.
And when you want to work off that sore head in the morning, fling yourself onto a windsurf or delve into the deeps to see the vibrant sea life this coast boasts. For an action-packed getaway, family-friendly escape, and everything in between, Salou is a mainline to the good life.
