Top 10 Things to do in Cambrils, Spain

December 27, 2017 Jeremy Dunfee

Cambrils has a well-deserved reputation as the culinary capital of the Costa Dorada. There is a veritable cornucopia of fresh local ingredients, ranging from fish and other seafood to the internationally acclaimed DO Siurana olive oil. Between the historic population center and the ports, life in Cambrils unfurls peacefully around beaches and promenades. Looking on as fishing boats glide into the harbor and discovering the Old Quarter are two of the many pleasures that await in this Catalan town.

Cambrils Beach Platja Prat d'En Fores y Regueral

Reviewed By yesman_10 - east midlands

We used the beach on the last 3 days of our holiday, it's cleaned every morning, we also saw litter pickers on there on one day. Sunbeds to hire for €4.5 per bed, €6 for a shade, per day, the guy controlling the sunbeds speaks great English, and you get a receipt for your payment, it lasts until 18.00 hrs. The beach is very flat, the sea easily accessable, and there's also a nice beach bar, called the Denver Bar, right on the beach, for drinks and snacks. Lifeguards patrol the beach at all times during the day, also first aid huts are at the back of the beach. There are also showers, and wooden slatted walkways that lead you on to the beach, helpful with kids buggies etc.

PortAventura World

Reviewed By Sam B

I absolutely loved this park, the staff were lovely, the rides were incredible and the atmosphere was great!
Let’s start with the theme park aspect of it, the rides, theming and atmosphere are amazing- shambhala being my number 1 roller coaster to date, everything about most of the rides is great, the park even giving backstory to all the rides and giving the rides purpose of being where they are. Everything was open and operating and, although operations were slightly slow, on my second day I purchased an express-pass for a reasonable price (€48) for unlimited fast track rides, comparing this to my local park which offers unlimited fast passes for £50 with a far inferior quality ride selection. The park is always full of life and atmosphere and it never ceases to amaze me how beautiful a park can be. This cannot really be said for its neighbouring park, Ferrari Land, only a few months after opening was completely empty, in the span of 3 or so hours I got on everything multiple times. They do however have buildings with beautiful Italian architecture but this cannot make up for how empty the park feels. They should also consider combining the parks into one as this does not really work as an up charge park, overall me and my dad payed 120 for a two day pass for both parks, a pretty good price for a 2 day pass for both parks, but I think they should just bump up the normal price and give access to Ferrari Land as standard, this along with a few other points turned my score from a 5/5 to a 4/5.
I’ve read some other reviews that talk about the staff and how terrible they were but for my visit they were great, not a single problem with them.
My only problem with the main park is the food, we ate At the cantina in the Mexico section of the park and it was average at best, our chicken lunch at Ferrari World was much better, the entertainment in the cantina was amusing however but got slightly boring and repetitive part way through. Never get a slushie at this park as well because the calippo slushies are garbage to say the least.
Overall I love this park, the theming and rides are lovely and the overall experience is one I will truly never forget, only Ferrari Land and the food could put a slight damper on my visit and even then it is one of my very favourite theme parks.

Ermita Mare de Deu de la Roca

Reviewed By Susan B - Stockport, United Kingdom

This hidden gem of a place is worth a visit for the view alone. However once you get there make sure that you don't miss anything. The rock climbing, the church, the restaurant and the location are all top of their league.

Llarga Beach

Reviewed By robert f - London, United Kingdom

This beach is ok but just ok; it is reached by a walk down a hill road( or path); then one has to walk back up the hill at the end of the day, armed with all one`s beach paraphernalia; not much fun! The beach is narrow and rocky at both ends. If one has been billeted to one of the nearby hotels by one`s Tour Operator, then one must just lump it. However for those in hotels or Apartments in that area, I would suggest Capellans beach as being more suitable( although that still entails a small hill walk)

Platja de la Llosa

Reviewed By QuinLabRat - Reading, United Kingdom

Little coves created with rocks create mini lagoons with gentle waves for children to splash and play!
Water relatively clear and warm with the odd fish !
Disabled access and portaloos and showers every 59 metres or so.
Lots of cafes and play areas dotted around.
Lifeguards in attendance and equipment for hire in certain coves.

Avenida Jaume I

Reviewed By Kule Dude - Bromsgrove, United Kingdom

The Avenida comprises several parallel tracks - a normal bidirectional roadway for motorvehicles - a cycleway - a wide pedestrianised walkway (now with concrete bollards to prevent ingress of vehicles) and a further, separate walkway leading on to the beach.
An easy stroll on the fat, suitable for people of all ages.

Parc Sama

Parc Samà is a garden with memory, a Mediterranean orchard, a poetic forest, a melancholic palace… Parc Samà is the summer residence that in 1881 built Salvador Samà, Marquis of Marianao, between Cambrils and Montbrió, surrounded by vineyards, olive and almond trees. It is the legacy of an ‘Indiano’, a fusion of styles and a delight for the senses.

We were lucky to obtain tickets to a Flamenco Show at this unique place. After wandering around the large grounds with unusual water features and buildings we were entertained by a group led by Kiki Moreno. Can really recommend this production as true flamenco is very hard to find in this tourist destination.

El Parc del Pinaret

Reviewed By SvetlanaMosowRussia - Mosow Russia

I llike this not very big but lovely park, ideal for being either alone, just sitting on a bench or in a cafe and watch the world go by, or with your little darlings who can explore a few nicely put Playgrounds of the park. If you're lucky enough, you'll see parrots, having their nests on the palm. We were.

Paseo Maritimo

Reviewed By sandrac58 - Sunderland, United Kingdom

This is a lovely place to walk around. See the red stone walls, copper coloured, water lapping up into little caves along the rock. Walk along the boardwalk and look out to see, look across the landscape to the beautiful views. On a night time it's all well lit, very popular with the locals. Lots of bars and restaurants to stop off at.
