The Essential Must See List for Costa Dorada
Find a piece of Spanish heaven with a holiday to Costa Dorada. Translated to ‘Golden Coast’, this 92 km of gorgeous sand runs south of Barcelona along the Mediterranean Sea. With 300 days of sunshine a year, pretty countryside and vibrant resorts – it’s the ideal place to take a break. Let’s take a look at some of the things you should put on your itinerary on a Costa Dorada holiday with Falcon.
Exploration and Discovery
Step back in time with a visit to the Roman Amphitheatre, where you can walk around the well preserved, huge ruins like soldiers and gladiators did all those years ago. You can also head up into the hills to see the Monastery of Montserrat which was built over 1000 years ago. Miravet Castle is another great landmark to visit beside the Ebro River. This medieval piece of architecture is Arab in origin and houses the Chapel of Sant Miquel. Fans of art will also enjoy a wander around Gaudi Centre Reus – a tribute to the town’s most famous son. There’s a lot of history to uncover and the beautiful sights make it one history lesson that will catch your attention!
To pack some thrills into your holiday, there are a handful of exciting amusement parks and attractions to spend the day at. PortAventura is a theme park that boasts rides for all ages and has its own private beach – no wonder it attracts over three million visitors a year! It also has an Aquatic Park where you can lounge by the pool or get active on the slides with the kids. The House of Illusion is another must-do experience where guests are treated to magic, comedy and world-class illusions. There is plenty of audience participation and tickets are available with dinner included.
Costa Dorada is fast becoming a golfing hotspot and there are a number of courses to spend the day at. Lumine Mediterranean Beach and Golf Community are suave grounds with brilliant facilities. As well as the three courses (Lakes, Hills and Ruins) guests are treated to an infinity pool and restaurant. Golf Graiera is another top choice, as is Club de Golf Cota Dora.
