In English, Costa Daurada means ‘Golden Coast’ and it’s easy to see why it has earned this name. Over 55 miles of glorious sandy beaches run along the coast of this area. Salou, PortAventura and Tarragona are the most popular Costa Daurada destinations, and with so much to offer you can see why.
PortAventura is southern Europe’s biggest theme park. Ever year it attracts an astounding 4 million eager visitors who can’t wait to see what it has to offer. Located just outside Salou, it makes the perfect exciting get away from the relaxation of the sun, sea and sand. It consists of six different areas including the Far West and China. Each area homes rollercoasters and rides in keeping with the theme of the area.
Dragon Khan, a favourite among many, with its 8 inversions is a stone throws away from Shambala, Europe’s fastest rollercoaster. These very popular rides can be found in China. If twists and turns aren’t your thing, there are numerous stage shows including Templo del Fuego, a high-quality Indiana Jones-esque show where you’re lucky to get out alive.
Away from the high intensity rides is SesamoAventura, a Sesame Street area aimed at the younger audience. It has 11 rides making it the ideal area for families with younger children. And who knows, Ernie, Bert and Elmo may make a special appearance just to see you! PortAventura really is the theme park for all ages. It covers each aspect needed for a great day out with plenty to keep you busy and plenty of restaurants to stop you from going hungry.
