La Pineda

La Pineda

La Pineda is a relaxed, modern resort nestled between the pretty city of Tarragona to the north and the lively town of Salou to the south. Undoubtedly, La Pineda's main attraction is its large, sandy beach which makes it particularly popular with families. It has a waterfront promenade which stretches the length of the beach, a strip of bars and pubs and even boasts its own waterpark, the fun filled Aquopolis. For further thrills and spills why not spend a day at the Costa Dorada's famous theme park, Universal's Port Aventura?


La Pineda Introduction

La Pineda is perfectly placed if you want to get and about. The resort enjoys a close proximity to Universal's Port Aventura where you can take a ride one of Europe's largest white knuckle roller coasters, the Dragon Khan...if you dare! Port Aventura is divided up into themed sections which explore different parts of the world including the Wild West and Aztec Mexico. Throughout the day Port Aventura stages lively cabaret shows and colourful street parades as well as spectacular firework displays. Recently Universal have opened up a waterpark with an assortment of wet rides called Costa Caribe, right next door to Port Aventura. Both parks make for great days out.


La Pineda Beaches

Backed by a decked promenade, La Pineda offers a long, wide stretch of sandy beach which shelves gently into the sea, making it an ideal choice for families. There are also dozens of small rocky isolated coves along the coastal road between Salou and La Pineda. The resort also enjoys a wide range of watersports during high season.


La Pineda Shopping

There are a limited number of shops in the resort centre, including souvenir stalls and supermarkets, which sell holiday essentials. The nearby city of Tarragona is a short bus journey from La Pineda and boasts a pretty main shopping street, La Rambla Nova, which is dotted with exclusive Spanish boutiques. On the outskirts of Tarragona there is a large shopping mall which houses everything from clothes shops to electrical stores under one roof.


La Pineda Nightlife

After a day on the beach, there's plenty to do in La Pineda once the sun goes down. During high season, the resort's celebrated 'strip' comes to life and boasts an array of vibrant salsa and disco bars. Towards the outskirts of the town there is a large nightclub where both holidaymakers and locals dance the night away. Close by, the resort of Salou offers a multitude of pubs and discos which stay open until the early hours of the morning while the nearby city of Tarragona is home to a cluster of bars and clubs around the port area which have a distinct Latin flavour about them.


La Pineda cafes and restaurants

La Pineda has a few cafes and restaurants most of which are located around the resort centre, set back from the beach promenade. Whether its hearty British fare, fast food or traditional Spanish dishes that you're after, there's something to suit everyone's tastes. Cambrils, only a few kilometres south, is well known for its fishing harbour and so speciality seafood dishes such as paella and fideua feature on many menus.
