    A great themed park, rides are really good although fast pass is a must if you want your day to go smoothly as queuing for hours in the normal queue isn’t fun! Recommend to stay at the on site hotels.

    This is a fantastic display, congratulations to all involved. If you go to only one place at night this is the one.

    Beautiful beach, kept very clean. Appeared to have a lot of sports activities for young people. Loads of areas to lie out on the beach. A number of beach bars to sit and chill. Area felt very safe at all times. The luminous water fountain is a must see. Fabulous display. Quiet a number of shops in the area but pretty much similar to each other.

    This water park is a nice place to go when you would like a day out. There are many slides for different ages and thrill seekers, and a few large pools to swim in. The lazy river was nice, the current takes you around it without having to swim!

    As long as you have pre bought your ticket and have a print out of it, there was no queue and you could walk straight in once they had scanned it. There were no queues for locker or ring hire so walked straight in without any queues.

    The food was nice, not a big selection as some of them were closed, maybe due to coming up to end of season but would have liked to have more options. Again it may be due to the season ending, but I found this water park to be unclean, dirty in some areas including in the pool.

    Really lovely tree lined area, perfect for a morning walk in the sun or a beautiful after dinner stroll. Immaculately clean, bins emptied regularly.

    The best part of Salou. Almost do not want to let anyone know to go here so it does not get overrun by tourists like the other two beaches nearby! I loved that you could swim far out and still be able to stand up.

    I was staying in Salou and cycled here a couple of times. There is a coastal footpath you can also walk it. I’d suggest if cycling have a good bike or be prepared to have to push up some steep slopes! If you’re in a family with young children best to take the car.

    I don’t understand the negative reviews of this beach. For me it was perfect. Clear & clean water. Great for snorkelling in the rocky areas & swimming. Plenty of bins and also a bar on the beach and toilets. I walked up to a cafe at the top of the slope as they had a good food menu which included takeaways so sat on the beach.

    It was never to busy but mainly locals rather than tourists.

    A relaxing, quiet place in the centre of Salou. Plenty of shaded seats with the sound of running water - there are ponds and small water falls to listen to, make this a nice place to stop for a few minutes.
    There is a cafe and climbing frames for children.

    We happened upon this little cove while out for a walk on our second night in Cap Salou. Its about 200ft wide so not that big. The night we went, there was an awful smell down there. So we never went back again after that. The water is calm though. There is no shower facilities like you see on some of the other beaches. There was about 10 other people on the beach so not really that busy. You have to walk down a good few steps to get to the beach, so not suitable for wheelchairs or buggies.(Unless you carry them). I probably wouldn't rush back here again, as in my opinion there are better beaches about.
    The kids had fun in the sea though!!

    There's not many play parks in Salou but this is certainly a good one. There's swings, slides, a climbing frame and some other bits.
    It's not big but its a decent size, should keep the little ones happy for an hour or so.

    Ponent is one of the some beaches located in Salou, a coastal and touristic town in the South of Catalonia, near Tarragona. It is a very long beach of sand, where you can relax, walk, see peole, do a pique-nique and, obivously, bath and sunbath all day. It is a very nice place to come with friends, the couple or children and stay all day. Also, on sand, there are bars, where you can drink or eat something. We came here in July-2021, and it was not full of people due to pandemic and that the beach is very long. Very good place to bath.

    Unfortunately, we could only view this from outside the gates as it was closed when we passed. I would have loved to see around the grounds and the interior.
