About Costa Dorada
You can travel on our direct flights to the Costa Dorada from nine different UK airports. These include international routes from Doncaster Sheffield, Aberdeen and London Luton Airport. The flight’s short, too. After just two hours in the air, you’ll land at Reus Airport. People often book holidays to the Costa Dorada to secure sunbathing time on its world-class beaches. The region turns out 92 kilometres of caramel-coloured sand along the coastline between Barcelona and Tarragona – no wonder it’s called the ‘Golden Coast’. You’ll find every set-up imaginable, from hidden coves and picturesque bays, to long swathes with watersports, restaurants and beachfront hotels. Look beyond the sands and you’ll find trendy harbour towns, like Cambrils. Lively tourist resorts are on the cards, too. Take Sitges, for example. Here, the buzzing nightlife offers plenty of reasons to party until the sun comes up. The Costa Dorada is also home to Spain’s biggest theme park, so you can take a break from the beach to ride PortAventura’s white-knuckle rollercoasters. History and culture aren’t in short supply, either. Take a daytrip to Barcelona, where the star billings go to Gaudi’s wacky architectural marvels, like the Sagrada Familia and Parc Güell. Or tour Tarragona, where you can explore Roman ruins, like the ancient amphitheatre. Alternatively, mosey over to Montserrat, with its mountain-top Benedictine Monastery. Be sure to keep tabs on our Flight Deals page so you don’t miss out on our cheap flights to the Costa Dorada.
