I was walking toward the Roman theatre and had the most amazing view of Playa EI Milagro.
But what got my attention was also the building behind me that to me had so must need to review a beautiful architecture building that this one was

Nice enough beach
Oct 2019 • Solo
This beach is a pleasant enough beach in Tarragona. Short walk from the rail station/town centre. Partly overlooked by amphitheater.

The beach itself was clean and cared for. It was low season and all the facilities plus the catering outlet were closed. There were showers available to rinse the salt water/sand off after a swim.

Depending which part of the beach you are on the background cityscape isn't the best, but it's nice enough. Didn't notice all the graffiti mentioned by previous reviewers.

Neglected beach full of graffiti and drunk people
May 2019 • Family
This beach was surprisingly awful. Dirty and full of graffiti. Also drunk people around the beach on Sunday morning with wine bottles around them and smelt very bad. Seems absolutely neglected from the ajuntamento. I don't know why the police do not fine people in Spain for graffiti. It's everywhere and ruining otherwise beautiful locations. What a pity. I won't waste my time or money to come back and visit here. Nor recommend it.

Easy gem outside Barcelona
Sep 2018 • Couples
El Milagro is an easy train ride outside of Barcelona. A great beach where you can claim your own little piece of sand. Check out our YouTube video of our trip for more sights: GoPro 2K: Running Around Spain and France HD.

Last Day at Taragona
Jul 2018 • Family
We couldn't leave Tarragona out of the picture, so we set off late on the plana bus services outside our hotel in Camp Salou through La Pineda and into Tarragona which is the last stop.

Though we didn't take a walk by the beach, we definitely walked on the main street of Tarragona (with a view of the water fountain and the tower of climbing men). This led us to the very top end where the beach was visible from the top and also the train tracks and including what looks like a marina in the distance.

The main highlights of this trip for us is the Roman ruins, not far from the beach and looks like the coliseum in Rome but very small in comparison.

There are numerous Roman sights and buildings in Tarragona, however we were running out of time and had to return to our hotel in camp salou for our last dinner. I highly recommend Tarragona, it's not too crowded during the day, has lovely shops and restaurants, beautiful views, many places to sit and rest and it definitely comes alive at night.

My favorite beach for the last 8 years
Jul 2018 • Couples
Adorable place. Clean and quite. When you came in the morning you have the impression that you are the only one on this large and beautiful place. Every morning of my holiday starts with a coffee at Al Balcon bar on the Balcon Mediteraneo, then walk beside Circus and in few minutes i'm on this really miraculous beach. Love it!

miracle?
Mar 2018 • Couples
Not really sure what's the miracle here... it's a pretty odd city beach. maybe the miracle is that there is a beach at all? well, if you go beach holidays, you would probably not come to Tarragona. But if you live here, there is at least a beach - if you like it the sandy way. Better then nothing. But a miracle...?

Best Swimming Ever!!!
Sep 2017 • Solo
I am an avid open-water swimmer, and mostly swim in colder bay and ocean water. This beach made me feel spoiled! It is like swimming in a pool, but the bottom is sand, and there are pretty fish. The water was clear and warm, but not too warm. I did laps between the bouys for 45 minutes, and it was one of the best vacation exercises of my life. The beach is warm, top-optional for women, you can change out of your wet suimsuit and warm up quickly without anyone staring at you. And it is right next to many hotels, convenience shops, and the train station, so a great place to spend your last hours in Tarragona before you, sadly, have to leave!
